Perhaps the best value for an exciting tour is the canopy tour by It offers you a choice of horseback riding, or a trailer ride to the rain forest site where you will begin your canopy tour. Before the tour, you are instructed on how the equipment works and what you are supposed to do to keep yourself safe. There are nine platforms of various heights, lengths, and speeds. It progresses even higher until the 6th platform, where you begin to descend. For a guy who’s scared of heights it was just as scary from the first to the last one. You can see various trees and mountain. You can not really see the wildlife or birds since everything races by fast. For that, try walking on the hanging bridges. The instructors guide you every step of the way, even at the last platform if you forget something. In our tour only one guy bowed out of doing it and let his wife and child do it alone. All and all this is a great tour for people who want an adrenaline rush.
