Guests are picked up by boat; the boat ride is about 45 minutes to an hour. This depends on how much you see while going through the jungle river as guests enjoy a continental breakfast provided by the tour company. On arrival guests are allowed time to use the bathrooms and stretch their legs. Afterwards they are taken to the resort on a well-equipped van with air conditioner.
On arrival guests hike for 10 minutes to get to where the zip line will take place. The zip line adventure consists of 8 zip line platforms each strategically located within the rainforest canopy. Double cables (each capable of withstanding 2,000 pounds of weight, the requirement for this tour truly has nothing to do with weight but with the size of the safety equipment) are used for the ultimate safety. All landing platforms are equipped with safety gear, handrails and guides to meet your next landing as well as to ensure your personal safety throughout the tour. The platforms are as high as 85ft into the canopy and as far apart as 250ft!
Guests head to the restaurant to have lunch that is also provided by the company. When guest have finished with lunch and rested for a while guests get ready for the cave tubing. The guides equip the guests with the tube and the headlights. The hiking takes about 30 minutes to get to the caves itself. The river is like a lazy river, all guests do is lay on the tube and the river takes you to a great experience inside the caves. Guests get to see the crystalline stalactites and it is a fascinating experience to be inside the caves when it is raining. The cave tubing takes about 1 hour to 1 hour and a half. When everybody has changed into dry clothes guests head back to San Pedro through the same routine.
