Picture lush valleys, green as far as the eye can see. Trees all around you so thick that you can feel the cool dampness radiate from the branches and leaves, welcome relief from the hot, humid Costa Rican days.
You're atop a platform hundreds of feet above the earth. Contained by a harness, attached to a metal wire. A worker is holding you back, waiting for the signal from the other side.
Then he releases, and you're catapulted across to the other side. Flying through the air, frightened, exhilarated, and giddy.
This was our day at Monteverde Extremo Park in Costa Rica, a world-renowned zip line and canopy tour.
From my younger sister who's terrified of heights, to my father who was unsure about traveling to Costa Rica in the first place, we all had such a blast! My dad even said it was the best day he had had in years!
Monteverde Extremo Park is located in Monteverde Cloud Forest Biological Reserve. Monteverde Cloud Forest is comprised of 10,500 hectares (26,000 acres) of land and home to more than 500 species of animals and 2,500 species of plants!
Monteverde Extremo Park's Canopy Tour is a zip lining course of 14 cables systems, the longest is 1030 meters (3380 feet)! The Canopy Tour includes zip lining, rappel, Tarzan swing and superman zip line where you go head first "laying" on your stomach to fly like superman!
TIP: After your zip lining day, head to Taco Taco for some seriously delicious Mexican food! Order the Pork El Pastor tacos or Baja Fish tacos!
Additionally, Monteverde Extremo Park offers what is widely considered the best bungee jumping in Central America!
