We were put into harnesses, given some instructions, then immediately attached to a short zip line and we zipped down to the next platform. There were 14 zip lines in all, 2 of which were extremely long (1/3 to 1/2 mile long maybe?) and went over a huge canyon filled with greenery. In the middle of the tour there was a "tarzan swing." We climbed stairs to a platform 40 feet off the ground and were attached to a rope that was likely about 35 feet long and swung into a clearing.
After the zipline adventure (lots of fun!) we decided to spend the rest of the afternoon hiking to a waterfall
Once back at the hotel we showered, watched tv (Nacho Libre with Jack Black was on--in spanish of course) for a bit and then decided to walk back into town for dinner. Since there were of us (6 ISA students and our driver, Luis) no one was being decisive about where to eat (we had been walking back and forth for about 30 minutes and were all starving). Meredith (a student from Wisconsin) and I decided that we were going to the coffee bar and that others could come if they wanted but they decided to eat elsewhere. I had a mini ham and cheese pizza and a mojito and Meredith had arroz con pollo (rice and chicken) and a piņa colada. We then decided to try a typical Costa Rican drink, a Guaro Sour (and another piņa colada). The guaro sour basically tasted like lemonade-a little sweet, a little sour and definitely worth ordering again
We then made the trek back up to our hotel and went to bed.
I took 2 videos of the "Tarzan Swing."
