Tarzan Ziplines Swing and Blue River Adventure at Rincon de la Vieja from Samara


Be ready for pickup at your Sámara hotel between 7 a.m. and 8 a.m on your chosen tour date. Be sure to bring comfortable clothing, a swimsuit, insect repellent, sunscreen, a towel, and comfortable walking shoes. Meet your guide and group, then climb in to a comfortable tour vehicle and take off for the Blue River Resort, arriving around 10 a.m.  You'll be met with a welcome cocktail, then head for the changing rooms and lockers to get ready for your zip line adventure. Back in the vehicle, make the short trip to the Blue River Canopy Park. Listen to a safety briefing and orientation before getting fitted for your helmet and harness. Then, clip in and zoom down nine ziplines through the canopy of the northern Costa Rican rain forest. Hop on the Tarzan swing to disembark, then follow your guide on a forest hike to see wildlife, exotic plants, waterfalls, and a volcanic river.  Return to the resort around 12:30 p.m., where you will dig in to a provided lunch before starting your afternoon of free time. Walk through the lush tropical gardens, swim and soak in the five pools, check out the hot mineral springs, or visit the butterfly garden to meet the resident donkeys and miniature horses. Opt to sign up for a treatment at the spa (additional cost) before departing back to your hotel around 4 p.m.  Please note: Minimum numbers apply. There is a possibility of cancellation after confirmation if there are not enough passengers to meet requirements. In the event of this occurring, you will be offered an alternative or full refund.
