Wow. The canopy was beautiful! We arrived on a beautiful day, about mile 80 on the Southern Highway. The Zip Line was great, going over the river a couple times and fast (I'm pretty heavy). Well secured, double pulley and knowledgeable guides that were not rushing us to get through. They were very nice and watched every move we made.... More

We chose the tour to Big Falls Extreme Adventures for River Tubing, Zip Line, and Mayan Ruins Tour. Unfortunately, it rained the day of the tour and we were unable to do the tubing due to the river flooding. However, the Zip Line was on! Andrew and wife Shamir were the best hosts, and Ricky our driver and guide for... More

Worst experience in Belize thus far. Traveled here twice and was told the zip lining was magnificent. We called ahead and agreed on a price for our group of 17. We got there, completed all the activities, and was told to pay at the end. When we went to pay the owner decided to triple the price agreed upon. Complete... More

Andrew C, Owner at Big Falls Extreme Adventures, responded to this review

Dear Caitlin, We are genuinely surprised that you would leave us such an unfavorable review, given that you left while still owing us $270 US. You had called ahead and we gave you the rates for 17 people. We provided you the rates in US dollars, since we knew that you were not a Belizean and not from Punta Gorda.... More

This was my first time zip lining and this experience was first rate. I felt safe and secure. The people who worked with us were gracious and so kind. The meal was fantastic! We also went tubing. I would recommend this as one of my favorite things to do in Belize. It is close to the Mayan ruins so easy... More

I've never been zip lining before and was absolutely terrified! However, the owner was super patient with me. He was determined that I should experience it and took all the time necessary to reassure my fears. Most people would have sent me back to my car long ago!! He has a great set up there zip lining across the river...... More

We found this place online before we left for Belize. On our tour to the south we stopped and had a lot of fun with Andrew. He designed the zip line with a lot of thought and hard work. It's in good condition and very safe. We will be going back for more adventures...!!!

My son (10) and I had the opportunity to zipline with Andrew and one of his guides. It was raining occasionally, and Andrew took great care to walk us through all of the equipment and shared his knowledge of the tropical flora surrounding us on each of the six legs of our zipline tour. We spent another hour with him... More

We were in Punta Gorda back in July. It was my son's first trip out of the country and he had a great time!We couldn't make it out to Sapodilla Cayes due to rough seas and were looking for some things to do inland. We were referred to Big Falls and couldn't have been more pleased. Andrew, the proprietor, was... More

We had an incredible time zip-lining and tubing! The kids loved it. It was the best part of their vacation. Ages ranged from 6-15, and they were all able to ride alone. Six long runs through tropical canopy with beautiful openings over the river and falls. Very safe with well maintained equipment. The amazing thing is I am afraid of... More

It's about a two hour scenic drive from Maya Beach. Andrew and his lovely wife run the place and are very hospitable. We started off right away with zip lining. I was scared but Andrew reassured me and he has very safe practices and equipment. There are six tiers and you fly over top of the jungle and the river.... More
