I only had one free day in Costa Rica and chose to do this Tour. It was a great combination of activities! The bus ride provided scenic views, boat ride had you searching for wildlife, and the zipline was a fun adventure. The food was good. We didn’t horseback ride but that’s ok. The personnel were awesome – especially the zipline guys! Plus, I felt safe the entire time even though I’m afraid of heights.
