Aerial Tram & Zip line Adventure (PASS3411). Once we departed the trams high in the canopy of the forest, we were ready to begin the 10 platform zip lining experience. IT SHOULD BE NOTED HERE that from the moment we arrived at the part, THE EMPLOYEES TOOK OUR SAFETY AND ENJOYMENT VERY SERIOUSLY. In time we could see in their faces the enjoyment they were receiving from our safe experience and adventure of a lifetime. After the first 7 runs there was a pause for a complementary bottle of water to hydrate as we walked quite a downhill distance before we did the final three runs. (We had worn clothing and sneakers we could discard, having read that everything would be muddy beyond reuse. This being February, and their dry season, we just came back wearing our pride and a lot of sweat.) After completing the 10 run, we were again met by our guide who led us on a 45 minute narrated nature walk. Then it was time for a very tasty Costa Rican buffet lunch and relaxation for close to an hour before our 1 1/2 hour narrated return to Puntarenas.

Went to the Vista Los Suenos zipline park (near resort of same name). Very professional, charming guides. Fourteen heart-pounding platforms. Not a good way to see the rain forest, of course, but fun in a stupid way. Why can't one just take a hike? Why is it necessary to turn this beautiful country into a low-rent amusement park?

Guides were fluent in English. Highly safety conscious. Excellent photographers. Well planned; well excuted; one of the most exciting highlights. This is my first Zip line and it was wonderful.

Our first 'activity' and this did not disappoint. We had a great time and would recommend doing this activity again. There is some streneous hiking involved and some upper body stregth is required if you don't 'zip' fast enough by you braking early. The experience and scenic views are amazing, even after the zip lining is over, there is a river nearby full of crocs. We walked over and took some pictures after the excursions before heading back to the ship. My only complaint would be the equipment, it reeks of sweat and the gloves were very worm/wet/dirty. I would advise you to bring a baseball cap to protect yourself from the smelly helmets and potentially your own zip lining gloves if you don't want to use their worm gloves. Not listed on the tour, but there is a great flea market directly off the port, got some great soveniers and we walked to a local grocery store to buy cheap costa rica coffee to take home.

Terrific. Abel Vargas (abelvargasm@hotmail.com) was the best tour guide. The zip-lining in the jungle was awesome.

Zipping was fun. All the guides were patient with our group, which varied in age and ability. a photo of me zipping cost $20. Longest line was 1028 ft. Very safe, folks. Perspired buckets, but they had water bottles for you along the way. We then had a nice local foods lunch, then a "zoo tour" with our knowledgeable guides all of which have degrees in bio,wildlife conservation, etc. Very eco-friendly place. Jonathan, our zipping guide, seemed like the man who was respected highly by all the other guides.
