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.

Our famy of five did this zip line tour today and I was so impressed the package from start to finish. We have three kids 7,9 and 11 with one cautious kid and a mom ( me) who is a little scared of heights ( but tries to push past it) . The guides were phenomenonal ! Took extra time to explain everything with the kids and knew straight away the date devil who wanted the push and the cautious one who needed reassurance . It starts easy - several lines (5-6) where you can see what you are in for , each a little higher/faster . Then moves on to three forest runs . Our kids and Us couldn't get enough . Even the cautious of the bunch was rearing for more when we were done . Perfect introduction for young families and those trying ziplining for the first time . And as a mom k felt my kids were comeyt safe in their hands at all times . They also helped us with camera issues and were more than happy to photograph us along the way ( they even had a guide take a video for another solo visitor on their phone on one of the double lines) . An amazing experience from start to finish . Thank you !

Thanks- I changed the article to reflect that.

Their website lists a minimum age of 8yo.

I hope everyone reads the above ad before going to Rain Forest Zip Line. If I had read it, I would not have been as disappointed in the experience (probabaly because I would not have gone). As stated above, this is a 100.00 experience. For that price, I expected to go up on a platform and not come down until I had zip lined all over the "rainforest". This was basically several zipline trips across a backyard. Lots of up the stairs and down the ladder and accross the field to the next ladder or stairs. Most of the workers are kind and knowledgeable, however if you are looking for a true rainforest adventure, this is NOT the place to go.

I agree with Mark. We went to Puerto Rico for thanksgiving 2013 and used this company. Took my wife and 2 kids ( girls ages 7 and 13 ) and had a blast. We are all first timers except for my 13 yr old. I am not crazy about heights either. The instructors were very friendly , knowledgable and put us all at ease. Did all 10 lines from the beginner line to the tallest...not sure how high the last line is- perhaps 50-60 feet ? All of us had a blast . Very well run. Would not hesitate to go back. Maybe too tame for the expert like skeeter- but perfect for me and my family. john from Maryland.

These lines are really slow, and kind of weak. Instructors are all kids that have a million rules. The highest line was about 7 feet high with a view of the slash and burn used to clear the area. not recommended for any serious zipliner. Beginners should avoid as well, this is not a real zipline experience

Comment by skeeter on 21 Oct 2013

This is great! I have always wanted to try ziplining but I have a great fear of heights. I think this one is right up my alley. Thank you for sharing.

Comment by Maria on 09 Aug 2013

I just got back from Puerto Rico and took my wife and kids (8 year old daughter and 6 year old son) to this zip line company. It was fantastic. The teachers were all outstanding and every step of the way was exercised with safety as the #1 consideration. I would highly recommend this tour for those who have young kids and are interested in trying something exciting such as this and in a very safety first oriented facility. -Mark Benson New York USA
