Our first 'activity' and this did not disappoint. We had a great time and would recommend doing this activity again. There is some streneous hiking involved and some upper body stregth is required if you don't 'zip' fast enough by you braking early. The experience and scenic views are amazing, even after the zip lining is over, there is a river nearby full of crocs. We walked over and took some pictures after the excursions before heading back to the ship. My only complaint would be the equipment, it reeks of sweat and the gloves were very worm/wet/dirty. I would advise you to bring a baseball cap to protect yourself from the smelly helmets and potentially your own zip lining gloves if you don't want to use their worm gloves. Not listed on the tour, but there is a great flea market directly off the port, got some great soveniers and we walked to a local grocery store to buy cheap costa rica coffee to take home.

Terrific. Abel Vargas (abelvargasm@hotmail.com) was the best tour guide. The zip-lining in the jungle was awesome.

Zipping was fun. All the guides were patient with our group, which varied in age and ability. a photo of me zipping cost $20. Longest line was 1028 ft. Very safe, folks. Perspired buckets, but they had water bottles for you along the way. We then had a nice local foods lunch, then a "zoo tour" with our knowledgeable guides all of which have degrees in bio,wildlife conservation, etc. Very eco-friendly place. Jonathan, our zipping guide, seemed like the man who was respected highly by all the other guides.
