We booked this tour thinking we'd get a nice combination of zip lines and canopy bridge tours - because that's what the description said. We got zip lines. They were amazing. We didn't really get the canopy or guided tour portion. It was mostly walking to the next zip line, no tour, no nature, no wildlife. The small bit at... More

The zip line was fun and adventurous but with the description of "canopy tour" I expected a guide to give a little info or hike. We didn't see any animals like I had hoped for in this. Really this is just a zip line experience skipping the beginning sections and just doing the 7 adventurous ones. If you expect a... More

This tour was booked through Wave Expeditions as part of a combo tour. Both companies are first class. We did 7 stations and they were really fun. Flying over La Fortuna waterfall was beautiful. Arsenio was our guide and made the tour more interesting with his native Maleku knowledge. Could only have been better if we had done the full... More

There were 7 zip lines and one was 1 km long and with a clear view of a waterfall. The guides were experienced and attentive - gave good explanations and assisted young visitors. They also rode along with lighter visitors to endure that they could make it along the entire line. I felt safe even though it was a thrilling... More

Excellent caring staff, which I appreciated as a first timer. Safety measures provided security as you flew over the canopy of trees and wildlife. The guides took very good care of any children or frightened adults.

What fun! This was our first zipline experience and I cannot praise our guides enough for making it such a safe and memorable adventure. The ride was thrilling and the views of the mountains and Lake Arenal from the zipline were incredible! We also purchased the lunch that is optional with the tour and I have to say that it... More

I want to say, I have a terrible fear of heights, but booked this tour with my boyfriend (who has no fear of heights whatsoever), in hopes that I would overcome it and have a good time. I was proven right. The guides made me feel comfortable with my fear, holding onto me and ensuring I was doing everything right,... More

This review is for the Arenal Canopy Vista tour. This is more of a traditional zip-lining adventure, as you travel between the trees (others in the area are much higher). We chose this one so that my 5-year-old could participate, and she loved it. The guides do a great job and, like most activities in Costa Rica, are very friendly.... More
