We grabbed a taxi from Mismaloya Beach and paid him 300 pesos to take us up to El Eden for a quick stop and photo op. Our driver spoke a little bit of english and we had a great time chatting on the drive up. He showed us where to go and waited on us. El Eden is definitely a... More

Had a GREAT time today with Tanya and Julio at Predator Set zipline. They gave excellent instruction and I felt completely safe the whole time. Even got to go upside-down at one point! Tanya did a great job bonding with my mom, and I had fun hiking and joking with Julio... great memories from the canopy. Lunch in the restaurant... More

An open bus ride up the mountain offers great views of the local area and jungle. We were really looking forward to the zipline part of this trip,but an unexplained event cut our adventure short. Without explanation about 10 in our group were redirected past the remaining zipline which really changed the mood for the rest of our excursion. The... More

The zip lines, rope swing and overall setting was great. The open air bus ride up is interesting as well.

We haven't seen the Predator movie so didn't fully appreciate some of the elements here. We also didn't eat at the restaurant though some we were with said it was very good. But they have a great swimming hole and some nice zip line rides. It's a fairly long, slow ride up the mountain to get to the place but... More

Up and into the mountains, winding, rough road but so fun and worth it when greeted by the hospitable owner and dipped into the welcomed clean, cool waters.

This is my 1st time to Mexico and my girlfriend and I had a blast. It's a long bumpy ride but you're literally going to a mountain in the middle of the jungle so what do you expect. The zip line were awesome. It was safe and scary at the same time. The workers there were very friendly and funny... More

About 4 km past the zoo is the Predator Experience or El Eden. It is where the film was shot and after a lengthy ride up the absolute most challenging road one can imagine filled with ruts etc. one arrives at the location. For kids it is a real treat. Swim and dive into the waterfalls and natural river pools,... More

No one told me we had to CLIMB our way to the top! I thought we could drive or take a bus to the top and zip line to the bottom---NOT SO!!! I only made it through 4 zip lines and had to call it a day. There are others places one can enjoy so much more. Do your homework... More
