Amazing Costa Rica Zip Line Tour at Adventure Park.
Get ready for an amazing adventure. With the assistance of the professional Adventure Park guides, you are going to experience one of the greatest thrills of your visit to this Costa Rica zip-line tour in Puntarenas. You will feel your adrenaline soar as you zoom across 25 zip line platforms over 11 waterfalls, two rappelling, and one suspended bridge. And you will also get an opportunity to swim in one of the waterfalls natural pools during this exciting tour.
The unique safe-braking system, invented and developed at the Adventure Park for your zip-line tour, provides you with a highly secure ride with extreme comfort at the same time. This allows you to get a bird’s eye view of the Gulf of Nicoya and the Costa Rica mountains during your adventure!
This has been our favorite zip-line tour. After your day of thrills through the jungle and rainforest, they also serve a very nice Costa Rican typical lunch or dinner (depending on the time of your tour). This is a spectacular outing, but getting there by car is a challenge. Even with a GPS in your car it is not an easy place to find Adventure Park – Puntarenas. See their website below for detailed directions and phone help. They also will offer to pick you up at a Jaco hotel and other places if you do not choose to drive there…which is a great idea! They also offer a fee-based service to have a driver pick you up at your location, if you have a large enough group.
Costa Rica’s “Must-See” Attraction – LaPaz Waterfall Gardens.
LaPaz Waterfall Gardens and Peace Lodge is a “must-see” attraction when you are in the Central Valley of Costa Rica! This day trip is an excellent easy one-day outing. The drive to the LaPaz Waterfall Gardens takes you on narrow roads that wind through a landscape of fertile coffee plantations, farms and dark forests. The original attraction here consists of a series of trails through primary and secondary lush tropical rainforests where there are five beautiful waterfalls alongside the La Paz River. In addition to the trails, there is an orchid garden, a hummingbird garden, and a huge Butterfly Observatory garden.
Before or after you have walked the trails at the LaPaz Waterfall Gardens, you want to make sure you stop by the Butterfly Observatory and hummingbird gardens. A visit to the Butterfly Observatory at the LaPaz Waterfall Gardens is sure to bring smiles. Here you will have the feeling as if you are part of nature without feeling that you are intruders. Since the LaPaz Waterfall Gardens are located in the rainforest, visitors are able to enjoy their interaction with the butterflies, even when the weather is not cooperating. On-site guides will walk you through the observatory, pointing out eggs, caterpillars and the camouflaged chrysalises.
Also on the property are a large variety of birds, monkeys, sloths, snakes, frogs and jaguars. Our favorite area is the Bird Aviary because you can get up-close photos of many birds…and if you choose you can get your photo taken with a Toucan perched on your arm. At LaPaz Waterfall Gardens, you are guaranteed to see all that and more. Many of our guests say this has been their favorite attraction…and you can easily spend a whole day here. They do have a restaurant that serves a large buffet with quite a varied menu to please just about everyone. Open daily 8 am – 5 pm.
