Two fears- we were too old and too heavy. Not a problem. On the high octane adventure we were picked up on time at our hotel and transported to a base camp. From there we were taken by an old but dependable Hummer up the mountain. A short walk into another camp where we were fitted with the equipment we would need for the day. They fitted my husband with an additional upper body harness. The team that took care of us were so helpful and encouraging. You must experience Costa Rica from inside the Rain Forest with a bunch of guys that are half spider monkey. I felt like I really accomplished something. How often in your life do you get to willingly release yourself from high above a cool clean pool fed by a mountain waterfall? Zip lining and rappelling were new skills to learn and we were able to do them several times in different locations. The team is all about safety first. Sharing a lunch all together with new friends and the team in the jungle added the final bonding touch to an adrenaline packed day. Hummer back to the base and small tour bus back to reality. We were not even tired. We were invigorated.
They take pictures and videos of everything so you can concentrate on learning and experiencing. I think I smiled the whole time.They edit out the other participants and deliver by 7:30 pm that night your own CD. $35. Well worth it.
Thanks guys! Wish I could remember all your names. Name tags might be an idea. Remember we are old. Pura Vida!
