This place was by far my favorite. They don't necessarily have the highest and longest zips but they do offer the... More

I highly recommend visiting Vandara. We came on a tour and did pretty much everything, horseback riding, zip lining, water slide, native food exhibit, hot spring and mud bath. The staff there was excellent, especially on the zip lines. The zip lines there are no joke. The staff did a great job of keeping everyone safe and moving. They even... More

We booked through a tour operator and spent most of our day at Vandara. We were greeted with a cantaloupe juice drink (never had that before and it was really good) and asked to make a lunch selection for later (pork, tilapia, chicken, beef or pasta). Then we started our activities. Here's a list with thoughts on each. 1. Horseback... More

Our family visited Costa Rica for my daughters graduation. She had plenty of things she wanted to check off her bucket list .... hiking to a beautiful waterfall, horseback riding, zip lining in the rain forest, a waterslide through the jungle, and sipping a pina colada while relaxing in hot springs. We were also fed a yummy organic lunch. It... More
