One of the most popular activities to do when visiting Guanacaste Costa Rica is zip-lining through the canopy of giant Guanacaste trees! At our partners with the Congo Canopy you will experience authentic Costa Rica and explore natural forests that have existed for hundreds of years nestled in this quiet enclave of Central America. The Original Canopy tour combines 100's of meters of zip-lines and platforms with hanging bridges for a truly unique adventure. Our professional zip line guides will fit you for your harness, helmet and other safety equipment. Then you will listen to an important safety speech detailing the do's and don'ts of zip-lining and then you are ready to fly through the canopy. This is a kid friendly tour that the whole family will love! Feel the thrill as you finally get hooked up to your first zip-line and are set free to zip down 100's of meters of cable suspended between giant Guanacaste trees. Keep on the lookout for families of monkeys foraging in the canopy for mangoes, bananas and other types of food.The Extreme Canopy Tour is our newest and most extreme canopy tour. First try out the extra long zip lines, some over 450 meters in length and feel the freedom as you glide through the forest canopy...three different times. Then experience the rush of rappelling from 22 meters up in the canopy and get ready for the ride of your life. The Congo Trail Extreme Tarzan Swing is known as one of the most exilhirating rides in Guanacaste. Once you reach your 20+ meter platform you are harnessed in for a heart pounding adrenaline filled Tarzan Swing drop that will make you wish you hadn't eaten that egg burrito for breakfast. After zip lining through the forest canopy enjoy a visit at the Monkey Sanctuary. Orphaned baby monkeys are not always adopted by another family of monkeys, but if they are found in time, they are brought here. They usually haven't developed the skills to survive in the wild, so the Monkey Sanctuary becomes their permanent home. Here you will be able to visit with a number of different species of monkeys, including the famous Howler Monkey. You may even have the opportunity to feed these amazing animals. The Monkey Sanctuary rescues more than just monkeys. There is a petting zoo with sheep, horses, and a bull!
