The tour begins with a ride in a truck (specifically, a Unimog Mercedes Benz) to the zip-line area. On your slow trek upwards, you’ll pass a coffee plantation. Observe the cultivation of coffee plants, and be sure to take a deep breath and enjoy the aroma of coffee beans. Travelers interested in hiking through the forest to the zip-lines will be dropped off early and led down a forested trail. You’ll cross over hanging bridges and walk along a path through dense foliage.
Once you get to the zip-lining area, you’ll have two options. There’s the Forest Express, which consists of 6 zip-lines of varying lengths and finishes with an assisted rappel down a tree from 40 feet (12 m) high. The other option is the Canyon Express. Designed for adventure lovers, this consists of two huge zip-lines over the canyon—they are almost 1,700 feet (518 m) long and 500 feet (152 m) tall.
These zip-lines are definitely the most exciting way to experience the forest canopy. While you’re on the platforms in trees, be on the lookout for wildlife and birds. Guides accompany you the entire way and ensure that you remain safe and secure.
Travelers who want to experience the forest and farm but not the zip-lines can walk along a forested trail down through the property. You can also choose to take the truck back down, too.
Guatemala’s Acatenango Volcano is set just outside the city of La Antigua. Rising to about 13,000 feet (3,976 m), this volcano is a popular climb with travelers staying in Antigua.
