Canopy Carara Adventure Park
The lush rainforest feeling will be part of your scenic one-hour drive from the pier to a private reserve. Along the way, your guide will point out mango, sugar and citrus plantations and farming communities. Your expectations of the Costa Rican rainforest will be fulfilled as you learn about the advances that farmers have made in delivering fresh produce and no doubt appreciate that when you return home to your local food stores.
Upon your arrival to the reserve, you can freshen up and explore before you begin your treetop journey. In the famous Vista los sueños canopy you will be escorted to a series of zip lines that have been designed to cause no harm to the environment while still providing extreme fun and excellent views of the forest from Jaco.
You'll feel like Tarzan (or Jane!) as you zip through Costa Rica's canopy. The adventure starts on a 15-minute ride aboard our specially designed tractor. Once we reach the top of the mountain, our bilingual guides will explain -step by step- all the safety procedures you must follow to enjoy your Zip Line adventure, we then descend to the bottom via a series of zip lines, including 12 platforms and 10 cables with a total cable distance of 3.5 kilometers, among them longest cable in the area (2400 ft.)
