A no-brained, must do, adrenaline-rush of an adventure. The 11 zip lines are fantastic (particularly the 2-person lines and the 2 extra-long lines), the scenery and setting are beautiful and, above all, the guides are great. All the guides are safety-conscious, great with the kids,...More

This was the coolest day of our trip. Zip lines and ATVs through the jungle with a side trip to one of the local towns. I felt like we were family to them, they were so kind.

They should be fine as long as they like adventure and are not afraid of heights. Some of the zip lines are very high and fast.
