Costa Rica is a beautiful rainforested country that has so much to offer. Many travelers know that to truly experience all that is Costa Rica, it’s best to immerse yourself in its wonders. That’s precisely why ziplining and canopy tours are at the top of many savvy travelers to-do lists, and if it’s not on yours, you’re going to want to make sure you save a spot for it! 

A prevalent question that arises when people are considering ziplining and canopy tours in Costa Rica is which one is the better option of the two. The answer to the question is actually quite simple and should help clear the confusion. Both are equally great options because both terms denote the exact same thing – there really is no difference between the two! If we want to get technical, ziplining is the actual activity you partake in (gliding through a beautiful rainforest suspended by a cable). In contrast, a canopy tour refers to the excursion itself. However, the distinction in itself is not important when deciding where to book your tour because the terms are often used interchangeably by many tour companies. 

Now that you know the difference between the two, or lack thereof, deciding where to go to experience the astonishing views is almost as easy as it was to grasp the two concepts. Jaco is one of many fantastic destinations in Costa Rica and is a ziplining hot spot. The booming beach town boasts an abundance of nature and is an easy choice for vacationers because of all the beauty it has to offer. In booking a ziplining trip with AXR Jaco, you can rest assured you’ll be able to really experience some of the best that Jaco provides. A Jaco Canopy tour allows you to experience Costa Rica from a whole new perspective – right from the treetops! Enjoy a fun and adrenaline-filled ride surrounded by lush forests that offer enchanting sights. As you glide amongst nature, take in breathtaking views of the mountainside and immerse yourself in the rainforest. It’s common to spot some of the country’s stunning animals such as toucans, scarlet macaws and white-faced monkeys, to name a few. 

Ziplining is a thrilling experience for all that decide to participate. However, before you take off, you should ensure you’re comfortable with heights because your experience will primarily be from up high! If you feel like the excursion is a little daunting, you can always opt for a relaxing Tortuga Island tour. But, if you can get past the heights, you absolutely won’t regret it! Ziplining tours are extremely popular in Costa Rica and are considered one of the safest activities you can partake in. At AXR Jaco, we design our tour with safety as a top priority, utilizing the latest safety systems and IUAA certified equipment. Our well trained and trilingual staff will help to make sure your experience is an amazing one, no matter your age! Your only concern about your zipline experience should be where to look next!
