The Optional Tours Review/Recap: Los Veranos Canopy Tour
The second optional tour was the Los Veranos Canopy Tour. This is Mexico’s most popular canopy tour which stretches over 2 miles and has 14 zip lines! (Really there are 13 because the last two are set up so that you can race a friend – or – ahem – your betrothed). It is located in a desolate tropical location sure to blow your socks off! And the zip-lines!!! You can go as fast as 30 miles per hour at a shocking 700 meters above the beautiful Orquidias River. Don’t know how high that is? Well there are 3.28 feet in a meter. Yep – that’s pretty freakin high!
Besides the ziplines, there are also 2 stone water slides, a tequila bar, a restaurant, a small petting zoo, and rope swings over the river. This is a perfect place to bring friends and family who aren’t interested in ziplining but wanna hang out, just ask Papa P (Tom’s father) or Christina, Cristie, or Roseanne (The wedding party)! To zip-line, the price is just $67.00 USD per person through puertovallartatours.net and for non-participants, the price is just $20.00 USD.
But I have to say – if you go here, definitely zip-line; overcome that fear and just do it! It is life changing and the guides aware truly awesome. Zip-lining was one of the coolest things Tom and I have EVER done – and we did it together with our great friends David, Mat and Dara (pictured below).
We even have a video! Starring in the video from are David, Mat, Dara, Tom, and me, in addition to a few others in our group on their vacation or honeymoons. Clearly the five of us were the most fun in the group. BTW, I LOVE the fact that whoever bought this video gets to see my Legalize Gay shirt over and over each time they play it! Go Gay Marriage!

We really had a wonderful time – all of us. I can’t wait to do it again sometime!
