About 100% Aventura
100 Aventura is one of the most popular adventure parks in Monteverde Costa Rica. Situated on a reforested area, 100 Aventura has been offering adventure tours since early 2010. The views are nice but the forest is secondary, so the scenery is a bit rustic, but the location is the best for spotting some wildlife in comparison with the other adventure parks in Monteverde.
100 Aventura offers 2 adventures:
- 100 Aventura Zip Lines
- 100 Aventura Hanging Bridges
Aventura Zip Lines
The 100% Aventura Zipline Tour is one of the most popular ziplining tours in Monteverde. The tour includes 10 ziplines, featuring the longest zipline in all Latin America, an amazing 1,6 km (1 mi) cable that you can do in the superman style (where you are connected to the zipline cable with your body facing down as though you were flying like superman), or in the regular ziplining style (where you sit upright with your body facing forward), a walk in a hammock bridge, a Tarzan swing, and a hike before the final zipline.
As mentioned before, the scenery here is a bit rustic because the forest is secondary, but the ziplining experience course itself is extremely fun. Since this is a reforested area, the engineers who built the park had a lot flexibility on how to use the land because it was not full of trees as it typically is the case with primary forests, so they capitalized on this and managed to build a super fun and adventurous course (this is where the name of the park came from; “100% Aventura” referring to a tour that is 100% adventurous) which makes up for the lack of scenery offered by some of the other ziplining parks in the area.
- Ten ziplines
- A hammock bridge.
- Brake with gloved hands.
- Optional, big Tarzan swing.
- A hike before the final line.
- Latin Americas Longest Zipline
- Two lines can be done in Superman mode.
Given the adventurous and a bit more strenuous nature of this course, this tour is better for folks who are more physically fit and in search of a more thrilling zipline experience.
Prices start at $30 for local residents (all ages), $41 for non-resident kids (5 to 11 years old) and $50 for non-resident adults (12 and above).
Aventura Hanging Bridges
The 100 Aventura Hanging Bridges tour includes a tour guide and since the forest is not dense on this area, there is usually more opportunity to spot animals in comparison with the other parks with hanging bridges in Monteverde. We recommend this tour to those who want to learn about nature and spot some wildlife in addition to the hanging bridges experience, however, we have to say that there are other parks with more impressive hanging bridges such as Sky Adventures Monteverde and Selvatura Park. You will not get to see as much wildlife at those two parks as you will probably see in 100% Aventura, but the astonishing views are much better there, so it’s a matter of personal preferences, if you prefer the views, you will be much better served at the latter two, but on the other hand, if you prefer to learn about nature and potentially spot more wildlife, then the 100% Aventura Hanging Bridges will serve you well.
These hanging bridges are laced through secondary forest so it will not be as prominent as the forest in other parks like Selvatura Park or Sky Adventures Monteverde, however, this kind of forest will give you a better chance for spotting birds and other wildlife, which your tour guide will help you point out.
Animals tend to be more prominent in lower level forests, what is knowned as secondary forest and they especially gravitate towards rainforest which is the kind of forest that is available at the 100% Aventura Hanging Bridges.
In conclusion, this will not be the best option if you are looking for the typical Monteverde Cloud Forest hanging bridges experience, but the way the tour is presented (with a bit more adventure and with a naturalist guide included to help you spot some wildlife) might compensate a bit for the lack of actual primary forest.
100 Aventura also offers an on-site restaurant, as well as the option to purchase your adventure’s footage (you cannot use your own GoPro). Insurance is also included on the tours as well as the appropriate safety measures to ensure things go well.
We recommend that you get your tickets in advance to secure your spots and to skip the lines at the park.
