We are lucky in Dominical because we are not far from 2 Zip Lines, the only ones in the Southern region.
You can zip line only 10 minutes from Dominical and also at well known Osa Canopy Tour at 45 minutes away for a longer, more exciting higher Zip experience.
The closest is at Hacienda Baru is not the longest but it is good for children and those who may be a bit hesitant. The climb up the mountain is very long and steep but the guides are very friendly, personable, helpful and entertaining. Equipment seemed to be well maintained and the zip lines appeared very safe and sturdy.
At the further location, just south of Cortez at Osa Canopy Tour you have exciting multiple experiences of zip lines, repelling down trees, walking across hanging bridges and a Tarzan Swing!
Children of all ages would love this adventure, just make sure to wear shoes that attach to your feet, not flip flops!
Up north near Arenal, you have even more thrilling zip line circuits that’s located in both Monteverde and La Fortuna. Your tour will start riding an open-air gondola from the ground to the heights where you’ll be dropped off at an observation area for fantastic views. You start riding down on a zip line stretching across canyons and in between treetops. The exhilarating adventure of zip lining down the mountainside begins; ultimately returning you to the starting point at the main building. This is the most thrilling zip line in the country.
