This exciting adventure consisted of traversing from treetop to treetop with specialized climbing equipment over a horizontal cable that was connected between the treetops of the cloud forest. On each tree, there was a platform where we could stop to enjoy the scenery of the forest canopy. The canopy tour offered 9 zip lines (up to 1,960 ft long and 260 feet above ...
