Caribbean Canopy & Zipline
We will pick you up at your hotel and drive you in a microbus toward the farm (Carbon 1) located about 30 minutes from Puerto Viejo. The driver will drop you off at the first canopy platform. Behind two cables from the entrance of the farm, you will enjoy one of the most spectacular cables (285 meters length, 80 meters altitude). This cable will carry you directly to the heart of the forest where you will begin a short hike with one of our nature guides.
Throughout this tour you will become acquainted with the flora and the fauna of the primary forest and learn how indigenous communities utilize these plants. After the hike you will arrive at another platform to continue your canopy adventure. This tour includes 10 aerial platforms and 12 on land for a total of 2760 meters of cable. Once you climb the 7th platform, you will not touch the ground again until the final run which will give you a spectacular birdís eye view of the jungle.
On each platform our nature guide will continue to explain the curiosities which are found in this extraordinary environment. On the platform at the end of the aerial run, you will have the choice of making a descent by rappelling, by a tarzan swing, or by a zip line cable to the ground. For all those, who always wanted to see the world out of Superman's perspective once, we now offer the possibility to exit the Canopy Tour in this legendary position for an extra charge of $10.
After the last cable we begin the return to the entrance of the farm where we will have a snack and then the drive back to Puerto Viejo.
