We highly recommend these adventure tours. The Zipline and rafting combo were with 2 different companies. We loved them both! The Balsa river rafting was highly adventurous because the rain had increased the river rapids to a little more intensity than usual. We had a wonderful guide, Jorge, who helped us through with no problems. The fresh fruit snack was refreshing and the lunch was very delicious. We did zipline in the morning but since it was a combo package we didn't complete all the zip lines this company had to offer. The 9 that we did were fabulous. One was almost 1 km and the rain was pelting us. We flew so fast that we could hardly see the guides that were waiting for us on the end. They were very skilled at helping us novices. We would absolutely do this again.

Fernando Moss was an excellent guide, who gave us terrific detail on our trip, sights. He was patient and he clearly loves what he does. I can't recommend this tour enough!

I cant swim but this was one of THEEE BEST. I would do this over and over and over again!!! 10 out of 10! Wave Rafting is AWESOME!!!! ENZO IS THE BEST!

It was amazing. My wife and I really enjoyed ourselves. We're looking forward to coming back. Yordan was an awesome guide.

Totally secure, very well prepared staff & beautiful surroundings.
