    OMGOSH, absolutely the best and most exciting experience out there. Zipping through the beautiful Coast Arican Rain Forest is amazing. This company is a winner!!!

    really worth it and have fun. If you are looking for an adventure and I would recommend it. And the tour guide was so nice and friendly.

    Renata, who took us to each part of the tour, was one of the best (if not THE best) tour guide we ever had! His friendliness, knowledge, and willingness to accommodate was far beyond the norm. His English was perfect and almost completely unaccented. The zip line portion of the tour had me concerned at first because the zip line guides seemed to send the next client down the line before the last one had arrived. However, the lines were among the longest and fastest we have ever done so there was never any close proximity between clients. And after about the third line the spacing between the clients always resulted in the arrival of the previous client before the next one was sent down the line. Guides were consistently thorough and systematic in safety practices hooking and unhooking clients from the lines. While Renato did not accompany us on the zip lines themselves, he did accompany us on the canal excursion and greatly enhanced the experience through his knowledge and commentary on the environment and wildlife.(He even asked at one point if he talked too much but I assured him that we were learning so much that “too much” was not possible!)

    We had a great time zip-lining on the river cruise and learning about Limon. WE went through customs and they were right there with a sign for us, we got on our bus and headed out. Our guide was informative and we learned a lot about the country. The zip lining was fun and the riverboat ride was informative and we saw moneys, a sloth, various birds lizards and a crocodile. The price was a lot less than the cruise ship excursion and more personal than the big bus tour that the cruise ship had. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves

    Our cruise company (NCL) offered a similar shore excursion but with a minimum age of 12 for the zip lining. Therefore, I searched online for a tour that accepts also 10 year olds. I booked this tour directly via tripadvisor and paid online in full upfront. I mention this because we had someone on the tour who only made a partial deposit and had to pay the remainder on the bus. Although he apparently was told during the booking that cards are accepted for this it actually wasn’t the case that day and he had to pay cash, which caused some confusion and hassle due to a lack of sufficient cash at hand. Again, this was not the case for us and our booking went super smooth, from registering, through payment up to receiving and using the online ticket, which we could also download into Apple Walllet. Now to the tour itself: after disembarking we walked outside the restricted port zone where we were greeted by the guides who walked isn’t the well maintained bus. The following bus ride took about 1 1/2 hrs, which just flew by though as our tour guide gave us really informative insights into the agriculture, culture and other aspects of the country. Once we had reached the zip lining location we were greeted by the very professional guides who provided us with our equipment. The 9 zip-line rides were so much fun and absolutely appropriate for age ten years and above (although your child should have done it before and shouldn’t be too afraid). Our two daughters just loved it. Once done we were served a bit of fresh fruit and some water before the bus took us to a small jetty near the Tortuguero National Park where we boarded a boat to explore the canals. Our tour guide as well as the captain did a fantastic job spotting all sorts of animals (sloths, butterflies, iguanas, lizards, birds, monkeys). However, you don’t actually enter the National Park itself, which apparently would take too long. On the way back we briefly stopped at the roadside outside the gate of a banana plantation, which felt a bit strange and useless. The following stop at a small cocoa farmer sales shop, however, was informative and worthwhile. All in all the best tour of our entire cruise and very recommended.

    The organization by and professionalism of the guide and driver were excellent. Everything went as planned and we even had time for an additional stop at a beach. The canal tour allowed us to see some of the local wildlife and our van driver was great at spotting along the way animals. My only challenge was that on four of the nine runs when ziplining I did not make it to the next platform. This required me to pull myself along the cable - exhausting! The safety precautions taken and the instructions given by the ziplining staff were thorough and well done. My husband and I are two seniors who had never ziplined before but we felt very comfortable.

    We had a great time doing the zipline and the riverboat ride was good as well. It was super easy to find them when we arrived based on their instructions. We decided to save some money and not go through the ship excursion. After arriving we got on a small bus with mostly folks from our ship. We started with the zipline in the morning on a private property that they owned. We want to just call out that they do have a person that will take your picture and video only on the first zip. I wish that they mention that it was only going to be on the first as I was expecting more photos on the other lines. For some reason, I thought they had hidden cameras, but it was only a person on the first ride down. The price is a bit pricey at $45 for two-person for photos on what I would consider the slowest line. After zip-lining, we did the river tour. We didn't have binoculars and I think it would have been more enjoyable with binoculars. I wish these tours offer binoculars as part of the booking. I think it would make them actually stand out from the other tour provider. If you are like me I really don't have a reason to own a binocular or want to carry one on vacation. The shops that we stopped at I think are also owned by the same people. The prices are a bit high and I think you can find a better deal around the port. Overall, it was what I was expecting from these tours. Besides my feedback to the tour company, the tour guide was good and we had a great experience in a small group.

    The drive into hills was first the adventure with the views of coast and the rainforest along with the city. Then we got outfitted in hard hats, gloves and harness. All very secure fit and operators checked that it was still tight all the time we were zipping. The braking system was done by the staff on each line and they had enough experince that the stop was away from anything hard. Saw red and green poison frogs (so tiny), howler monkey were close by us on several lines. We had a large group and it took time for us to traverse the whole course. Good picture opportunities. We were able to rehydrate ourselves in gift shop and then traveled to canal boat. That portion of day included seeing sloths, lizards, igrets, cranes and howler monkeys along with mangroves and maybe an alligator. There was side trip to a learn about bananas and opportunity to visit a local gift shop besdie the boat cruises gift shop

    This tour was SO well done. I felt safe throughout the zipline portion and could just relax and have fun. The canal cruise was also nice--saw several types of wildlife in their natural habitat.

  • 14-Nov-2019

    We went to the Veragua Rainforest for the zip lining. The ride was through local rural homes, and our guide, Steven, explained about their lives, the flowers and animals. The eleven zip lines were fun, and the guides were very professional and ensured our safety. After that we went for a cruise on the canal. Our guide and boat driver were excellent at finding animals and birds. We saw a sloth just four feet away! Howler monkeys, toucans, a huge iguana, another bright green lizard with a crest, caiman, more sloths and lots of birds and plants. This trip is definitely worth your time and money.
