Canopy Riding in Costa Rica

One of my dream vacations is Costa Rica. Beautiful lush mountains, plenty of hiking and the opportunity to zip line through the tree canopies! My Uncle Mark and Aunt Denise got to do just that in January. You only have to look through a few of their pictures and videos to see they had a phenomenal trip!

Canopy Riding
Denise and Mark went on 12 jumps total, mostly 20 meters high in forest top. The highest outing was over over 100 meters high and 800 meters long over the forest valley.

Jungle Swing
My aunt and uncle also had the opportunity to ride a giant swing in the juggle. Denise was pretty fearless. Can’t say the same about Mark. : )

Mark and Denise’s trip has only further solidified my desire to go myself!  For more pictures of Denise and Mark’s Trip to Costa Rica, visit my Flickr site!

    @Jorge – Thanks for the info!

    @geekhiker – I know! I want to be jealous. I have to remind myself that just a couple of months ago I was in the Virgin Islands and that I really have little grounds for envy. 🙂

    You know, I’m afraid of heights, normally, but that actually looks cool! And hey, the geek in me wants to know–do you know what kind of camera that was that took such good video? Hehe.
