On our first full day in Puerto Rico, the Texas crew of adrenaline seekers traveled from San Juan to Rio Grande, just outside El Yunque National Rainforest, for an afternoon of ziplining through the densely populated Puerto Rican flora.
Climb the ladder. Meet the platform. Greet the tree tops. And when you’re ready, a guide attaches two lanyards on your climbing harness to a pulley on the zip line. Lift your feet up and let it ride.
That’s how it went down for two hours through the 8-line canopy tour over the river and through the woods at up to 60 mph. Check that one off the bucket list.
