There are currently two canopy tours in the Montezuma area. One in Montezuma, which has the advantage of including a trip to the third pool of Montezuma Falls, and the Malpais canopy tour, which is longer and faster.

Both are great in their own way, but the Montezuma one is probably more popular because it includes the waterfall, so many tourists, even on the Santa Teresa / Malpais side of the peninsula, will head to Montezuma to be able to do these two popular activities together.

The canopy tour is a very popular activity here, and in Costa Rica in general, and a large percentage of travelers to the area do it at least once. Groups from Tambor’s large Barcelo resort also typically come to Montezuma for this.
