Have you ever wondered what adventure tourism truly is?


Picture yourself soaring through Costa Rica’s, suspended on a zip line, and marveling at the breathtaking nature from a new perspective.

This thrilling experience has captured the hearts of countless travelers seeking adventure, fun, adrenaline rush, and a unique connection with the great outdoors. 


The concept of zip-lining in Costa Rica traces back to 1974 when a visionary wildlife biologist from California hooked up the first treetop cables to access the upper canopy ecosystems of a giant Espavel tree on the Osa Peninsula in Costa Rica.


This innovation allowed scientists to delve into the heart of the rainforest, gaining unprecedented access to study its diverse flora and fauna. It wasn’t long before word spread about this exhilarating way to experience nature. 


Since then, zip-lining’s popularity has soared, beyond the scientific community to the number one activity tourist seek when visiting Costa Rica.


Zip-lining is an opportunity to break barriers, face fears, and experience liberation. Each zip-line leaves you craving for more, making

zip-lining a must-try activity while in Costa Rica. 


How does zip-lining work?


Similar to rock climbing or rappelling, participants are safely attached to the steel lines using top-of-the-line equipment, including:

  • A full body harness: The harness provides hands-free comfort and security so riders can enjoy each ride to its fullest.
  • Cable pulleys and carabiners: Each rider’s body harness is connected to the zip line by a pulley system with steel carabiners and a braking mechanism.
  • Helmets and gloves: Every guest riding the zip lines is required to wear a protective helmet and gloves.
