Your breathtaking, adventure begins with a pickup from the pier and a relaxing drive through the wonderful Costa Rican countryside towards the Central Pacific Coast. The drive is approximately one hour and en route your guide will point out many sights of interest as you pass through rural farming communities, diverse fruit stands and coffee, sugar and citrus plantations.

Our destination is Carara Adventure Park, a privately owned reserve home to 80 acres of rainforest and stunning views of the Pacific Coast, Carara National Park and Puntarenas City. Get ready for the adventure you've been waiting for, as here we will all enjoy a state of the art zip line course. After a safety briefing, you will be transferred by a modified open truck to where the zip line begins. The course includes 12 cables, 15 platforms, and 3 hanging bridges. The longest cable is 1200 feet long and the highest point is approximately 100 feet.

After this great adventure flying around the tree tops, our tour will continue with a short drive to Tarcoles River, where a 60 minutes eco boat tour will allow you to enjoy the abundant wildlife of the area, including the huge crocodiles, multiple aquatic birds, scarlet macaws, howler monkeys and other amazing tropical species.
After these two great adventures, return to the pier.
