We began our exciting, action packed afternoon in Costa Rica, in the Arenal Volcano area, with a private adventure: 2 women with some fear & 2 experienced, confident guides, zip-lining 9 different zip-line routes around, within, above & through the jungle, seeing lush trees, flowers, monkies & sleuths. Watching the videos below will show you the thrills.
Below, I'm zip-lining upside down with our guide, Muerte. His name means death in Spanish; when I heard it, the laughter up-ended some of my fear.
Below, I'm flying with "Death".
Below, I'm just zip-lining.
Below, after a slow start, I am galloping with my horse.
Above, Jessica and I are standing on the platform, before repelling down the cliff to the river. At the river, we hiked back up a spiral staircase & over a trail to another jungle clearing where we picked up 2 horses & our guide. We then strolled, trotted & galloped our horses home.
We ended our day with a well deserved massage and facial followed by a delicious dinner of grilled Tilapia over vegetables with a baked potato.
