Well rafting in rain forest and sleeping in a hut just weren’t enough for us to maximize our Costa Rican fun. What other nice relaxing things can we do…. oh I don’t know…. what to do…what to do. How about being suspended 80+ feet in the air on a cable and sliding between trees faster than you can ride a bike? Good idea!
Side note.. it is probably not a good idea for the adventure guides to tell a story about how one of the workers cut three of his fingers off due to his hand being in the wrong position before your turn… I’m just saying…You know for marketing purposes you probably want to save that story to the end. Make a mental note.
After eating we went to the hut and changed for zip lining. Hat check – check. Gloves – check . Weird crotch harness thingy – check. One other couple from Boston went with us. The hubby said one of the funniest lines I have ever heard while adventuring “Oh God do I have to go on that?!? I think my balls just went back into my body.”
We were dressed and ready to go!
After we we made it to the top of the hill, the guides explained to us how the zip lining would work. Looks easy enough. The course consisted of about 12 zip lines high in the tree tops and ended with a repel back to the ground.
It started to rain just a bit but it was a welcome development — for me at least.
We also so quite a few bullet ants. With my very extensive research of the rain forest (watching something on Discovery Channel because I couldn’t find the remote) I knew to stay away from those bad boys.
