What a super way to share sometime with the family. I put a dent in the weight limit on this one but OMG was it fun. Wife wanted to go around for a second trip but not enough time for us on the cruise. Be aware that just about any attraction in a poor country is going to have the... More

This was a great excursion! The guides were excellent and made sure we were safe at all times. We were with a group of six ages 24 to 73. I am short and the guides assisted me to hook up to the cable. I really enjoyed it and highly recommend this group!

We went during the slow season in Roatan and there was no one else there! We had had 2 guides for the 2 of us. They were very courteous and worked hard for us. We're not exactly in shape and they had to hoist me up everytime to the cable because I'm so short! It was fun to fly through... More

I have done a couple of other zip lines on Roatan but this is by far my favourite. It's not too scary and zigzags across a beautiful valley of tropical jungle. The views are amazing, of the trees, the hills and the sea. I felt very safe and well looked after.

Our multigenerational family (grandparents plus a three year old) all greatly enjoyed the eco walk at South Shore. The guides helped our three year old make it to the suspension bridges, and he was able to walk independently (although I held his hands for safety reasons) across the bridges. The guide was very friendly and polite, and the views here... More

Despite all these other reviews . My experience was stressful. I have been on several zip line trips in different countries. I went solo on this excursion and they penalized me for it. Since I didn't bring a camera they pushed me off every platform as fast as they could. Which would make sense if it were busy , except... More

Saved more than half by taking independent cab and combining tour with a trip to nearby west end beach, both around 20 mins from port. Another advantage is that cruise excursion did not allow my 6yr old to participate in this tour. Admission was $45 per person. South shore guides were amazing took photos for us and rode with my...

Do not book a zip line excursion on Roatan through the ship, definitely go with these guys instead. They were super easy to find at port and the bus ride to the place was air conditioned and comfortable. Plus the driver was funny and basically gave a tour of the entire island. The zip lining itself was the best I've... More

We were a group of 8 (2 adults and 6 kids). There are 13 runs. The guides are fun and try to give you the best experience. The kids love to go upside down and superman! Credit cards are taken here with a fee.
