HIGHLY RECOMMEND! Probably my favorite day in Costa Rica--though it's a hard choice. The zip-lining was AMAZING, I didn't realize we would be zip lining over 2 waterfalls! The rafting experience was excellent, the rapids were great, challenging but manageable. Though I fell out twice, the water felt amazing! During the rafting trip we stopped for a fruit break, and saw so much in the trees: toucans, monkeys, sloths, iguanas and more!

The tour is guided by two different operators. Both tours are fantastic with a lot of fun. At zip lining 7 zip lines with different length and speed are waiting for you. Our guides Frank and Marcus were excellent and you felt safe with them at all times. The rafting is pretty fast in the beginning. You start with the most difficult level and for someone who does it for the first time it is a bit tricky. Again, our guide Marco was excellent. It is really adventurous and there is a little stop with pineapple and melon for refreshment. The lunch was great and there you learn something about brewing coffee and sugar cane. I can really recommend this tour and say again thank you! And by the way, there is a cameraman at the rafting who shoots wonderful pictures of the teams. You can also buy them at the end.
