I went with a friend during the low season and we were the only ones there so we had the whole place to ourselves. The staff enjoy what they do and have a good time with it. I am afraid of unenclosed heights but many backups in place to keep you safe. The staff would joke with me, jokingly try... More

First of all - wow! We have seen many zipline companies, but Ecoglide was phenomenal. First, every line has two independent ziplines in case one should break, you will still be safe. Second, the harnesses were snug and the guides were quick, efficient, and very knowledgeable and personable. We took our family of four (kids ages 8 and 6) and... More

The ziplines themselves were fun, and the views as you zipped through the canopy were awesome, but I wouldn't use this company again, ever. Some of the crew were nice, especially in the beginning, near the office, when they were teaching us how to zipline. Once we got out to the actual ziplines some of the crew got really mean-spirited,... More

Let me start this review by stating that I had no interest to do ziplining prior to coming to Costa Rica. I arrived with a throwing tantrum like a kid not getting what I wanted from the store. I had to just go with it because my husband already paid for it ($55/person) and there's no turning back. We didn't... More

This was an amazing experience! The staff (Ronald, Donald & Warren) were very knowledgeable, funny, competent and knew how to provide a fun environment. The ziplines themselves were astoundingly beautiful, and it was a great way to see the rainforest, Arenal Volcano, animals, birds, and the town of La Fortuna from afar. We did a few activities in the area,... More

I've never been zip lining before so was a bit terrified to be honest. I had no reason to be. This is an extremely well run operation with professional guides. Beautiful views while zipping through the forest. The Tarzan swing is INSANE! Most of our group didn't do it but my husband did and he loved it.

Definitely take this tour, it is amazing, they picked us on time at our hotel, it is a short ride from Tabacon, they work with you even if you are very nervous! My 9 year old son had a blast. Thank you Ronald Elizondo and his team. We bought the video and picture package it has a very reasonable price.

Great tip - Arrive first thing during the week. You get personalized service from Donald and Alonso with William taking excellent photos along the way. All the right gear, double lines and safety first all the way. Where else can you get sloth and anteater sightings and a great Tico massage (it's an insider tip special...ask for it) before you...
