As close as you can get to flying across the top of the jungle

Canopy Tours started back in the rainforests of Costa Rica in the 1970s and provided a way to study the rich canopy biodiversity. While Canopy Tours today offer a little more thrill and excitement than that, people should try to constantly teach, protect, and learn more about nature and our surroundings while enjoying this amazing activity.

But What is a Zipline / Canopy tour?

A zipline tour in Puerto Vallarta is being as close as you can get to flying across the top of the jungle. Participants swear a harness with a carabiner that is attached to a wheel on a cable strung between trees. You push-off from a platform on one tree and zip along the cable to a platform on another tree. You can be anywhere from 20 – to 80-feet off the ground and, literally, flying between the trees at a height in jungles where birds and monkeys hang out on the branches.

The experience will include some “how to” information plus a safety briefing. You’ll learn how to put on the harness, latch on to the cable and how to break if you want to slow down while zipping on a cable. After you learn the basics and watch a demonstration, you may get a chance to practice once or twice on a short zipline that is just a few feet off the ground.

Who really enjoys zipline tours?

This experience can be enjoyed by entire families. But before you book, ask about the number of ziplines and the heights at which they are strung to make sure you are comfortable with the heights for both you and your children. Also, make sure of the age, weight and height limits.

This is your opportunity to fly through the jungle in Puerto Vallarta, are you going to let it go?

There are many ziplines in the area, contact us to find the one that best suits your family needs.
