The wildlife is so beautiful. You will see Monkey, Crocodiles, Various Species of Birds. Always wave to the River People sitting along the shore line. Lunch is served in a River Front Cafe. The food is great and the cook are very interesting. Just sit back and enjoy the native people. The Guides are very knowledgable

Of all the tours I took from Gray Line, this was the best. The pick up time was quick, late start at hotel and had the best tour guide and most hospitable Family based Canopy Tour.

So the adventure starts at Sarapiqui river boat trip, watching for animals and reptiles along the way. This is rain forest so expect it to rain all the time. So it did in ours too. We saw howler monkeys, a big iguana and a crocodile. Many birds also. The boat ride was fun and the staff were excellent.

The best part of the tour was the zip line over canopies in the private farm run by a family. The guys handling the zip line hook-up, launch etc were the best. They were strong, flexible, took every safety step along the way and the line itself is more fun. The other zip line tour we did was 6-in-1 at Rain Forest adventures - that had double line and overall looked more safer. However in Rain Forest Adventures the staff did not take all precautions these guys here took, so on the whole I give full marks to this place and credit for good facility to Rain Forest Adventures. This one was more fun because you have to control the stopping. The 6-in-1 looked elementary after having done this trip first. You have to climb steep ladders and this one is much more rigorous for those seeking extra bit of adrenaline rush. The 6-in-1 will not do the "superman" one they call adrenaline or whatever - rather sit through the line just like all others. This one was really far superior in my experience considering they don't advertise "superman" and not give it like 6-in-1..

Now the best part. The lunch is cooked by the family there and was so home-cooked. Delicious, though not many varieties. It is the intention and the genuine service minded they were is what scores all five stars. In contrast the Rain Forest Adventure (the other site) looked way too commercial. Out here, you can also go on horse back ride f you wish. I highly recommend this Zip Line for everyone. Have fun!

We did this on Dec 25. The staff was so cooperative even on the biggest holiday of the year for them. Thanks to all the staff! And as you might expect, I tipped them big on this trip.

Picked up promptly in a nice clean mini bus. Introduced to other passengers. Guide was really helpful in explaining everything to me - I was the only English speaker on today's tour. Saying that we all got on great. Did the big combo tour. It's well paced and a really packed fun day. Saw lots of wildlife in the wild on the boat trip. It was great.

We took the river adventure to Poas Volcano. The tour took us to a coffee plantation for breakfast, then to the volcano, then we took a boat ride to another location where we could zip line for an extra $30.00. The guide was very friendly and full of information. He kept the tour moving and let us stop at a waterfall to take some group pictures. Overall the day was great the highlight being the zip line. It was a 15 platform tour that took about two hours. The guys with us were great and got some great pictures of us in action. I would recommend this for anyone looking to see as much as possible in a short time!
