Adventures, Tours & Activities
Located just off the Central Pacific Coast near Manuel Antonio National Park and Quepos, Costa Rica, El Santuario Canopy Adventure Tour brings thrill seekers one of the best attractions in Costa Rica. Professional, bi-lingual, certified guides lead you safely and securely over, under, and through the canopy on double anchored "touchless" lines. Their proprietary, dynamic braking system provides you an extra measure of safety as you traverse the lines without the need to worry about braking (or breaking!) yourself. El Santuario Canopy Adventure features Central America’s longest dual zip lines! Race your friends and family over the 4300 foot lines high above the Costa Rican rain forest, and as a bonus, enjoy a beautiful view of the Pacific Ocean on the horizon! Contact your Host to reserve with a $10 discount per person.

Well, you probably came to see this, right? You can either hike the park yourself without a guide, or hire a local company that provides transportation to and from your villa, tickets, snacks and a bilingual naturalist guide with telescope to really appreciate the wildlife and natural history of this unique park.

This pristine beach can only be accessed by a mildly challenging hike. Most times you will have the beach all for yourself. Ask your host for directions to get there. Go on low tide, so you can enjoy the tidal pools formed in the pre-columbian turtle traps
