Meet your guide at your hotel prior to your selected morning or afternoon departure time and head to a private reserve and adventure park, located just minutes from downtown Monteverde. Your tour begins in the primary, old-growth section of the cloud forest and moves to the newer secondary forest, offering a broad perspective of life cycles in the forest.

Start your trip with a zipline tour over the canopy, providing a heart-pounding view of the cloud forest below. Then, rappel 150 feet down to the forest floor. A ladder system through the hollow core of an old tree brings you back up into the treetops, and an optional Tarzan swing free-fall experience brings you back down.

Guides accompany you through every step of the adventure to ensure your safety and entertainment, as well as to answer questions about the local ecosystem.

Get dropped off back at your hotel or other specified drop-off location in Monteverde at the end of your adventure.

Really fun but safe experience, where you'll meet great fellow travelers
, Jan 2022
Really fun but safe experience! Our guides David & Brian were very kind, funny, and pros at ziplining. Hotel pickup was a bit later than expected, but we made it there & quickly made friends with our fellow group-mates (there were only 6 of us, which was a nice size). My partner & I would recommend this to any travelers who love a thrill.
Living up to our potential

Celebrated my birthday by going to this Zip line tour. It was a great experience and a lot of fun. Pictures turned out really good. Highly recommend it.
Such a great experience!
, May 2021
What a great adventure! The guides were very kind and helpful. They told us what was coming every step of the way, and we even got to see a quetzal as we were rappelling. We enjoyed how the zip lines start off a little slower and shorter to ease you into the faster and longer lines. We highly recommend the Original Canopy Tour on your trip!
I never went to this tour AT ALL
, Apr 2021
Here's Your Review!!!! 1) Never authorized my credit card to be CHARGED $50.00 for this tour but I did put payment info in-- but NEVER SUBMITTED!! Didn't know I had to delete my info in order to cancel since I DIDN'T SUBMIT BUT CLOSED THE WEBSITE DOWN!!! 2) NEVER WENT ON THE TOUR! 3) checked email later in the day and got an email that the tour was starting in 10 minutes and I NEVER AUTHORIZED PURCHASE--- never drove the hour to tour site due to NEVER THOUGHT I EVEN BOOKED! 4) contacted booking agent VIATOR & I claimed it was indeed fraud- their agent escalated call/complaint to 'fraud division'. Then put in for refund-- which VIATOR followed up. Another agent told me later he "I Understand there was a computer/technical glitch for the site to charge you even though YOU DIDN'T SUBMIT!! I will contact tour co. "MONTEVERDE" for refund..." 5) got email today from VIATOR "unfortunately the tour company claims YOU WERE THERE FOR PART OF TOUR and therefore WILL NOT REFUND the $50.00" I still Cannot dispute this charge due to I'm still in Costa Rica--- therefore the charge WENT THROUGH!!! 6) I am a retired public school teacher living on small pension and cannot afford to lose EVEN $50.00 and will fight fight fight for my money back when I get to a USA state where I can call my Capital One credit card and file fraud!!! If Monteverde or (whatever the false liars claim to be) want to continue to keep my money--- then let the LORD deal with the liars! I WAS NEVER EVEN THERE!!!! Did not submit authorization for my card to be charged in the first place--- LIARS! Becky F--- retired school teacher Austin TX (God Bless Them I'm going to FIGHT)

Such an incredible day with very knowledgeable guides that were extremely focused on ensuring we had a fun and safe experience! There was a wide variety of canopy distances and views which were stunning, the guides took photos throughout the experience and promptly sent them after we were done, and they were very patient, thoughtful, and enjoyable to spend the time with. HIGHLY recommend this experience!
