Make like Tarzan and Jane on a jungle canopy mega swingMonteverde, Costa Rica
Give your zip-lining mates the look. You know, the one that says, “That is seriously lame.” While they spend their days zooming horizontally across the lush tropical canopy near Monteverde, you can get in on the original King of the Jungle act.
Beat your chest, grab the rope (alright, we know you’re wearing a harness) and fling yourself off the platform built 45 metres above the jungle. There’s no dismounting on the next tree though; modern-day Tarzans (and Janes) make like a human pendulum, swinging 150 metres before being deposited softly on the ground.
- The adrenaline high that lasts long after the ride is over
- Zip-lining ‘Superman’ style, where you lay flat on your stomach with a harness around your chest and hips
- That moment of terror just before you jump
- The quality of the camera used to take your photographs is average, and you can’t get film of your swing
A swing starts at US$50.
It takes some guts to fling yourself off from the platform.
