Zip-lines above the jungle’s canopy are in many ways synonymous with Costa Rica and it remains one of the country’s most popular and widespread activities, offering travelers a unique way of accessing beautiful and remote natural areas. They are so ubiquitous that no matter in what city you are, chances are there’s one within 10 miles! Don’t miss a chance to try (at least!) one of the many world-class zip-lines such as the Sky Trek in Arenal, with full views of the Arenal Volcano and surrounding areas; the Monteverde Extremo at a starting height of 1,400 feet; the Montezuma Waterfall Canopy Tour; and the Corcovado Canopy Tour. Aside from the guaranteed adrenaline boost these tours offer a wonderful education on ecology, botany, and reforestation practices.
