  • Diego and his team were amazing with our group of mixed ages…they worked overtime without complaints, finding a lost phone that fell from the second to last zip line. We can’t say enough about their professionalism, attention to safety and friendliness! Pura vida…absolutely top notch and a must do in Tamarindo/Costa Rica!
  • My husband and I enjoyed our first time zip lining experience at Pura Aventura. The staff was nice, friendly, and very patient. At one point I thought I made a bad decision for my honey and myself. But after zooming through the jungle on that first, the highest, cable I was feeling it. My honey said I was feeling like a daredevil. This was a couple years ago. I apologize that this review is so late and that I am just getting around to writing a review. However, we often share how great Pura Aventura is with all who inquire and who visit Costa Rica. My honey is a Facebook junkie and posted the photos. So we were definitely advertising how much fun we had. (Hopefully, this makes up for the delayed review) And a shout out to Diego who showed us much love. We have not forgotten how much fun we had and never will.
