Costa Rica Canopy Tours
For thrill seekers and weekend adventurers, canopy tours (also called Zip Line tours) have become all the rage in Costa Rica. After a trek into the jungle, you put on a harness and sail down a metal cable from tree to tree.
A couple things to note. 1) Most of these tours require a decent amount of hiking and climbing uphill before the real fun begins. The good companies will have fun and entertaining guides who point out wildlife and tell jokes on the walk which make the time go by quickly. 2) Most of the operations have lines that are quick, but not fast. There are fast operations out there, but ask questions before you book. You don't want some fly-by-night operation that compromises safety. Ask around and you'll quickly get a consensus on who the best operator(s) is in the area.
The Original Canopy Tour has operations in Monteverde, Limon, Drake Park and San Jose. There are also canopy tours in Arenal, Guanacaste, La Fortuna, Malpais, Manuel Antonio and Montezuma.
