"This location offers a beautiful setting, excellent bird sightings and wildlife and is one of the few protected Mahogany preserves left in Costa Rica." – Rick Graham, Biologist of The ORIGINAL CANOPY TOUR

The ORIGINAL CANOPY TOUR at Mahogany Park is not only an amazing adventure travel experience but it is one of the most popular ecological tours in Costa Rica. Plus, with its close proximity to San Jose, Jaco Beach and Puntarenas (the West Coast Cruise ship port), The ORIGINAL CANOPY TOUR at Mahogany Park is the perfect location for the traveler who wants to see it all!

Located in a private reserve in a primary jungle of the tropical rainforest, this tour is one of our longest, consisting of 11 platforms from which to "swing", "soar", "fly" and descend and 9 horizontal traverses.

The tour starts on a hilltop where the first platform (or diving board as we call it) is located. From there you slide to the second platform in a giant Espavel tree which is down in a valley ad so doesn’t look that high until you look down! From here you will follow the stream and valley and wind up back on the ground after an invigorating ride. Special to our Mahogany Park location are wildlife sightings including white-faced capuchin and howler monkeys and many varieties of birds!

Please note that the minimum age for this in our Costa Rican locations is 5 years old. The cruise ships will not take anyone under the age of 12 years.

There is a weight restriction of about 265 pounds although the weight is more a function of body shape than weight itself.



TOUR DETAILS:
This tour lasts about 2 hours depending upon group size and needs. Tours begin at 8:00 am, 10:00 am, 12:00 pm and 2:30 pm, although we can accommodate other tour times as well.

This tour is located about an hour and a half outside of San Jose towards the west coast port of Puntarenas. It is about 45 minutes from the port in Puntarenas and about 45 minutes from Jaco Beach. We are about an hour and a half from Quepos.

This spot is perfectly located on the way from San Jose to (or to San Jose from) the beach areas of Jaco, Quepos/ Manuel Antonio and even the beaches of Guanacaste. It will allow you the opportunity to break up that long drive and take an exciting tour on the way to your final destination.
