After pickup from your San Jose hotel in the morning, begin your 1.5-hour journey to Puerto Viejo de Sarapiqui with your naturalist guide and pass through one of the most famous national parks in Costa Rica.

Once you arrive, discover Costa Rica's beautiful tropical wildlife on a riverboat trip. Enjoy views of the magnificent rainforest on a 2-hour boat ride along the water, and look out for forest inhabitants such as toucans, monkeys, sloths, crocodiles and more!

Arrive at the private reserve, where you’ll have the choice to horseback ride or hike up to the canopy. After receiving a safety briefing from your naturalist guide, embark on your canopy adventure. Using a special system of steel cables and professional climbing gear, you’ll roam through the treetops and leap from platform to platform in the tropical rainforest. No experience required for this unique experience!

After an adrenaline-packed two hours, enjoy a home-style lunch at the private reserve before relaxing on a scenic drive back to San Jose.

The tour was such a great experience! Jorge was really friendly, fun and knowledgeable, making the long drive to the location feel much shorter than it was. Zip-lining was so much fun, one of the instructors took photos for us throughout and we paid 20 for a CD with the photos on - much better than us trying to take photos and potentially dropping the camera in the middle of the rainforest. When we got back the food was already prepared for us and was really lovely, traditional Costa Rican food. Jorge also showed us around the family's greenhouses which housed plants, snakes and frogs. The only slight cricitism though more with the operator's description of the tour than the tour itself: the horse-riding was not actually included and is not something they normally do for this tour, however the family kindly saddled up two of their horses for us anyway. All in all, definitely worth the money and would certainly do it again.
