Pura Aventura, El Guapote

4.9
Zipline, horse ride, and mountain bike through verdant primary forests at Pura Aventura. Choose from 11 zipline cables, ranging from 10 m (33 ft) to over 600 m (1,968 ft), with fantastic views of the lush rainforest canopy. Look out for howler monkeys, waterfalls, iguanas, and butterflies as you soar through the air over 1,400 ac (566 ha) of natural wonders. Try horse riding and cow herding at the working ranch, or get an adrenaline hit from 13 km (8 mi) of downhill mountain biking. Fresh fruit and water are provided afterwards, so don't worry about bringing snacks. To visit Pura Aventura on your trip to Tamarindo, use our Tamarindo trip maker tool .

    My family and I went zip-lining here, and it was all our first time. When we looked off the first platform, we could not believe how high it was, but the guides and the equipment made us all feel safe...  more »

    The "zipline" in the lush what more forest? The team is relaxed and friendly, we are well framed, the truck ride is a little more (style rollercoaster in the mud and water without crushing of cows), thanks to the always smiling team. We were taken and brought back to the hotel, so we are guided and enjoy the landscape. The zipline are not very difficult, therefore a true ballad accessible to all.

    Visited Pura Aventura for their zip line experience with my husband and 7 year old (his first time trying it). They were EXCELLENT with my son, making him feel confident and comfortable on the lines (a guide goes tandem with him). The staff were funny, informative, and safety was a definite priority. It was a fun afternoon!

    5 stars for zip lining... 3 stars for mountain biking. Average 4 stars. The mountain bikes were aluminum Trek 3700 with cable discs brakes and wonky front suspension. The hubs were a tad wobbly. I guess for Costa Rica standards the bikes are top level? A good mix of double track and single track trails. I was expecting a longer ride with more advance trails but the bikes were maxed out for the terrain.

    The family had the most amazing time. Suggested we come here by Junquillal Eco Resort, the choice was fantastic.

    We'll run zip line experience high above the forest. Longest line is over 300m and high above the trees. Friendly and careful staff.

    My first time zipping. I'm 73. Diego was a great guide. Fun time.
