Riding the World’s Highest Zipline in Puerto Rico

Posted: February 15, 2011    Categories: Puerto Rico

A few days ago the Puerto Rico Tourism Corporation to me and some other travel writers to the Toro Verde Nature Adventure Park. The parks has 15 zip lines, monkey bridges and even had the opportunity to do some rappelling.

I had never done any of those things before, so it was new experience for me.

The highlight of the day was The Beast. It is a 4,745ft (1.45km) long zip line which is about 900 ft. above the forest floor at its highest point. The video I took was with my iphone and I was holding it vertical, so you might want to expand the video to full screen to see it properly. All image images on this page were taken with my iPhone, so they might not be up to my usual quality level.
