canopy ziplineDay 3: Be sure to eat a light breakfast!  Today you will go on a high speed, high flying canopy zipline adventure.  On this gravity defying adventure,  you will soar through the canopy of the cloud forest on zipline cables, suspended by wheel and harness.

For those that want a little slower pace, a natural reserve and bird watching hike can be exchanged.
