Zip-lines are slowly becoming popular in Panama, although nowhere near the level they are in Costa Rica. Zip-lines are composed of steel cables strung between platforms in the forest canopy. During a canopy tour, participants are fitted into a harness, attached to the cable, and sent down the cable between platforms. Canopy tours are an exciting way to get outdoors and also learn about the ecology of Panama.
4 Things to Do
Scientists originally built this zip lining course in order to better observe wildlife in the canopy. They quickly realized how exhilarating it was to glide through the trees. Now, you can see for yourself on a zip-lining adventure in Portabelo National Park, which is located just 90 minutes outside of Colón.
