Ecoglide or Sky Trek for ziplining?

My family will be trying ziplining for the first time. Our children are 9 and 11. I must admit I am pretty nervous about going. Should we choose Ecoglide or Sky Trek? Not worried about the cost as much as just having a good experience.

Hi carolnjeff,

We too were newbies to zip lining so we chose Ecoglide over Sky Trek due to the price and location being close to where we stayed (El Silencio del Campo). There are 13 cable lines with a Tarzan Swing. As a newbie we thought we made an excellent choice. Very friendly and professional staff. We felt very safe and the Tarzan Swing was absolutely a life time experience (to me, at least). We had such a great time. Do go in the morning so it's not so crowded. There were only 4 of us when we sent at 9am, so the waiting time from one cable to another wasn't bad at all and we were in most of the pictures and videos that the staff took. If you like, you can purchase the dvd for $30. And at the end, they give you a free drink.

We really liked Ecoglide.

Both are safe and fun. Sky Trek has faster, longer lines.

I'd also recommend a canyoning tour with either Desafio or Puretrek... You'll all love it.
