Ziplining in Honduras

Elevate Your Sense of Adventure

Some first-timers may hesitate as they contemplate that first step into space. But trepidation is soon replaced by exhilaration as they soar between treetop perches. This must be how birds feel. Zipline fever has come to the jungles and hillsides of Honduras, creating memory-making adventures in the heart of one of Central America's last great rainforest reserves. This is reward without risk, as the cable courses operated by major tour companies are safe and suitable for most all ages and abilities. And as an added bonus, Honduras zipline experiences are often paired with other eco-adventures to create a full day of discovery and fun.

Highlights

  • Best for: Everyone, from relaxing and beach travelers, to soft and rugged adventurers
  • Best season to visit: Year round
  • Weather: Tropical climate with drier winters, passing summer showers and more frequent rains from October through December. Temperatures range from the 70s to summertime highs near 90

Honduras Information

Ziplining in Honduras Overview

A trio of zipline parks on the island of Roatan delivers high-flying thrills for resort guests and cruise ship passengers. On the mainland, the emphasis shifts to nature, with courses that blend aerial excitement with a closer look at the surroundings environment, and routes that lead through forest canopies and across wild rivers.

Ziplining in Honduras Tips

The actual time you spend zipping through jungle treetops may only be an hour or two. But plan on a full day for the adventure if you are visiting courses on the mainland, as there may be drive time to and from the site, and you'll likely want to add on some of the available post-zip activities such as rivers swims, hot springs soaks or dinner in a local cantina.

Best Places to Zipline in Honduras

In the heart of the Pico Bonito National Park, the Jungle River Canopy Tour carries riders through dense forests and over the Rio Cangrejal. On the island of Roatan, a network of cableways stretches for more than two miles and reaches heights of more than 300 feet. Near the ancient ruins of Copán, an elevated mountainside course leads through a range of unique treetop ecosystems.

What to Pack for Ziplining in Honduras

Choose sneakers or sandals with straps that keep them from falling off when you are in the air. For comfort, wear long pants or shorts that won't pinch or ride up when cinched into a zipline harness. Remember retention straps for sunglasses and hats, a scrunchy to control long hair, and bug spray for when you are on the ground.

Passport and/or Visa Requirements

A valid passport is required for entry that must be valid for the length of stay. No visa is required for stays less than 90 days. The passport must have at least one blank page for the Costa Rica entry stamp. There is a departure tax of approximately $29 U.S. which should be included in your international ticket. Check the entry/exit requirements here.

Immunizations

There are no immunizations required for entry into Costa Rica, although you should check with your doctor and with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention for other recommendations.

Culture and Customs

Costa Rica is known as the safest and most prosperous country in Central America. It is home to a large community of North American ex-pats, but also retains its distinctly Latin culture, which includes a relaxed attitude to schedules that is known as “Tico time.” Laid back is not the same as uncaring, however, and Costa Ricans are known for taking pride in their appearances and their work. A well-developed road system connects major destinations, but much of the country's central highlands remain wild and protected within national parks. Within a day's drive of beach resorts at Guanacaste lie the slopes of Arenal Volcano, the Monteverde Cloud Forest and Palo Verde National Park. Costa Rica is the eco-adventure capital of the Caribbean. Surfers come from around the world to ride famous breaks from Witch's Rock to Pavones. Coastal lodges are filled with fishermen seeking light tackle challenges with roosterfish or tugs of war with a marlin. Forests draw birders, hikers and naturalists, and there are more than a dozen rivers offering whitewater rafting thrills. More relaxing experiences await at hot springs, where spa treatments and soaks in mineral-rich volcanic water provide a soothing end to an active day.

Electricity, Phone and Internet Access

The standard in Costa Rica is the same as in the United States: 110 volts AC (60 cycles). Some electric outlets only have 2 prong sockets, so an adapter may be needed for 3 prong plugs.

Costa Rica has an excellent phone system, and the country code for dialing is 506. Check with your cell phone provider for international data and voice plans and costs.

Many resorts and restaurants offer WiFi.

Water Quality

Although the water in Costa Rica is generally safe to drink, water quality varies in some cities. It would be best to use bottled water and avoid ice.

Language & Currency

Spanish is the official language of Costa Rica, but English is widely spoken. The Costa Rican currency is called the “colon”. Check the current exchange rate here. Many businesses will accept U.S. Dollars and major credit cards are widely accepted.

Time

Costa Rica is on Central Standard Time, 6 hours behind Greenwich Mean Time (-6 GMT). Costa Rica does not use daylight saving time, so the time difference is an additional hour April through October.

Location, Size and Population

Costa Rica is located in Central America, bordering both the Caribbean Sea and the North Pacific Ocean, between Nicaragua (to the north) and Panama (to the south). Costa Rica encompasses a total of 19,700 square miles (51,100 square kilometers).

The population of Costa Rica is 4.9 Million (2015) with approximately 350,000 living in the province of Guanacaste.
