I wondered whether ziplining, a hallmark of Costa Rica, would be just a lame tourist attraction and not much of an adrenalin rush for this air-sport junkie.
It turned out to be much more fun--and scarier--than I expected. Seeing the rainforest from a tree top view was amazing (when I was able to keep my eyes open, that is!)
I did 15 runs, plus the optional "Tarzan Swing," which was basically a rainforest version of a bungee jump. You can listen to me screaming like a howler monkey during that experience, in the video below.
