Hi all:

Was looking for some "new" things to do when we make our next trip. Came across a little info on "zip lining" in the jungle. Anyone done that?? Is it possible to do on a day trip from AC?? Thanks much!

We did a day trip to Jag. Paw for the cave tubing thing. Had a blast and really enjoyed after we survived the last hill of the hike.
Some of our group elected to stay at hotel and stroll the grounds, a few of them did the zip line thing. They raved about it. They spoke of double line redundency system, guide in front of you and behind, very safety orientated. Start out at around 12ft, and as you progress, each station you arrive at is further from the ground. We walked over to the end point, very cool platform up there about 60-80ft?
Not for the faint of heart- I thought about doing it, even though scared of heights- look at the end point first before you decide smile

If they tell you it won't work over satellite, they didn't try hard enough!

I did it and it was great. Went with with Elito from Seaduced and we elected to try that, instead of the cave tubing.So, I know that Seaduced offers it as one of there tours, I arranged it through Monkey Business at Banana Beach.

The hike, and is it a hike, through the jungle and to the first platform. The first run is a bit scary, but after you get over the intial fear and I am going to be able to do this, it is fun, a total of I think 7 or 8 platforms, some of the runs are not long, but I think that one was 250ft. Just looking down and seeing the jungle below is amazing.

You are securely fastened to the cables,one thing that is not an issue is safety.

There are actually a few companies that do this now. I was just at a big trade show in Belize City and met several operators. Yes, you would be able to do it as a day trip from SP. I have to go through all my info & new brochures to get prices, contact info, etc.

I also am looking forward to seeing this info. We'll be in Belize (more or less all over the country) this February. Please post any locations and contact information. This sounds like a blast! Thanks.

KE and Compass,

I booked mine through Monkey Business at Banana Beach.

It was 225.00 for the cave tubing trip, the Belize zoo,lunch and aerial trekking.Aerial Trek and Belize Zoo is $175.00 US + 9% sales tax per person. Minimum of 2 persons needed.I am sure that the trip can be arranged any way that you would like it.

It is done at Jaguar Paw, the place they do the cave tubing, if you have ever been on that trip.

They have brochures, my pictures and any other information that you may need at Monkey Business.

Like I said, I did it with SEAduced, they pick you up at your dock, just like any other tour and at the time,they were the only ones doing the trip. Yes, it is fairly new, I think about 6 months or so.


You could email me, if I could help in any other way.
