The lush green surrounds you giving you a relaxing and peaceful state of mind. Even if you are ziplining pretty high, the vegetation masks everything and offers you not just beautiful views but also a primitive sentiment of belonging to that environment. The guides that we had were GREAT: joyful, entertaining, knowledgeable, and they made everything easy.
