My wife and I made a day trip to this resort for horse-back riding, zip lining, and a natural steam spa. This was our first ever zip line experience, and it was thrilling. However, we first had to get to the resort on small, choppy dirt roads for what seemed like forever. Suddenly a beautiful resort pops up. Our adventure started with a horesback ride up the mountain to the beginning of the zip line canopy tour. It was sunny when we got on the horses around 10:00, so we left the rain gear behind. Big mistake. About 30 minues into the horseback ride, the skies let loose. By the time we reached the top, we were soaked to the skin. We received our zip lining harnesses and training in a deluge, and then set off on the first 500 foot zip line. The first line was terrifying, but we became much more comfortable over the next 10 lines. The guides were fun but also very focused on safety. Each harness was always attached to the line at two different points, and while they moved quickly they also took all appropriate precautions. What we did find a little scary was the lightning strom that kicked up during the zip-lining tour. I can't imagine what option we had except to continue, so the 20 people in our group just stood on the metal platform in the treetops until they hooked our metal harness to the metal cable for the next ride. It's interesting how when you have no options, you don't worry much about the lightning storm. In the end, I think the driving rain and thunderstorm added to our adventure and certainly to our memories and stories of our adventure. I can't wait for an opportunity to take the kids zip lining. It makes the thrills of a roller coaster seem pretty tame.
