In Paris, visitors gravitate toward the Eiffel Tower. In Tanzania, nature lovers take a safari while in Costa Rica, you embark on a canopy tour through the resplendent rainforest. Get ready for your adrenaline to soar to the treetops in the zip-lining tours of Guanacaste. Rich in natural beauty and wildlife, this northwest province of Costa Rica is home to a number of national parks and nature reserves that offer safe, qualified places to go zip-lining.

Strapped securely in a harness and away you'll go, flying high in the treetops via a series of interconnecting zip lines and platforms. Although Guanacaste isn't the most popular province in the country for zip-lining (check out Arenal / La Fortuna and Manuel Antonio), it is blessed with gorgeous beaches and verdant rainforest that attract its fair share of visitors who want to take flight. In this region, the top spots are Rincon de la Vieja National Park and Artola.

Rincon de la Vieja National Park

Surrounding two massive volcanoes, Rincon de la Vieja National Park is one of the most popular parks in this region. Visitors can find canopy tours that weave throughout the jungle and canyon made by the erosion of the Blanco River. Many vacationers rave about One Day Adventure Combo Guachipelin, a package deal that includes zip-lining, rappelling, rock climbing, a Tarzan swing and hanging bridges, all set over the canyon. Bring along hiking shoes, bathing suit and a change of clothes because this adventure lasts 10 hours.

Artola

Just south of Playa Ocotal you can find the Congo Trail Canopy Tour at Artola, home to a gorgeous tropical dry forest. Besides being easy to access, the canopy tour employs a team of friendly staff that will love to share the adventure with you and your family. Whether this is your first or 21st time, Congo Trail Canopy Tour sets visitors up with an authentic Costa Rican experience.

There is a brand-new adventure course which includes three high lines, a rappel and a Tarzan swing. It's no surprise that kids go nuts for this ride. You can expect to catch a glimpse of howler monkeys, iguanas and a variety of other wildlife.

Other Canopy Tours

Witch's Rock Canopy Tour is another hotspot for exploring the highlights of the jungle. Designed by professionals, the course boasts 23 platforms, four hanging bridges and 2,486-long cable. Rock Canopy Tour makes safety as a top priority, while providing an adventure-packed experience. In the case that zip-liners do not wish to complete the course, there are five exit routes to reach ground level. For the brave that carry on, you'll be immersed in tropical dry forest scenery as well as enjoying views of the Pacific ocean - not to mention a roaring waterfall, surreal sunsets and the sights and sounds of flora and fauna.
