Wonderful time bungee jumping! Bungee Jumping at Monteverde Extremo Park

I loved Kenneth and Lenny who were our guides for our first time bungee jumping! They made us feel very safe (seeing them check each of the hooks was very reassuring) and were super encouraging- I hesitated on my jump, and Kenneth talked me through it, especially waiting out the wind. He answered all my questions (and believe me, I asked a LOT) and didn't make me feel pressured at all. The videos were a great purchase- I love rewatching them and re-living the moment!

El Tigre Waterfall Tour - Pura Vida ! El Tigre Waterfalls Tour Monteverde

This tour was the best part of trip to Costa Rica. Our guide was Erick and he did a great job explaining things and and answering questions. He also took some great photos for us. This is a great combo tour with hiking, waterfalls, bridges, and horseback riding. We did not have time to have the lunch but other travelers told us the food is great and inexpensive. On this tour you really have the feeling that you are having a special adventure. Highly recommended !

Hanging Bridges in Monteverde Costa Rica Skywalk at Sky Adventures Monteverde

The degree you can enjoy this adventure depends highly on the weather And the day you plan for it. If you want to see the volcano in Arenal and the lake on the opposite side and as far as the human eye is capable of seeing and registering the green forest, the blue sky and the white patches of cloud in the distance in your memory, then choose a clear and sunny day, which by the way is a big challenge on its own, because you can hardly have the chance to enjoy a full day with no clouds and a little bit of rain, especially in Monte Verde.

Great hike for families! Canopy Walkways at Selvatura Park

After my husband and daughter finished zip lining, our 2-year-old and I met them to hike the hanging bridges trail at Selvatura Park. We did this on our own, without a tour guide. The trail is well maintained and the bridges are too. Still, it’s nerve-wracking walking across them. They lean and sway and bounce with each step... and everyone else’s steps. We never felt unsafe though. The further we went on the trail the fewer people we saw. I don’t know if people were heading back or what but eventually we had the trail almost to ourselves. Even with our 2-year-old, it took about an hour to an hour and a half to do the whole trail. There are 8 bridges in total which was perfect. Few enough to keep them interesting, but enough that we felt like we didn’t need to see any more. You would probably be able to see more wildlife with a guide, but this particular hike was all about the bridges for us so we were plenty satisfied.

Superman Zipline and Tarzan Swing Ziplining Tour at 100% Aventura Park

We were in Monteverde March end 2020 and decided to visit 100% Aventura due to 2 unique rides that they offer. They have the Superman zip-line and the Tarzan swing. There are many canopy zip-line offered in Monteverde but this place stood out due the adrenaline rush of these 2 rides. There are some 8 rides and they ease you into the more difficult ones while gaining experience and confidence with the shorter one. The largest one is the superman zip-line where you lie flat and can't control the speed - so the heavier you are the faster you go. Another unique ride is the Tarzan swing where you jump from a high platform while tied to a rope and then you swing for around 1 mins till the attendant stops you using ropes. This is a baby version of bungee jumping as you are tied from the waist and while you drop down you swing back and fro as the rope is tied and hanging from another platform. Your hips do get a jolt once you drop down and the heavier you are the larger the swing. The harness was also not very comfortable.

Some of the BEST zip lines in the world - Very Fun! Ziplining Tour at Monteverde Extremo Park

Awesome zip lines and incredible views including the Pacific coastline. We had a clear, sunny day. Some of the longest zip lines I have ever experienced and the staff was very efficient. The only downside is having to "brake" on some lines, but flying like "Superman" is a 'must do' . I decided against the "Tarzan Swing" but it looked fun. There was quite a bit of hiking uphill along with staircases. I was having to take quick breaks with my heavy breathing so if you are out-of-shape (like me), take it easy and bring a water bottle! There were two McCaws hanging out near the offices which was a cool bonus.

Lush views, amazing experience Ziplining Tour at Selvatura Park

We had an amazing time doing the ziplining tour. Everything was so efficient and organized, and everyone was so friendly. The views were spectacular and it was an impressively long tour, I think there were 13ish ziplines total. This was the absolute highlight of my trip to Costa Rica.

Excellent zip wire experience Ziplining Tour at Sky Adventures Monteverde

Had a great morning on the zip wires, heavy wind and rain at the top made it a bit of a hairy experience at the start. Weather cleared up as we made our way down. Good instructions, simple for anyone, sky tram up, 6 zip lines down with a bungee type jump (totally safe) or rappel down.
