Marty Online   happy

The longest zip line in Central America is 2,300 feet long and located at Mayflower Bocawina National Forest near Silk Grass Village on the Southern Highway in Belize. Nestled amidst 7,000 acres of pristine lowland broadleaf forest in the saw-toothed Maya Mountains, the adventure center offers day and night time zip lining, waterfall rappelling and hiking.

1.5 miles of zip lines stretches across 12 platforms, starting with short easy zips that get longer, faster and steeper. The last one is the longest, lasting over 30 seconds. There is also a surprise rappel built into the course. Make sure to keep an eye out for waterfalls!

After a thrilling adventure, enjoy a lunch of fresh juice, fried fish, and rice and beans at The Wild Fig Restaurant with a great view of the park. Nestled in the heart of this beautiful National Park is Mama Noots Eco Resort; a spacious jungle lodge operated entirely on solar and hydro energy.

Stay overnight at a Canopy Hut and experience the stillness of the jungle at night. This is also a great place to wake up early morning and do some bird watching. Over 193 species of birds and a few tribes of howler monkeys are residents of Bocawina

I can believe the Mama Noots zipline is the longest in Belize. I saw it a few months ago, and it looks great, though I didn't try it.

HOWEVER, Mama Noots is NOT the longest in Central America. El Santuario Canopy Adventure Tour near Manuel Antonio, Costa Rica, for example, is about 2 1/4 miles long with 11 lines and 14 platforms. And a single zip line there is 4,300 feet, about 8/10ths of a mile, roughly 2,000 feet longer than the Bocawina Eco Adventures longest zipline.

When I was in the newspaper business, I was taught NEVER to call anything the first, biggest, longest, heaviest, shortest, oldest, etc. -- someone will always come up with something else that tops it.
