Just 15 minutes from Playa Del Coco this is a great excursion. Safety is performed well with 99% tie off, just switching lanyards is the only time a person is not tied off, which is acceptable. Great fun with 11 ziplines. Only problem is that if you buy the optional photos for $20 and up they are shot with a... More

This is most service oriented group of guides, so good with kids. They make it fun, safe and a little thrill for adults who are rocking it. The cost is $35 per person. We turned down the professional photographer but the zip guide asked if we wanted him to take our photo and all 10 faces are showing in the... More

This was so much fun we went back the next day! We initially chose this location because it was close to Riu where we were staying. Several of us tried the zip line (most for the first time) and decided to go back the next day to see the wildlife exhibit. They also have ATV tours and a nice gift... More

We booked our tour with Joel on the beach in front of Riu Guancaste. We went to the rain forest, a waterfall, and zip lining. Steven our guide and Randall our driver were fun as well as professional. They showed us sloths, monkeys, and iguanas. We drove to a lodge in the rain forest where we met up with Freddie... More

We had an amazing time here! It was our first time in Costa Rica and ziplining was one thing we really wanted to do. We booked through Mardigi Tours at our hotel and decided to just do this activity as opposed to a package. The guides were fantastic. They were so funny and very helpful. I cannot remember all of...

We went ziplining with this company one day and then the next day ATV'ing with them and both excursions were worth every penny. The guys who took us ziplining were very experienced and reassuring. We saw monkeys and did the superman while on one line. The guy who took us out on the four wheelers was just as great! We... More

A group of five of us visited the Congo Trail Canopy Tour and decided to go all in with the regular tour, the extreme tour, and a visit to the animal sanctuary. All were great! The extreme tour was definitely a step up from the regular tour in terms of adrenaline, and we all agreed it was definitely worth the... More

First time zip lining and it was awesome. We know that we wanted to do zip lining when in Costa Rica and Congo Trail Canopy Tour was suggested to us since it is only a few minutes away from our resort. We did the regular line and we were with 2 other couples the whole time. Our guides were great... More

Day 8 The folks here are super friendly, and the tour was beautiful. Part thrill ride, part scenic tour, there are 11 stages of zip-lines and it takes about an hour. Many of the platforms which are supported by the trees have placards identifying the type of tree you're on (which is cool for this tree-lover!). Didn't see any monkeys... More
