Welcome to Pura Aventura A Canopy and Horseback Riding Adventure.
We are Guanacaste's premier adventure location.
With our office based in Playa Tamarindo, our shuttles leave three times per day for a short 15 miles drive to our ranch, located just 10 minutes away from Playa Negra and Playa Junquillal and 20 from the prestigious Hotel Marriott in Hacienda Pinilla.
We are located on Hacienda La Norma, a 150 year old Costa Rican horse and cattle ranch with over 1400 acres of natural resources. The hacienda encompasses nearly 800 acres of primary forest (old wood), 250 acres of secondary forest (new wood), 350 acres of tree-lined pastures, six rivers, multiple natural springs and two sets of waterfalls.
At Hacienda La Norma we are developing ecological tourism while preserving the natural values of life on a Costa Rican ranch. You will find yourself over-looking the tranquil pastures and raising your eyes to colorful rolling hills and dense mountain forests.
Imagine leaving our welcome center (a remodeled 80 year old Costa Rican home) on horseback, riding through the beautiful pastures, crossing two rivers before ascending to the first platform of Canopy Pura Aventura.
Once on the canopy you will experience the magnificent views of our peaceful farm as well as spectacular views of the Pacific Ocean. As you are enjoying your tour, you are likely to observe many of our diverse wildlife. Monkeys and birds are plentiful but deer and puma also share this natural habitat.
Safety is our main focus. Our construction is top quality. We have double cables and double pulleys. Our equipment is top of the line and our guides are experienced and knowledgeable.
Our goal is to create treasured memories that will last a lifetime!Safety 1st, service is our pleasure!"
