Costa Rica is an adventure seekers playground. The country is world-renown for its zip-lining courses, and the Sky Adventures Canopy Tour at the Arenal Volcano did not disappoint.
This is not an activity you can NOT do with a baby or toddler, but kids 5 and older can participate, however, the young kids will be required to zip line with one of the guides.
My parents actually watched our baby so we could do this excursion. I would highly recommend trying it. The views can’t be beat! You feel like you’re flying high above the ground, buzzing through the trees, and reaching speeds of about 30-40 miles per hour. It’s exhilarating, but not as scary as you may think. We had young kids in our group as well as older people, and all of them loved it. The system they use is very safe and the guides are there to assist. The guides are also very friendly and funny, which makes the experience even better.
This particular zip line course is not at all strenuous and there are very few stairs to climb, so people of all activity and fitness levels can do this.
I would recommend clothes you don’t mind getting dirty, long pants and closed toed shoes.
