Thanks to this forum, I have learned about Altournative and my daughter and I would like to do one of their expeditions. We would love to hear from some folks who have been on one of their day trips! When we go, my daughter will have just turned 7, so I'm curious as to which expedition is most appropriate for her age. (they say 6 is the minimum age). We are trying to decide between these two and would appreciate any feedback:
Mayan Encounter - day long trip to Coba, rappelling into cenote, ziplines, etc. If she is too afraid to zip line or rappel, is that a problem? Does it hold up the group? My biggest concern here is that it seems like a really long day.
Mayan Zip Line - this is a shorter day, which would be good, but we would not get to see Coba. It also includes a bike ride - do they have any sort of tandem attachments since my daughter is not super fast or coordinated yet on a bike?
I have also emailed Altournative, and if I find out any info from them, I'll post a reply.
Thanks so much!
