Canopy Tours in Guatemala
As with much of Central America, Guatemala has seen an explosion of canopy tours in recent years, and today there is a number of zip lines spread out across the country. Canopy tours are an exhilarating, adrenalin-filled way to experience the Guatemalan outdoors. Tour participants are fitted with harnesses attached to cables, and sent flying along zip lines that extend between platforms. In some cases, the zip lines extend across canyons and hover 500 feet (150 m) above the ground. The tours are very safe, and are run by professional guides.
