Witch's Rock Canopy Tour has 24 platforms, 11 cables from 100 to 450 meters in length, 3 suspension bridges, 3 climbing threes with pulley systems for safety, the tallest being 10 meters tall. We also have 5 exit routes in case a person does not want to complete the tour. The complete tour lasts approximately one and a half hours.

After signing a waiver and questionnaire regarding your physical condition, we will guide you to the equipment room, where you will be fitted with the safety gear, and will receive instructions about safety and how to do the canopy tour to avoid incidents.

During the green season (rainy season) you will get to see an amazing waterfall from the tour, as well as gorgeous views of the Pacific Ocean. Our guides will also give you a short review of the dry forest flora and fauna. After the tour we will take you back to the main building, where you can look through the pictures taken during your tour by our professional photographer, as well as visiting our souvenir store, or have a drink overlooking the forest from balcony of our coffee shop.

What a morning! We've been acting like monkeys today... My wife, sister-in-law and two nephews headed off to the Witch's Rock Canopy Tour site (15 minutes from our hotel on Peninsula Papagayo) after breakfast and spent the next few hours zipping from tree to tree, in some cases spanning almost 2,000 feet across deep ravines. What a rush. The boys were naturals, now talking about building a "real" zip line when they get home...
