We drove ourselves (2 hours from Tamarindo). The zip line was great fun with wonderful guides (very safety conscious). We skipped the horse rides and slide. The mud bath was great fun, followed by a refreshing waterfall shower and soak in the hot springs. Delightful!

Your price may be different. Ours included transportation from our hotel. Check with your lodging for price. Or a local bus operator near your hotel. It took all day. But they serve a nice lunch.
