Participate in two of our favorite activities while in port: take a relaxing cruise through the eco-reserve of the Tortuguero Canals and zip line through the rain forest canopy.

Known as Costa Rica's Amazon because of its surrounding rain forest, the Tortuguero Canal region is rich with exotic flora and fauna.

Board your covered boat for a leisurely cruise through the jungle canals. As you float down the river, your guide will introduce you to the rain forest eco-system and point out sights of interest. Keep an eye out for wildlife, including howler monkeys, sloths, toucans, bats, aquatic birds, iguanas, and crocodiles!

Next, enjoy the thrilling experience of crossing the jungle like a monkey! After receiving your equipment and a safety briefing, your treetop adventure begins. You will cross the forest from tree to tree with first-class equipment and a double cable system for added security. If you want an adrenaline rush, then this is the tour for you! Glide through the treetops with this exhilarating adventure: 9 cables and 12 platforms stretched across the length of the rain forest. The longest cable is 885 ft. long and you will experience heights up to 265 ft. Here you can enjoy the gripping thrill of the wind in your face as you soar through the rain forest witnessing some of the most spectacular views.

The platforms are arranged at different heights and levels of excitement. Up to platform 5, all cables are of similar length. However, after this platform, the cables become even more thrilling. Here those who would like to give up and return to the lodge may do so. This opportunity is also offered at platform 7. For those of you who enjoy the thrill, its go, go, go, all the way to platform 12.

Catch glimpses of the Caribbean Ocean, the Banano River, and, of course, the rain forest.

NOTE: If you have a group and some people do not want to experience the zip line tour, they can accompany you and experience the rain forest nature walk while you enjoy the treetop canopy adventure. The group will travel together and you will split up for the activities.
