This is a fun zip line and the guides were very helpful and pointed out the beautiful flowers along the path between zip lines. We had perfect weather to see the beautiful country side as we zipped down the lines. They have 2 lines where you can do different positions. One upside down, I passed on that one but the... More

We really enjoyed shooting through the bushes of Mindo's cloudforest. Our guides took us and a friendly group of French people through the canopy stages in a very professional way (although they did seem a bit bored). This is not an activity that's only for adrenaline junkies, ziplining over the forest feels relaxed. If you want to get an adrenaline... More

Great experience in Mindo. A quick taxi up the hill to get here, and then a guide will take you for $20 along the 10 zip-line path. It's a lot of fun, and they'll let you do different poses after you're comfortable - superman and butterfly. It's also just beautiful - the scenery along the route is stunning with great... More

What an amazing experience! At only $20 you wont find it cheaper anywhere in the world! To be honest at first I was worried about the low price tag but after reading reviews we decided to give it a try! Everything was amazing! The guides were very helpful and made us feel safe. When it was over I wanted to... More

We had a fantastic time here! It was $20 to do the full circuit, which is pretty good for 10 different ziplines. The staff were very good and helped us to try some fun different positions - Superman (forwards with your arms out) and Butterfly (literally hanging upside down!) Terrifying but awesome! A good way to spend a couple of... More

I'll be the first to admit I was scared of the idea of flying above a forest canopy for 650 m on a metal wire. But boy is this fun! The views from the zip line are incredible and the sense of flying gives you a great thrill. You can do the 2 longest zip lines for just $8 which... More

We tried the Canopy Adventure after seeing good reviews on TA. It was a hoot, although definitely a bit scary too. You zip over some pretty great heights, and if you are at all queasy about heights then you will suffer a bit. But in a good way. I tried both the Superman and Butterfly positions (you do these in...

We loved this activity. Well managed and looked after well by the guides. Brilliant views and good fun. Good value too. We booked this through one of the tour agencies in Mindo town and they arranged transport to and from the venue.

The hardest part was finding the building to pay for the excursion and then driving up about 1.5 km to the actual canopy site. Once there, you are greeted by very friendly staff and given instructions for the excursion. My family and I did the 10-line tour which took almost 1.5 hours to complete. The guides were knowledgeable and entertaining... More
