This was my first time ziplining so I don't have much to compare it to. However, I know poor customer service when I see it and this was just that. There were 27 of us in a group and the entire process was rushed from start to finish. The ziplining itself was just ok; it was fun and somewhat exciting,... More

I'm giving this 3 stars because I went to Sky Trek a few days prior and this place just doesn't compare. Our group was very large, maybe 40 or more people, which meant that everything took forever. I think this place is good if you have kids but if you're looking for awesome zip lining, this wouldn't be my first... More

Had a great afternoon with our young children zip lining for the first time. My 6 & 9 year olds wanted to try zipping. As a mom i was a little apprehensive to tie my children up to a rope and send them careening out in the CR wilderness over valleys and jungle. But Ecoglide made it easy for them... More

Great place to do your first zip line if you're unsure that you'll like it. They use a double line so it's safer if you need a guide to go with you. If you're more adventurous or know you're not afraid of heights, try parque vista Arenal instead which is a real canopy zip line the whole way, has stunning... More

If you have a fear of heights, don't do this activity. Even if you were told it's not that high... it is. If you still go and want to go back you can do it after the 4th zipline. But if you manage to do it to you will enjoy great views and tons of adrenalin. Note that if you... More

We joined this tour on an afternoon in January. The guides were friendly and helped everyone have a great experience. There are so many zip-lining opportunities in Costa Rica that I had struggled to choose one, and so I'm happy I went with the Ecoglide course, because it combined really good speed with the sense of moving through jungle that...

It was a really good experience. We are a family of 5, children 3,8,11 years old. Our guides were Ronald and Alex, they were very nice, patient and the knew what they were doing. Both of them helped us to zip line with our 3 years old. Our kids had tons of fun. It's quite high and some lines are... More

The tarzan swing was pretty cool! Lots of zip lines that are high and fast. Definitely an adrenaline rush. The group was really big, probably 20-30 people. I've never been in such a big group for zip lining, usually its like 8 max. It was less personal than past times I've gone zip lining on other trips. Felt a little... More

What a fantastic experince. Ronald, Warren and Edward were our guides for the zipline not only were they fantastic but patient with my nerves lol. Definitely an experience for anyone regardless of age or fear of heights. Tarzan swing well.....its for the brave but since you've come all this way, you might as well do it. Yolo...pura vida :)

If you can only do one adventure activity in Arenal/La Fortuna, do the Ecoglide Zipline and Tarzan Swing. It is amazing. Tour consists of 13 cables with lengths up to 430m (1,410ft) and a Tarzan Swing, where you bungee off of a 38m (125ft) high platform. The guides are great - they are fun, while still being extremely safety conscious.... More
