I held my tongue about my accident with this company hoping that we could settle medical issues on the side (nope). Now that I read about the horrible death a few months ago I am speaking out. This company is TERRIBLE!!! We were the first group of the day and apparently (I found out later from the owner himself) they... More

Please think twice my dear friend was killed because the cables were not inspected and they broke. Be aware that while Mindo and the attractions are great there is no regulation doing canopy. What is worse there is no emergency rescue team, emergency site treatment or a specialized doctor who can help if something bad happens in the town, in... More

Just $15 gets you thirteen zip-line rides - each different. Gorgeous scenery, terrific guides to help.

It was amazing. We did this with two guides who went before and after us. Though they hadn't a huge amount of english they made sure we knew exactly what we were doing and that we were enjoying it. The views were spectacular and it's a real thrill. I'm not sure that regulation exists or if it does it's not... More

The guides speak English, they were very socialable with the group. The equipment was in great shape and they were very careful with every person. The views were awesome. Go early in the morning, about 9am before the buses get there.
