Canopy tours consist of a series of steel cables strung between a series of treetop platforms. This fun tourist activity has a pratical origin; in remote areas of Costa Rica ziplines are used to cross rivers to avoid the cost of bridge construction.
The modern version for tourists is safer than the old school transporation zip lines. In a harness with a safety line you glide through the rainforest canopy from platform to platform. Enjoy amazing views and a tree top view of the jungle. Take your choice of six canopy tours, from mild to wild, that take you up to 1,000 feet down the mountains racing along on zip lines.
