The staff was very informative. There was a woman who was afraid of heights and they were very comforting to her. They frequently checked in to see how we were doing and offered tips on how to obtain the best photographs and videos. I am a bit on the heavy side and this never appeared to be an issue for...

Got to experience the Arenal volcano via horseback. Wonderful vistas. Great service. Paloma was the first horse I had ridden on since I had a total hip replacement. I love to ride and she made my experience everything I had hoped and more! Thanks so much Diago!

We stayed at Tabacon and the company picked us up at our hotel. The horseback ride guide was terrific and we learned a lot about the volcano and the culture. Followed by zip lining through the rain forest. It was very safe and exciting. I'm not a fan of heights but they made it very comfortable. The Tarzan swing was... More

The day before, we had done white water rafting with ARC (arenal rafting company) and this canopy tour was recommended. It was my group of 5 and I's first time zipling (or "canopying" as it is called here). We had 3 canopy guides, Alex, Miguel, and one more (forgot his name). They all did a great job showing us ziplining... More

The visit was with a college service group and some chose to go horseback riding and others picked zip-lining. It was a first time experience for many of us and the guides were very professional, funny, and attentive to each persons needs. For myself, it was my first time zip-lining and I felt at ease about making the decision. It... More

Christian was our guide and did a tremendous job of making everyone relax and enjoy the ride! The trip through the trees was simply astounding and one I will never forget! It was coupled with a white water rafting in the afternoon led by Roque and his son which was tremendous. Just the right mix of a little bit challenging... More

I chose the combo zip line and horseback riding with Athica Canopy in Arenal. The zip line was fabulous and so funny. I used 9 lines to get through the tropical rainforest. I was so lucky to to have the opportunity to see monkeys and toucans. Thank to the wonderful guide with a sharp eye. In the end, the team... More

The team at Athica were first rate. Christian & Diego did a great job teaching us how to zip line and making sure we were safe. The scenery was spectacular. We saw a pair of toucans trying to make a nest right next to one of the towers we were standing on. We also saw several Howler Monkeys up close... More

My family of 2 adults and 2 kids (ages 10 and 12) tried zip lining for the first time here. The guides were great. They shared interesting information about the rain forest, trees and plants as well as ensuring a fun and safe experience. Would highly recommend!
