What people are saying about Jaco

Overall rating

4.8 / 5

based on 4 reviews

It was a great experience and everyone was kind and professional. The only reason I don't give a 5 star is because one of the guys (Robert) who work on the zip line disrespected a lady by saying things to her. That conduct should not be tolerated becauwe it can cause a fatality while on the stations. I give it a 4 not to oenalize the grewt work of the rest of the crew

This was an incredible experience. The guides were great — very reassuring and professional and we felt like we were in good hands the entire time. That being said, this experience is definitely not for those with a fear of heights or who don’t trust themselves physically.

The guides are friendly and speak both English and Spanish very well. Everyone is patient and have great attitudes. I recommend this experience to anyone who likes beautiful natural views and has an adventurous spirit.
