    What to Expect
    Meet your guide at your hotel prior to your selected morning or afternoon departure time and head to a private reserve and adventure park, located just minutes from downtown Monteverde. Your tour begins in the primary, old-growth section of the cloud forest and moves to the newer secondary forest, offering a broad perspective of life cycles in the forest.

    Start your trip with a zipline tour over the canopy, providing a heart-pounding view of the cloud forest below. Then, rappel 150 feet down to the forest floor. A ladder system through the hollow core of an old tree brings you back up into the treetops, and an optional Tarzan swing free-fall experience brings you back down.

    Guides accompany you through every step of the adventure to ensure your safety and entertainment, as well as to answer questions about the local ecosystem.

    Get dropped off back at your hotel or other specified drop-off location in Monteverde at the end of your adventure.

    Sliding through the canopies is one of the coolest thing we have done! I’m scared of heights but Sergio and Bryan was such good guides and took great care of us. We would really recommend this company for your canopy tour in Monteverde.

    My friend and I dropped by for their 2:30 tour and were not disappointed! Lovely facility, great (English speaking) tour-guides, multiple elements to the tour so you aren't exclusively zipping. Highly recommend.

    Sorry I have no idea where they pick from. They do say they will pick from all major hotels, etc, so worth giving them a call. But please bear in mind, some platforms are a bit small and uneven and we were very disappointed... More
