We have done other canopy tour/zip line excursions, but this was our absolute favorite. The addition of the Tarzan swing, repelling, and climbing the fig tree really completed the experience! Another wonderful aspect was the guides, and the small group 3 friends, that did it alone. The whole experience is something that I would love to do again! We highly suggest this zip line tour!

We went as a group of 5 friends and spend 3 hours and 40 dollars in there.
It was an amazing axperience and we don't regret it at all.
The staff was nice and the activities were awesome:
you can swing like Tarzan
Climb up inside a strangler fig tree
and it ends up with a 800m zip line from a hill to another with a marvellous view.
We Strongly recommend it.

We picked this canopy tour since we are not crazy about "extreme" sports while still want to enjoy the adventure above the trees. Our two guides are very friendly. We had fours parts of tours: The big "swing", zip line for beginners, rappel and climb the tree and zip line advanced. I liked the Rappel and clime up inside the tree the most. The staff helped us taking photos and emailed us pics and videos of our tour as promised after we were back home. Highly recommended.

We went to the Mahogany Park Original Canopy Tour. The guides were great made made sure we were safe as we glided between the trees and across the valleys. Totally exciting and with the double cable we always felt "safe" with a bit of will we safely make it between the trees. We were ready to make another loop as it was so much fun.

We were extremely impressed with our Original Canopy Tour, zip-lining. We wanted to go where it all began and were thrilled with our experience. This is originally a Canadian company, we also found out, and our entire group was Canadian, so it all felt very right! There are so many options here and it can be challenging to choose which one is right for you. We took the 10:30 tour time ( there are earlier and later options you can choose) and we were picked up and returned to our lodge without extra charge. The guides Ronno and Jose were professional yet fun and pointed out nature highlights as well as making us feel secure and confident in our adventure activities. We had great times on the Tarzan swing, rapelling, and climbing up ( inside! ) the huge fig tree as well as all the regular zip lines. We had zip-Lined once before in Jamaica ( loved it) and it turns out this Original group went to Jamaica to share their expertise and get them setup and operational !!! We really appreciated the willingness of the staff to take our pictures throughout the experience. So many other adventure sites take their own photographs but then sell them to you for extra at the end. Not this outfit. They take excellent pictures, posing the greatest shots so you'll never forget the fabulous time you had with them! Definitely a bargain!
