Enjoy a truly thrilling ecological experience that offers you the unique opportunity to glide through the treetops on a network of cables suspended high above the jungle trails in Puerto Vallarta’s tropical forest. On this spectacular eco-adventure tour, you will experience what can only be described as a breathtaking view of one of the most beautiful and complex biological communities on earth. Just 60 minutes from Puerto Vallarta, in the heart of the tropical forest of the Sierra Madre Mountains, lies a private eco-reserve—a biological paradise where you will discover a stunning profusion of Mexico’s tropical flora and fauna. With the assistance of an experienced guide, you can sail from tree to tree and platform to platform on a zip line network of pulleys and horizontal cables mounted between 30 and 90 feet above the ground of the tropical forest. This exciting adventure consists of 14 observation platforms, 11 horizontal traverses, a Tarzan swing, two hanging bridges and two thrilling vertical descents. Participants are under the constant supervision of qualified personnel who have received more than 200 hours of formal training in canopy tour operations and safety techniques. They use only top-quality equipment that is regularly and rigorously inspected and maintained.
