Just when you thought you had arrived in a place where no tourist had gone before... there’s a flag-waving, adrenaline-rushing, scream-inducing adventure park, catering to busloads of day-trippers from the coast. It offers purportedly one of the biggest canopy tours in the country, with 25 cables and 11 waterfalls (some dip-worthy). There’s also a rope obstacle course through the trees.

The place is definitely fun, but the big groups may be a detractor. If you don’t have your own wheels, the adventure park can bus you in from Puntarenas, Jacó, the northern Península de Nicoya, or even San José. It's located on the grounds of the Hotel Vista Golfo, about 7km north of Miramar, in Tajo Alto.
