Canopy Tour

Arenal Paraiso has its own on-site canopy tour. Zip through the treetops in safety harnesses as you traverse from treetop platform to another. This tour features gliding diagonally over the river below. This tour is a great value for the dollar and is one of the tour operators we recommend in the Arenal area. You can swing upside down at the end if you want to have some extra fun!
