Owner description: Canopy Safari provides tourists a full blown adventure tour. Set in the heart of the tropical rainforest we have something for everyone. An exciting canopy zip line tour with ten zip lines, two rapel limes, a suspension bridge and a tarzan swing.

This zip line tour was amazing. You get to do a number of zip lines that are pretty long and other exciting stuff like grappling, Tarzan swings, suspension bridge, and a superman zip line. The guides are super friendly, laid back, and funny. They made the trip way more enjoyable. The only negative of this activity is the gouge on the price of photos. They charge $20 PER EACH PERSON in your group for photos, so if you have a family of 5 you have to pay $100 to get the photos of each person.

We had so much fun ziplining with Canopy Safari. Our guide, Alex, was great. It was a bit of a drive from our hotel, but worth taking in the sites. We got to see a working farm on our way up.

Felt safe the entire tour and there was a good variety of ziplines, free falls, and a superman line at the end. Just be prepared to pay $20/person for photos. I wish I would have known that before. I would have brought my own camera and some cash.

Either way, I would definitely recommend this group for ziplining! It's a very pretty location, and you get a great home cooked lunch with the deal.

Not our first time on a zip line excursion, but lots of fun! The guides were terrific and kept track of all of us, encouraging where needed and teasing where welcome. Our boys (15 & 13) enjoyed this day also. Our older son and I liked going upside down like Spider Man, and we also enjoyed making a front flip off of one platform on our way across! I loved the surprise drop like Tower of Terror at Disney! Despite a light drizzle, we were able to enjoy a terrific day. We even saw a few toucans flying through the tree tops! Arrival drinks of water, coffee and juice were welcome after the long drive, and the post lunch was very tasty!

I enjoyed the zip lining and the crew was great. I paid cash 40.00 for my pictures to be emailed to me and received nothing. I was given the run around from Carlos as he claimed he didn't have anything that stated I paid. My advise is if you use this company I would make sure you get what you pay for prior to leaving the tour as they cannot be trusted to send anything.

My wife and kids (14, 12, 10, 10) did the zip line adventure with Canopy Safari yesterday, and it was outstanding from beginning to end. Our guide Alex and driver Wendel picked us up from our hotel and narrated an entertaining and informative 45-minute drive through the Costa Rican countryside and into the foothills of the mountains. Cracking jokes and bantering with the passengers in his charming Tico way, Alex taught us about the palm oil plantations we drove by and pointed out a variety of different trees and plants, such as the teak tree with its red staining leaves, used for dyes and henna-like temporary tattoos, and the green and orange striped rainbow tree. The dirt road was a little bumpy but not bad, and Wendel navigated it with aplomb. Upon arriving we were given fresh fruit, water and juice, did a quick tour of the butterfly garden, serpentarium (snakes), and crocodile pond (one somewhat lonely guy), then harnessed up and given a safety lesson. And then the heavens opened up, a not infrequent occurrence in this area in August. No matter! We trekked up the hills, and despite the downpour the well-maintained path was easy to navigate (though it was a bit of a work out; I wouldn't recommend this for people in poor physical shape). Soaked to the bone, but enjoying it, we then started the zip lines. Alex and the rest of the team were professional and detail oriented about getting themselves and us safely and efficiently through each course all the while keeping us entertained. The zip lines, rappel lines, Tarzan swing and Superman ending all were excellent - we even went upside down on some of the zip lines!
When we returned we were served a delicious Tico lunch then driven home. All in all an unforgettable experience - don't come to Manuel Antonio/Quepos without going to Canopy Safari.
