      Ziplining in Verugua Rainforest

      December 22, 2019 in Costa Rica ⋅ 🌧 25 °C

      From the canals, we headed up the mountains and in to the rainforest, causing our bus a bit of trouble as we ascended some of the steeper hills. Waivers signed, kit donned and safety briefs completed, we headed to the first platform. Ben was first up of the whole group and flew off the first platform towards the second of twelve, rolling high above and within the rainforest canopy. We did keep an eye out for wildlife, although as we advanced through the zip wires the increasing speed made this more of a challenge. However just off the second platform, we were treated to the sight if some howler monkeys in the treetops...and their noise accompanied us most of the way around too! It was an absolutely cracking experience and well worth signing up for.

      As we were first up, we were also first down. Whilst we sat and waited in the cafe for the rest of the group, the rainforest truly earnt its name - the heavens opened and the rain poured...and those still ziplining got very, very wet!
