Canopy tours

I've been looking into tours, and the canopy tours sound fun.. yet dangerous maybe? Has anybody experienced it before? I'm 18 and my mom will be 50, with a slight knee problem. Also, there is a tour of the Sierra Madres which sounds fun as well.

Its one of the funest things I've ever done down in Mexico!!(the canopy tour). You'll love it!!! Your mom is fine, there are guides at the end of the run who help you land, just as long as shes not over 250lbs! Do it! You won't regret it!!

I'm a 51-yr old mother of four. We did the Vallarta Adventures Canopy tour in June and it was wonderful. Never felt unsafe at all - your harness is attached to the safety line at all times. The staff is wonderful. Although you are on your own as you glide, your are getting instructions all the time. The only problem for your mom may be in the hike back after the canopy tour - it's quite a hike and all uphill.
