We have ziplined before but our 3 guides made this experience the best yet! We had Body, Alexi and Luis and they were so fun, so engaging and clearly experienced! We trusted them and felt safe the entire time. If you can request them, I would highly recommend this trio!

I’ve never zip lined before and didn’t know what to expect. This was a highlight of our trip! Great blend of fun and humor! The guides were entertaining while at the same time constantly checking our safety. I would definitely go again!

The absolute greatest crew with a happy atmosphere and great vibes totally worth the trip. Very very nice and money wise it was well worth it.

Our group of 10 had a blast! The zip lining was great. The guides were experienced and very funny! Highly recommend!

We had an amazing time with Ricky and the guys! It was truly an unforgettable experience.
