The Ecoglide Arenal Park is a stellar attraction at the Arenal Volcano National Park near La Fortuna de San Carlos. It is well known for its beautiful forest and the glorious, dense canopy. It is particularly famous for its zip line tours, which take you across the canopy for one exhilarating experience!

The Ecoglide Canopy Zipline is constructed across the entire natural canopy of the park. It is a series of 13 cables, with each subsequent cable increasing in length, and as a result, giving you a bigger rush of adrenaline each time. The first cable is 25 metres long, while the final one is a staggering 430 metres long! If that doesn’t give you a head rush, we don’t know what will!

Everyone agrees that one of their favourite parts of the zipline journey is cable number 8, better known as the Tarzan Swing. True to its name, it is a big jump where you have to swing yourself around from one tree to another to get to the next cable. Apart from the entire zipline experience, the park also has a lovely nature walk with talented tour guides who will give you the entire history of the areas flora and fauna!

All in all, the Ecoglide Arenal Park is quite an experience for everyone in the family. The fact that it is maintained by thorough professionals and has international standard ziplines only cements its status as one of La Fortuna de San Carlos’ premier attractions!

  • Great for the whole family. Prices are fair, the tour only takes about two hours max. Great friendly staff, safe and great views! Trilling adventure, lots of fun for the kids.

  • Super nice staff! Only $50 for 12 awesome ziplines. Times are 8, 10, 1 and 3. As a family with a 7 and 10 year old, we were very pleased with the guides as they were very friendly, funny and careful. We saw about 6 different birds, including toucans, as well as rubber trees. Try the tarzan swing, kids loved it! For $35 we also got the photo video package.

  • Fun nature walk. We saw a sloth and lots of different birds including a Toucan. The 13 cable zip line was a blast and was only $50 USD (per person). Friendly staff and English friendly.

  • Had a ball zip-lining here and the tarzan swing was a rush! Staff made everyone comfortable and at ease. Excellent instruction and a couple practice runs. They also dealt swiftly and competently with issues - one girl in our group couldn't get the braking right, got stuck in the middle and they had her up and going in a couple minutes. 14 platforms in all.

  • Went zip lining with a group of friends and had a blast! This was our first time so we didn't have any expectations... it turned out to be an incredible day! Our guides were awesome and so friendly. The views were breath-taking, literally!
