This morning, after breakfast, the group headed over to Sky Adventures for our zip-lining adventure. Costa Rican zip-lines are known to be incredibly long and fast. They are a great way to view the beautiful Costa Rican forests from above. I’ve zip-lined in Jamaica before. However, the zip-lines in Jamaica, cannot compare to the ones in Monteverde. Zip-lining in Costa Rica was scarier but once accustomed I was able to appreciate the beauty of the cloud forest below. Like Jamaica, the last zip-line was a bungee jump. The hardest part was preparing myself to jump off the platform. I am glad, I forced myself to jump. Zip-lining was an incredible experience and I will definitely do it again.
Three people from our group decided not go zip-lining. However, they did spot a quetzal while waiting for the group. Darn, this is the second quetzal sighting I missed.
After zip-lining we headed over to the Santa Elena Reserve where we set up a trapping camera, previously donated by another Mac-Serve alumni group. It was pretty awesome that we were able to contribute to further research in the area.
Tomorrow, we have a full
day of volunteering on the reserve and in the evening, we are going on a night tour.
