A Perfect Zipline for Kids & the Less Adventurous

They are open and running zip line tours! New- a rock climbing wall for only $10 more!

1/12 They have added a higher tower for their zip lines.

Rain Forest Zip Line Corp

Zip lining has become a very popular adventure sport here in Puerto Rico. In fact, it seems as if ziplines are popping up everywhere!

Rain Forest Zip Line Corp is a zipline company that offers a zipline experience, just seconds off the road that leads up to El Yunque National Forest. While not the largest nor the most modern zip line facility on the island, it offers a zip line experience that the whole family can enjoy.

Zip lining is a load of fun. It is on many people’s "bucket list", but just the thought of doing it is enough to really freak some people out. Understandably, being strapped into a harness, hung from cables high off the ground, and then zipping through the air at high speeds from tree to tree is not everyone’s idea of fun.

Some places that have zip lines have gone to extremes on height and distance, or added on other adventures like rappelling or hiking. Those elements may be overwhelming for some first-time flyers. If that sounds like you (or someone in your family), you may be interested in the Rain Forest Zip Line Corp. They offer the zipline experience without a total scared-to-death aspect.

Our Thoughts

We have done a LOT of zip line courses, both here in Puerto Rico and elsewhere. Rain Forest Zip Line Corp is a small, family-run business set up on their farm. When we did their course, it was small, but they have expanded it. They have 8 zip lines. When we went they had 6 lines, with a maximum height (off the ground) of 35 feet. The longest line was 250 feet. Obviously , things have changed! Now the height can be up to 200 ft and the longest line is 2300 ft long!

This is a place for people of all ages who want to try this extreme sport — without being too extreme. All the lines are close by (maybe a 5-10 min walk, so there is no long walk between them. And, if you decide that it’s not for you, you can stop and walk away at almost any point. Some of the lines are controlled speed (not too fast) and some of them are faster, where you will have to brake, though they do have a safety brake to help if you are approaching the landing platform too fast.

The owners, Hector and Rafeala, offer a personal touch — welcoming people to come in and sit a while before or after your tour. Hector is an artist and his love of nature and EL Yunque shows in his art — which is displayed in the office.

During the tour, they discuss El Yunque and its relation and meaning to the Taino Indians — the original inhabitants of the island. Being one with nature in this pretty place helps give you a calm to try this sport!

They gear you up with all the required equipment to do the sport — harness, helmet, and gloves. Their ziplines are double-cables — the main zip line is steel and the safety line is a heavy duty rappelling rope (which has a 6000-pound strength).

As you are getting suited-up, they explain the skills required to zipline. Then you have a practice run on a short line just to try out those skills. Once they feel you understand what you need to do, they take you to a starter line. This line is close to the ground and slow. They call this one the kids line.

Once you feel comfortable with beginner course, you go on some jungle lines, that have you speeding through the trees. From there, there are some lines that offer great views of El Yunque and the surrounding area. Of course they have employees on each platform to clip you on and off the lines, and to make sure that you are doing well.

All in all, it was an enjoyable tour. I am sure that beginners, kids and people with fears (but who still want to try it) will love the experience.

Normally, when we review an activity that is not free to the public, we pay the admission price out of our own pockets. However, we just want you to know that the guys at Rain Forest Zip Line Corp. were kind enough to offer us this trip for free. While we don’t feel that this free ride influenced our review one way or the other, we felt that we should tell you, just as a matter of fact.
