Imagine flying between rainforest trails while gaining incredible views of the surroundings. From rivers, waterfalls, or majestic mountains to a panorama featuring blue tones from a nearby beach or coast. Going for a zip line tour is an experience full of emotions, adrenaline, and beauty.
A zipline is defined as a cable that is suspended above an incline to which a pulley and harness are attached for a rider. The incline of a zip line allows the rider to be pulled by gravity along the line. History demonstrates that originally the zip line actually had multiple purposes, amongst them transportation from one place to another and to send and receive goods.
Today, ziplines are mainly used for recreation at children’s adventure parks and canopy tours. Many eco-tours promote the zip line tour, where guests can explore the beauty of the local scenery from above without leaving a big carbon footprint in the area.
Free your body, fly from platform to platform while enjoying the fresh air.
What should you bring on a zip line tour? For full enjoyment you must have a lot of desire to experience adventure. Also remember that you are in the Caribbean so don’t forget your insect repellent. It is recommended to take sunscreen, comfortable shoes, sportswear that you don’t mind getting wet and of course … a camera!
