Read More GoNOMAD Stories about Ziplining
The best way to see a thick, vast forest has to be zipping through the trees! GoNOMAD offers ziplining adventure stories from beautiful locations all over the globe.
Here are some sample stories:
I could sense the apprehension from the decked-out couple as we entered the elevator in the Marriott on Condado Beach. After a day of tough adventuring we looked like we needed a meeting with Mr. Clean and a date with Tide.
After a hot shower and a few mojitos on the balcony of room 3156 we dressed appropriately for a few hands of blackjack in the sparkling casino off the lobby several floors below. The point of our trip to Puerto Rico was to examine two totally different modes of exploration, and both provided exhilaration.
To many visitors a trip to Puerto Rico is a chance to sip some piña coladas while slathering on sun block or perhaps swinging some clubs.
This trip we wanted to add in bat guano and rappel down some cliffs, a bit of cave exploration and some motorized thunder between the thighs (riding ATVs) would also fit in with our plans. After rough days we wanted nights of pleasure and pampering, a combination James Bond and Indiana Jones tour.
When I got the invitation to go to Costa Rica in November, I jumped at the opportunity. Hey, it’s getting cold here in New England; I wouldn’t mind another week of warmth. Then I read the small print at the bottom of the email: Extreme Ecotourism.
Uh-oh. What have I gotten myself into? I mean, I’m in ok shape, commute to work by bike (all of three miles each way), swim regularly, go to the gym once in a while. But “extreme”? I wasn’t so sure.
Luckily it turns out that the most popular activities are manageable for just about anybody. You only need an adventurous attitude, and a willingness to try and trust.
