Unquestionably, the best zip-lining tour in Costa Rica is located at Monteverde (on the Northern border of Puntarenas). It has one cable that is higher than any other in Costa Rica. It has another cable that is longer than any other in Costa Rica. However, I believe that the best canopy tour is right here in Drake Bay simply because we have the best jungle canopy in the country.
The Corcovado Canopy Tour is located in a primary jungle property that shares a border with the national park. It is owned and operated by a local Drake Bay family and was established in March 2007. Although the experience of zipping high above the jungle in Monteverde is worth having, I personally prefer the canopy tour. The activity is great for kids as this is not an extreme sport. It’s nothing like the adrenaline rush of bungee jumping or sky diving. These tours are so safe that fears almost always melt away after just 2 cable rides.
Although the canopy tour in Drake Bay has a few cables that reach dizzying heights; you’ll most commonly be traveling lower down inside the canopy. The experience can be described as “flying through the jungle”.
Another striking quality of selecting this activity is the ability to couple it with another tour in the same day. There is simply no chance of doing everything that Drake Bay has to offer- but I encourage visitors to take advantage of the time that they do have. There are a few options here when it comes to tours that take up less than half a day. These are: The Jungle Night Hike, Canopy Tour
and The Biolumenesent Plankton Swim. If you are an energetic person and think that after a day Corcovado National Park or Isla del Caño you will be ready for more, these light activities are all memorable experiences.
