We signed up for this (two adults and two kids) not knowing what to expect. Three out of four of us were first timers. This really just blew our minds. Gorgeous surroundings, 12 zipline sections which descended down the mountainside, completely safe, no work at all (you don't have to worry about braking: they do it for you) : just pure thrills.
Terry (the person running it) is dynamic and a real 'local', an American who has lived there over ten years and clearly cares about the place and people. Locally prepared lunch is included, as is a culture presentation that the villagers participate in.
We had torrential rain the whole time and were soaked through, but the crew managed to get us back to our cruise ship on time despite bad roads and a flooded river which necessitated bringing out two new trucks which could handle the conditions. Lots of excitement we didn't expect, and totally worth it.
