Went with some friends to Calico Jacks for their ziplining and new jungle swing. I'll surely be recommending both to everyone from now on. Calico Jacks picked us up in town in their Land Rover(with a great sound system, by the way), and drove us to their place. It takes under an hour, and is a great deal. Elijah, the manager, picked us up, and was great to talk with during the ride. Smart guy!

The Ultimate Zipline Experience is the way to go. There are 15 platforms, and 10 or so lines, with the longest being 500 feet. Everyone had a great time. The jungle swing is quite the rush, and is a great way to end the day. Elijah and Brandon made us all feel safe, and they were both very professional. Kudos to them, since one person in our group had never ziplined before.

We went to Calico Jacks a couple of weeks ago. Our party was two couples. We had a fabulous time. We went Zip-lining and took a Canoe Cave Tour. The zip lining was so much fun and I am afraid of heights. The guides were just great and made me feel very secure. It was fun and exciting to view the jungle from an on high perspective. We had only been to the island parts of Belize and this was a completely different experience being in the mountainous region. The guides were well trained and emphasized our safety. Zipping over the tree canopy was a thrilling ride.
We then went Cave Canoeing. Our guide had suggested that we do the zipping in the morning and the canoeing after lunch. He was right on target. Neither venue was crowded when we were there, meaning almost no one else. The cave was a very dark and quiet place and not having others there at the same time made the experience that much better. Only our flashlights lit the cave and we were able to listen to the history that the guide was teaching us. The cave was an ancient Mayan ceremonial site where they held human sacrifices. There were visible fossils from the period. Bats flew around as our light would disturb their place in the total darkness. It was an incredible day.
Definitely visit Calico Jacks if you want to have an exciting and educational time in the Belizean jungle!

Our group of 4 senior citizens was a bit nervous about ziplining. Not to worry, the experience was fantastic. The guides were thorough, fun and very safety concious. We moved at a comfortable pace. Never rushed. They provided great coaching.

We all had a blast. If we had another day in the jungle we would have probably done it again. Calico Jacks was the best.

My first time ziplining and I loved it! Can't wait to go back and complete the 1.5 hour experience! I won't deny it was a little overwhelming at first,but once I got comfortable with it,(only took a few minutes, thanks to the calming instruction and help from the guides) it was really fun, exciting and empowering to be able to see the jungle from that perspective. The 3 young boys said it was "the best day of their life".The guides were great with the smallest of the 3 boys,so parents can rest assured that their children will be safe. Knowledgeable,experienced guides that kept safety as a priority. Very beautiful,peaceful surroundings and accommodations so that your really are immersed in the rain forest. Recommend this highly as a must if you come to Belize!

This was my first time zip lining and what an experience it was. The lines were extremely well placed throughout the jungle with lots of great views of the rain forest. It was a blast being able to fly through the jungle high off the ground. The entire operation was extremely well built and extremely safe. I felt safe from start to finish. The two man crew we had were great and very knowledgeable about zip lining and the area. I would highly recommend this attraction and would go again.
