I took my 9 year old son on the trip. The hotels don't really promote this, but it was a great 1/2 day tour. Most of the other tours are 8am to 5pm. This was a 10 mile ATV ride. You get a helmet (not as protective as a US motorcycle helmet) and goggles. There were about 20 people on the tour and we had 3 guides. My son rode on the back. They let the teens drive their own ATVs. You start on a main street with traffic (I felt safe) then a side street, then a dirt road then a rocky road with a lot of bumps. After about 50 minutes you arrive where you put on your zip line gear. I was just ziplining in Arenal Costa Rica which was great. This was like a 5 year olds art project vs. a Picasso, but still fun. The first zip line you need to climb up a 2 story ladder up a tree. The zip line is not that long but fun. The next one they actually need to pull down on the line part way through to pop you up (it seems to avoid a crash landing). The last was another ladder up a shaky tree. Then you walk a minute to an underground waterhole. You take another 2 story slippery ladder down a small hole to a cavern with water the size of a 1/2 small pool. You dive in and swim for about 10-15 minutes then climb back up and back to the ATVs for the last 50 minute ride. We had a blast. The guides were funny and tried to scare you several times (all in fun).
The bad - not for the feint of heart. We had a Drama Queen from Brooklyn who almost wet her pants doing this. Also 3 of the teenage girls drove off the road. Some into the woods and I think an ATV flipped once. Nobody was hurt but not an easy drive. Also, in the jungle around the zip lines, one or two of the guides wreaked of marijuana. Not great considering your safety is in their hands.
Nonetheless, my son and I had a blast.
