Trudge through far-reaching stretches, some as far as 450 meters, as you make your away to the last platform. Feel the crescendo of the Atlantic heightens the adrenaline rush.Set your spirit free; reconnect with nature as it welcomes you with open arms.Glide across engrossed skin deep in the midst of plethoric rainforests. Take delight in unbeatable perspectives, appreciating a bird’s eye view.

My son was 9, he is small for his age but was allowed to go on the first 6 or 7 runs. After that, he stayed with the guide while we continued the rest of the runs. He wasn't the only kid, we saw many around the same age.
