On day 3 we decided to try the zip line tour. Our day started off being picked up at our Hotel. From there to the office of course to pay for the tour and to fill out the wavier form. We climbed onto the buss and off we went. On the way the guides explained a lot about the ecology of the region, and some personnel funny stories. We also found out what a Oh My God bridge is (for those who don't know, all there is to it, is some poles set into the river bottom with 2x12 boards nailed onto the poles for each side of the vehice and that's it). Upon arrival to our destanation we received instructions. Then it was off to climbing up some trails. On one of the trails our guide found a posion arrow frog. At the top we started our zip tour. The guides encourged us to have fun, hang upside down, or whatever. One of my favorite parts was rappeling, and when the guide asks if you want the express service. Hold on tight. What they do is hang you over the edge let you free fall, the guide at the bottom streches the rope which slows you down, but not before your stomach is in your throat. At the end of the journy is was a relaxing ride back to our resort for a beautiful sunset in the pool.
