Splette's Travel Blog


Splette on a cable. A great way to see the nature from above.One of those fun things I always wanted to do here in Central America but never did (despite living here for a year) is ziplining (or canopy how it’s sometimes called).
Essentially, it’s a bunch of steel cables spanned across high standing trees. With a pulley you are attached to the cable and can glide from platform to platform. I was lucky, as my friend D’Angelo was able to get me a free ticket at the Vista Arenal tour operator. I was told there are over 120 places in Costa Rica to do this kind of activity. In the place I went to there were 12 zip lines in total, the longest one was 800m.

That's me. Just hanging there. Excuse my unfashionable orange headgear

Just hanging there

We got lucky with the weather. To those of you that have not done it before and might think this is scary (yes, I am talking to you, mother) I can assure you that these is absolutely nothing frightening about it. It’s really just fun. And a great way to experience nature from above, gliding over canopies, valleys and small streams. Too bad, it’s over way too quick…

Update: Here is a video made by D’Angelo from www.travelcostaricanow.com about our little trip. Check it out:
