I couldn't participate due to an earlier injury, but my husband and our seven year-old grandson both had a fantastic time. The crew was great with young and older alike.

We had an awesome day at Umauma. Guides were knowledgable, friendly, fun and took safety very seriously while still showing you how to do fun stuff like hanging upside down! Swim afterwards was also great, we jumped off the cliffs!

This was the best Zip Line Adventure I've ever been on! Zipping over waterfalls and lava tubes was out of this world! The staff was fantastic! They were fun and full of information...they made us laugh the whole time! It was a first for my cousins and they loved it! I'd do it everyday if I could!

We went here for our honeymoon and we are glad that we decided to come here! This is a great place to take family or go with... More

The equipment was easy to use and up to date. After talking with the crew, I knew that safety is their No. 1 priority. I was impressed with their... More
