Zip Lining

If you love adventure, a canopy zipline tour is a must. If you love nature, a canopy zipline tour is a must. If you love spectacular views, a canopy zipline tour is a must!

We admit – we’re big fans of canopy tours (zip lining), Costa Rica’s quintessential adventure and the most popular family activity in Costa Rica. This experience is like few others: With the wind in your hair and thrill in your heart, you’ll fly through the forest canopy, leap into the abyss, and even swing like Tarzan.

But it’s not just the adventure we love; zip line tours are your ticket to a Costa Rica you wouldn’t otherwise see – to the forest canopy, home to a huge variety of birds (including the iconic resplendent quetzal) and other animals (think: sloths, monkeys, and colorful frogs) you would normally miss while hiking the forest trails far below.

This-Not-That: Canopy tours aren’t the only way to explore the canopy. If you’re looking for something a bit tamer, look into aerial trams and hanging bridges.
