Has anyone done the zip line or canopy tour in Costa Rica or Jamaica? If so, how was it, or which one was better? (We did one in Belize and it was excellent).

Also, need to know which rain forest tour to take in Costa Rica. One goes to Veragua and one goes to Braulio Carrillo National Park. One is an hour away and the other takes two hours to get there; is it worth the four hour round trip there and back? Thanks!

We have taken the Tortuguero Canal excursion twice and loved it. We booked it on the ship.

One time when we took the Canal trip, our friends did the canopy tour. We saw many, many birds and also some monkeys. They didn't see any wildlife and were very disappointed.

I'm sure the zip line and canopy tour, would be fun in a different sort of way than the boat trip, but I wanted to tell you our experience.

We’ve been on canopy tours in Costa Rica and Montego Bay Jamaica. Had a great time at both and would recommend either one. Costa Rica seemed to have a few more platforms and longer runs but the one near Montego Bay was enjoyable as well. Costa Rica platforms were definitely higher than the Montego Bay platforms.
