Zip Line in Monteverde
Experience an adrenaline-pumping zipline in the very country where the activity was invented! At 100% Aventura Adventure Park, you'll start by ascending hundreds of feet above the jungle canopy via a network of trails and suspension bridges. The exotic flora and fauna of the region will be on full display, and your specialized guides will point out the most interesting specimens and residents of the forest's remarkable ecosystem.
Upon reaching the end of the line, the adventure of whizzing down the mountain begins. You'll connect to a zip line cable that stretches over the treetops and across canyons, ultimately returning you to the starting point. Monteverde's zip line excursions are regarded as the most thrilling in the country.
After a few shorter cables, you'll reach the longest zip line cable in Latin America, measuring 5,216 feet (1,590 m). This extensive cable allows you to really enjoy the view as you fly above rolling hills and lush rainforests.
If you opt to try the zip lines in the superman position, you'll be suspended from your back as you soar above the cloud forest! And if you need even more adventure, try the "Tarzan Swing," a free-fall, Bungie-jump-like experience that swings to 148 feet (45 m). Enjoy this day filled with exciting and fun adventures!
