Usually, zip lines stretch from platforms built high up in trees in the forest or jungle. The zip lines shown here are unusual, however, because they stretch over a slot canyon carved by a river that runs down the slopes of Rincon de la Vieja volcano.
These photos were taken as part of the activities in the adventure tour at Hacienda Guachipelin. It is a large cattle ranch that has facilities and activities for visitors, including these zip lines. I will refrain from telling you about the remainder of the activities at this time, as during the next week or so I will be showing more photos of some of the activities that my sons and I did during our one-day Adventure Tour visit. If you cannot wait to see more on this website, one day at a time, here is a link to its website. I will post the link to the website again at the end of this series, so you can wait until then before you explore the official website if you don't want to spoil the surprise of the upcoming activities.
There were about a dozen different zip lines in the Hacienda Guachipelin Adventure Tour. After a safety briefing, the first several links go through the forest to get people used to the zip line experience, then this canyon appears, with zip lines stretching across the canyon.
You will notice that in the second photo, my younger son is taking a video with his camera as he is going down the zip lines. Tomorrow, I will show a photo of another way to go down the zip lines.
