Zip lining is the most popular adventure in Costa Rica for foreign tourists, this activity has become a boom in our country and more and more businesses of this kind are opening every year. All of them claim to be best and all of them are fun for the people, regardless if it’s the best or the worst zip lining tour of the country; the only real way to know which is better over the others is to do them and compare them. Some people also uses the information on the internet to compare them, but some of them have more technological tools to have more exposure on the web, but that doesn’t necessarily means that they are the best; the best example I can use is the absolutely best zip lining tour of Costa Rica, which doesn’t have much exposure on the web because their tools and exposure in the web is minimal, but with the potential of being a huge business with a better administration… We as tour guides have done most of the zip lining or canopy tours (as they are also called) of Costa Rica; here is some information about the top zip lining tours in each Costa Rica Destination.

Zip lining area: The Best Zip lining tours in Monteverde are the ones at Selvatura Park, Extreme Canopy and . All of these tours are done in the beautiful Monteverde Cloud Forest and we highly advise to take the first tour in the morning if possible, because it usually gets cloudy in this area around mid-morning. We also recommend to carry a sweater or coat, because Monteverde is high up in the mountains where is very chilly by default, but with the speed at the cables it gets even colder; or if it happens to be raining it really turns out to be a very cold experience...
