Canopy adventure is a Costa Rican family owned business. The farm has 1400 acres and 700 of them are set aside for conservation purposes. This eco tourism project is under a program that protects the cloud forest and sells oxygen to the world. The other half of the property is a western cider plantation utilized under very strict process that is environmentally friendly.
We are only 30 minutes away from the international airport and 45 minutes from our nation’s capital (San Jose). We are located in San Jose de la Montaña which is at the foot of the Barva Volcano.
Our canopy tour has 13 platforms, and 11 of these are suspended around gigantic oak trees, typical to old growth jungles. The cables used in the zip lining activity are galvanized stainless steel. The length of these go anywhere from 60 to 600 feet, and most of them are suspended on the canopy and go over beautiful waterfalls. Our tour is focused on natural conservation and the safety of our clients. We have several hiking trails, some on the ground and others are elevated. Here our guides will show you all about our flora and fauna.
For those that want to keep their feet on the ground and don’t mind a nice long walk, we have trekking activities. Naturalist guides will take you on a 2 and a half hour hike through our western cider plantations and primary forests. Some of the things will be seeing are natural spring waters, waterfalls, gigantic old trees like the “higueron” (ficus family) and jaw dropping views of the Pacific Ocean and central valley. There is an option where canopy and trekking can be combined for a full day of adrenalin and overwhelming beauty.
Due to our close by location to the city and easy access, we have both half a day and full day tours.
We offer our clients a snack after the tour with freshly brewed Costa Rican coffee, or other drinks of your choice. If you reserve it in advance you may also have a typical Costa Rican lunch, cooked on a wooden stove so you can also experience exactly what we “ticos” in “pura vida” land eat.
