If you are staying in any of the beach resorts near Tamarindo, one of the must do activities in Costa Rica is a visit to Hacienda Norma, a 150 year old working horse and cattle ranch on over 1400 acres of primary and secondary forest that could be considered the mecca of ecotourism in Guanacaste. Rivers, streams and waterfalls hidden throughout the ranch provide safe haven for Costa Rica´s wildlife, but even better is that it is the perfect setting for the Pura Aventura Canopy tour, mountain biking trails, and some of the most scenic pastures and trails for horseback riding in Costa Rica.
For those looking for a little adrenaline pumping adventure, the aptly named Pura Aventura canopy tour in Tamarindo allows you to experience the beauty of the Guanacaste landscape with a birds-eye view! Get your adrenaline fix as you fly like a bird through the canopy between the 11 zip lines, navigate our suspension bridge, and even a rappel....awesome!
Leaving our welcome center, which is a nearly 80 year old Costa Rican home that has been remodeled and restored, we head up through the fields and pastures where the horses and cattle graze to our first platform 700 feet above sea level!! We will give you a moment to take in the amazing scenery and take a photo or 2 before we begin our decent on our first of 11 ziplines. The Pura Aventura Canopy tour will take you from treetop to treetop in Costa Rica´s forest where you may have the opportunity to spot monkeys, iguanas, and other local inhabitants with the help of our friendly bilingual canopy guides. But this is not your grandfather´s nature hike, Pura Aventura´s longest zipline is 1850 feet long and over 400 feet off the ground!!!! Pura Aventura is Pura Vida!
