Attraction details
Owner description: Welcome to the longest zip line in the Caribbean.Lower yourself across 16 platforms, and 12 cables, spawning two miles throughout a mountain range. A docile airlift, an ethereal slip sifting through the thick foliage overhead. Glide through two of the biggest zip lines in the Caribbean. Experience an unmatched frenzy, blundering skin deep amidst a dazzling rainforest. As you timidly scour the first cable, your body relinquishes all fears, and an adrenaline rush subdues your being.Twirling from platform to platform, pre-Columbian enigmas come to life in the middle of fascinating vistas. Anamuya Mountain is swathed by mysticism, yearning to be revealed before your eyes. Hidden secrets lie afar in a forgotten site once settled by an indigenous civilization.Raising yourself over a colossal arena, accomplish cunning feats, attaining distances far over 900 meters.

I went to the monkey jungle to zip line for the first time.
I was excited and a bit nervous but the guides who were with us were highly experienced,very informative and encouraging and very funny!
We applaud Stephan, Deston and all of the guides who made the experience one of the best ever.
I would highly recommend this activity to any one of any age.
This activity is open to disabled adults and children also. The proceeds support the monkey jungle which is a rescue for the monkeys and it also supports a medical and dental clinic which offers free care.
You money gives you a fabulous and exciting zip,through the air and supports a great cause!

Definately something you should do while in Dominican! The ziplines are excellent - there are 7 lines and they are very smooth, and the staff - Akon, Eddie Murphy, Usher and Drake were fantastic and made it fun - they are so comfortable with the ziplining that they really put you at ease and make it a fun experience. The monkey enclosure has the cutest little monkeys that hop all over you and it's like little teddy bears on your shoulder - the money raised goes to support a free clinic for the locals who have no access to medical care otherwise - it is such a fun excursion and for such a great cause that I think everyone should make a point of going while on their vacation! Loved it!!

The zipline monkey forest was such an amazing experience. I went with a friend and it was honestly the highlight of our trip to the DR! First of all, we didn't know this upon booking but the procedes go towards helping fund a health/dental clinic, for the DR locals who cannot afford it on their own. The owner greeted us and was very informative about his journey to what he has built today, and also told us that they do frequent ziplining excursions with the handicapp.

The volunteers all had cute "hollywood" names which made it easier to remember for a review;-) With that said, "Eddie Murphy", "Wesley Snipes", and "Babyface" took us to the ziplines and "Tom Cruise" gave us a tour of the monkey forrest. It was such a memorable experience and everyone that worked there were super helpful and knowledgable. Ziplining, was one of the most exilierating things I have ever done...not something for trhe faint of heart:-) The monkeys were FREAKIN ADORABLE!!! They actually jump all over you!

All in all, if you do any excursion in the DR you HAVE TO DO THIS ONE!! The whole day was awesome and to know that your money goes towards a greater cause makes it even better!

Went earlier today to the Monkey Jungle Zip Line and it was fantastic! We had a car and drove up the long road from the main hwy to get there, around 25 min, the road was rough at times but really no issue. First we fed the small monkeys holding a plate of food in our hands and they just jumped on and around us, so cute! We had 13 people in our party for the zip line part with age ranges from 20's to 70's if you can believe it. It was our first time zip-lining and the guides were very reassuring and my trio felt we were in safe hands. The very last jump is a free fall but do not fear it, one person in our group backed out of it, but it really was not bad at all-do it. The best thing about this experience is that the money goes to fund a free dental and medical clinic for the people living here. Our cost driving there ourselves was $70 US dollars, well worth the price for a great experience. The total time spent there was around 3 1/2 hrs or so. Can't wait to do it again!

Excellent zip line course, and really nice team working there! Tom Cruise (aka Ryan), Babyface, Kobe Byrant, and all the rest (we forget the pseudonyms) were all fantastic. They took the time to ensure everybody's safety without destroying the childish need for fun.

Before taking the plunge, I proposed to my fiancee there! It was appropriate when I learned of a final plummeting surprise at the end of the course.

The monkeys were also an amazing attraction. We thoroughly enjoyed the informed, professional guides provided to explain such interesting primate behaviour. I am a true animal lover and I will never forget this experience.
