Visit our website each week to get a jump on the latest travel trends! For #TravelTuesday, we'll be featuring destinations from our new adventure collection that offer an enticing mix of adventurous itineraries, authentic local culture, and alluring locations off-the-beaten-path.
This week, we're excited to tell you more about Crocodile Bay Resort, where canopy zip lining tours inspire the ultimate sportsman’s bucket list adventure. Can you imagine a better way to see the most species-rich land-based ecosystem on Earth? The Osa Rainforest is a land of enchantment made up of brilliantly colored birds (the scarlet macaw and the chestnut-mandible toucan), rare mammals (sloth), four species of monkeys (howler, white-faced, spider, and squirrel), along with peccaries and wild cats.
Three different tours are currently available.
Miramar Canopy Zip Line
Canopy exploration has quickly become one of the fastest growing and most sought after tour frontiers of the rainforest. We are now proud to offer one of Costa Rica’s finest and safest canopy tours at Crocodile Bay Resort.
The zip-line path, a 17-acre tract of virgin forest, is called Miramar (or “ocean view”) referring to its commanding view of the Golfo Dulce and the surrounding rainforest. The platforms are strung along nearly a mile of rainforest canopy reaching heights of 138 feet.
While this tour is truly adventurous, state-of-the-art equipment is provided for utmost safety. The guides are highly trained and knowledgeable in not only the techniques and safety issues, but also on the natural wonders encountered on this exciting ride through this ceiling of the rainforest. As opposed to waterfall climbing and other types of high rope activities, the zip-line is relatively effortless, and therefore appro
priate for children as well as mature travelers. (Half Day)
Night Miramar Canopy Zip Line
At least half of all wildlife in the rainforest is active at night. Revel in the exotic sights and sounds of the jungle, with a healthy dose of adrenalin. Each of the seven platforms are illuminated to guide your approach. This version of the canopy zip-line is great for fishermen that don't want to miss being on the water during the day, but realize what exciting treasures await them on shore at night. (Leaves at 7:30pm, Returns by 10:30pm)
Osa Palmas Canopy Zip Line
The Osa Palmas Canopy Tour was added after the tremendously positive response received from clients who enjoyed the Miramar Zip Line tour. Perfect for all the adrenaline junkies out there, the Osa Palmas Tour has 8 platforms up to 120 feet tall that allow you to view primary forest, secondary forest, and renewable plantations of trees as well as open space. The combination of breath taking views, vibrant wild life, and hair-raising adrenaline rushes are sure to make this a trip to remember! (Half Day)
