Very scary as a beginner but if you ask for the guide to do it together it helps a great deal . Alternatively , you can always start from the third level and enjoy the ride all the way down to la campa .

The guide was friendly and humorous which added to the fun . The views are spectacular as long as you get over the fear of heights ...I couldn’t until I did it with the guide holding me.

Really fun !

The Zipline is well worth the fear that you feel before you go! The staff is great and very alert. The cost was 500 lempiras. We showed ID and signed a waiver before we went. There are six different cables and the last one leaves you in the beautiful town of La Campa.

I had visited La Campa and the Canopy two years ago, it is a nice colonial town and the canopy is meters above. You six lines to go through in about more than an hour. At the beginning, yes very intimidating, once done you want to do it again.
Not the most orderly place, so if you do it with a tour and pay it you have better chance to faster.
If you do it yourself, go early, sign on a roaster they have so you can do it, bring cash it cost 750 lempiras for foreigners and 500 for Hondurans.
The road is very steep but they continue to fix it, from la campa is a short ride. SUV or Crew cabs are better for the trip, compact vehicles you will slower.
The guys supporting you are very professionals and they will guide, do not be afraid, they will take care of you.
Use light weight clothes, better if they are cargo pants or shorts so you may carry belongings. Tennis shoes are suggested or some shoes that will help you walk on a dirt path.
Enjoy it and have fun is worth it!

We arrived at La Campa by bus and were brought to the location without any information („Canopy? Vamos!“). Everything was stressed. No explanation. We asked for security instructions in english for better understanding as we only speak little spanish but the guys would not speak a word. Another guest had to translate a form which was written in spanish which apparently would speak your business free of guilt in case of accidents. Security instructions were in spanish only so we would understand only half. So signing the form without appropiate instructions was not within our liking. Additionally, a provided baño was miserable. I would not even call it baño thats how disgusting it was. Despite this lack of service we would have been charged half the price extra because we are white. I would call this racism. We clearly stated that we are not happy with all these events but still staff did not care and just went on with normal business. This business btw was managed in a fashion that you could think that the staff want to get rid of the clients as soon as possible to get lunch. Interestingly, this was proven true as we saw the staff just 15 minutes after the first clients left in the local comedor.
I cannot recommend this business. Its only money making. Besides it only takes 5 minutes for doing the zip lines.

We tried to book and impossible as they ask you to come to la campa town directly. When we arrived there was a group that got there at the same time and they served them with pelvic hanging equipment. After waiting for 30 minutes looking at people jumping we asked the person in charge if we could finally purchase our tickets as well and he answered they without the equipment being available he could not sell tickets and we would need to wait for all the people that jumped first to complete their canopy in order to get them back. He said it would take 45 minutes. We waited in that top of a hill for 1.45 minutes and no one came back. We were at least 20 people which some decided to leave and not wait for them. Then the manager came to drop the people off to get their car back and he did not even bother to look at us and give us any sort of update. I decided to Leave and it was a half day completely wasted in vain. Poorly organized, badly managed and security is really at risk as Instructors were drinking beer in cans right before sending the people on the wire. When they are not there no body supervise what happens on the jumping dock having a permanent risk of fall through the hill!! What a shame to have such a great canopy that could compete with others in Central America but so poorly managed that they lose business everyday! Their toilets stinks and no running water is available!!! Please don't go!! We left de-hydrated and burned by he sun!! Ah and the number you are supposed to call to get picked up...they always tell you to call another number and hang up on you!! These guys are a disgrace to Hondurans man kind!!

I did this with my husband and two adult children. My husband needed to be coerced to participate, but finally relented. On his first trip down the line--by far the biggest and most fear producing--the attendants at the base where he was to land were not paying attention--they were texting on their phones. My husband was neither stopped nor caught and rammed his hip onto the wooden base, tearing through his shorts and giving him a four inch gash. Then he spun around and hit his calf, adding to the injury. The rest of our vacation was marred because of the pain he was in. No apologies were given.

It was a long and arduous journey for the group of us to make it to La campa but it was worth it in the end. Depending on your budget it can be considered cheap or expensive but we spent $30 a person on the zip lining. (I thought that was very reasonable). Make sure to call in advance (we called when we got there and had a little bit of wait until they arrived with our harnesses) It was a bit inconvenient but honestly we didnt mind since we were too excited to go through the canopy. Make sure you have enough time planned in the day (we were a large group so it took ~2+ hours). The experience is thrilling and unlike any other. The staff was very comforting and helpful. They made sure you knew what you were doing and had proper form before heading out. The materials (harness and helmets) were great quality and I definitely felt safe and secure. If you got stuck they knew before you even stopped and were already on their way to help. They were fantastic and very professional. The canopy itself is absolutely breathtaking. The first one is by far the scariest and highest but once you take that leap you cant help but enjoy yourself. Overall, we all enjoyed ourselves and would have loved to go back and redo the canopy. If you have the time and dont mind the travel I highly recommend you do this extreme canopy!

This was a great experience and well worth the trip to La Campa. Despite speaking very little Spanish we were put at ease by the staff and they were happy to take us despite there only being two of us. However from a practical perspective dont get off whatever form of transport you have managed to take when you see the first sign on the road. You need to travel all the way into La Campa and go to the Municipal building where you get the equipment and meet the guides who will accompany you. They then drive you to the start of the zipline. We made the mistake of walking up to the start without equipment and then had to return to La Campa and its a very long hot walk up a huge hill!

This zipline is only about 18 months old and was erected in order to bring more tourism to the state of Lempira in northwestern Honduras. It begins above the Lencan town of La Campa and takes you into town behind the church. My family agreed it was a great ride and that all equipment was new and professionally installed. Rates are different for tourists vs. locals ($30 vs. $20; pay in cash, that is in lempiras). To reach the zipline, take the road from Gracias towards the town of La Campa. The entire distance from Gracias to La Campa is about 11 km; the top of the zipline is about 1 km before you reach La Campa and is marked with a sign. If you don't have a car, take the public bus to Gracias and then start walking towards La Campa. Before long a vehicle will stop and give you a ride. The road to La Campa is dirt and is definitely not for low clearance vehicles.

We visited La Campa during a weekend in May and had an amazing time! The site is around 16Km (10 miles) away from Gracias and you get there through a dirt road. I would advise getting there on a 4WD or an SUV since there are several holes on the road and it might be trickier for smaller cars to make it all the way up.

The experience is a great one, it consists of 6 zip lines that go through the canyon and it ends up in the church of La Campa town. It is nothing short of extreme, but once you're past the first line, fear goes away. I never felt unsafe, the staff gave us clear instructions (positions, where to grab ourselves, etc) and was always present and helpful during the ride.

Since you don't end where you begin, make sure to coordinate the return with the staff once you're there (if there's people in your group who aren't doing it, tell them to wait for you at the end station so you can leave the site once you finish).

I definitely recommend this ride 100%, however, here's a couple of things to consider beforehand:

- You can't make reservations. They're open from 8am to 4pm (with an hour break for lunch) and it's on a first come first serve basis. Since there's only one crew and they all leave once they're on the ride, you have to wait until the current group finishes. The ride takes about a 1.5 to 2 hours, larger groups (25 people) take around 4 hours.

- If the crew is doing the ride, there is no one at the site when you get there. There's a number you can call, but it might take a while before someone picks up.

- During rainy season in Gracias, the ride may be suspended in the afternoons due to rain and/or electrical activity. Make sure to get there early enough and bring an extra set of warm clothes to change into after finishing, in case it rains during your ride.
