One of my favorite experiences here! Make sure to pay extra for the zip line photos. The guides were all very nice and had great personalities. I kept turning during the zip line and they would keep giving me suggestions until I finally got it!

The tour was well organized from the transportation, snacks, food and tours. For the zip-lining, they are very safety-oriented. It was like a military operation. For the rafting, I had Super Mario who was a lot of fun and inspirational.

Great tour, best way to get to La Fortuna from San Jose as you stop off at several sites including coffee plantation, two waterfalls and zip lining. It was our first day and a great introduction to Costa Rica

La caminata por el bosque es increíble. Y las tirolesas wooooow si eres fan de la adrenalina y aventura obvio debes hacerlas

Guides were amazing- the whole thing was really well organised and one of the highlights of our La Fortuna trip!
