A few days ago I did my first ever zip line! And it was definitely just as much fun as I expected. Our tour included 12 lines. The highest was 350 feet off the ground, the longest was 1200 feet long and went across a river and the fastest was 40 mph. Although we are travelling here on a shoestring budget, the canopy tour was definitely worth the bucks. It was about $40, so really not bad for what you get. It was really strange to be flying along and just be able to look down into the jungle. Sometimes it seemed like I was going to hit my head on the branches above or smash my leg into one. Luckily, I didn’t. My favorite part of this favorite adventure was the second-to-last line. The longest line. It started to rain right before we got to this line. So, even though it took less than a minute, I was soaked by the end. I went flying over a river where locals were swimming and looking up at me. If you ever have the chance to tether yourself to a cable and go flying over the jungle, do it!
