Costa Rica

Arenal Canopy Tour

Exhilarating ziplines, 12 platforms, over 350 meters of cables and a lush primary rainforest make The Canopy Tour at Hotel Arenal Paraiso one of our favorites. This smaller, more intimate tour starts at the top of a valley and gradually goes along the valley side to the Arenal River below.  Other zipline tours emphasize going higher and faster, however, this tour is more than just an adrenaline rush--it allows you to see and appreciate the nature surrounding you. Enjoyable for adults and children alike, younger children can be accompanied by a guide. Along the way, you may see sloths, monkeys and a variety of mammals and birds. Along the tour, enjoy the view of two stunning waterfalls. Towards the end of the ride you will fly over the Arenal River to the last platform. At the very end of the tour, you can zip upside down for a short distance if you want. Transportation back to the resort is provided, along with refreshments. Canopy tours are a hallmark of Costa Rican vacations -- don't miss this fun, exciting rainforest experience.
