Fancy swinging through the cloud forest in Costa Rica? Monteverde is home to some of the best canopy tours in Central America and the zip lines are insane!

Aventura is a great company to go with as it boasts 12 cables, a gigantic Tarzan swing, rope bridges and the spectacular Superman Cable – where you actually feel like you’re flying! And the best part? You’re 260ft in the air.

A two-hour zip-lining tour, including equipment,  hostel pickup and a team of guides, costs just $40 (less with a student card). Staff here are friendly, professional and good fun! Email: to reserve your spot.

What to wear

The cloud forest is usually wet and muddy so wear hiking boots/trainers, thick socks, a waterproof coat and long trousers. You can take your camera but make sure it’s secure or give it to one of the guides.
