I went to Costa Rica last December and had the most unbelievable time. As a multi-post series, I'll talk about how I traveled there as a single, millennial female and the crazy story of how I booked my flight 18-hours before my flight departed on a later blog post. Today though, I wanted to highlight my favorite adventure on the trip, zip lining and tubing in Arenal Park with Sky Adventures.
Sky Adventures is a adventure Costa Rican tour operator with locations in Arenal Volcano region, near La Fotuna, and in Monteverde. I had the pleasure of visiting the one in Arenal where I booked a package deal for Sky Trek, zip lining above and through the rain forest, and Sky River Drift, tubing down a river.
The rain was pretty steady the entire time and the river currents were stronger because of the rain storm. Luckily I only ate s*** once when I ran into the guide ahead of me who go stuck between boulders.
The ride was filled with twists and turns, with a few calm points, but overall it was exhilarating. The whole trip down the river took 45-mintues.
We exited the river and walked to an outdoor pavilion where they had towels and hot sugar cane drinks available. The guide told me that the boiled sugar cane drink was a popular Costa Rican drink. It hot drink was much appreciated, because I was cold from the river water.
Once we dried off, a shuttle took us back to the main building, where I gathered my things from the locker and took a shuttle back to my hotel in town.
If you're looking for a top notch adventure with top notch facilities and guides, Sky Adventures should be your next stop in Costa Rica.
