Costa Rica - Pura Vida

Costa Rica is famous for its ziplines. One of the more scenic adventures would have to be the SkyTram/Sky Trek tour in the shadow of Mt. Arenal (an active volcano). The guides take camera's from the participants and film videos while screaming down the ziplines. I've picked one that was representative of my trip. As you listen to it you'll soon understand how the term zipline came to be.

  • 2.8 km of zip lines

  • top speeds of 70km/h

  • 300 meters above the jungle facing an active volcano

I've had my adrenaline shot for the week. I didn't turn my head to enjoy the views until I was safely onto the next platform.
