My family had so much fun zip lining! We have 7 and 11 year old daughters with us. We felt entirely safe the entire time as the staff would check out equipment at each line and made sure everyone was following safety rules. Staff was so friendly and hilarious. They had a banter with each other and they made us laugh the entire time. Andy, Memo, Jovani, and Ernesto were the best! They even threw my husband in the pool for his birthday, which was awesome. Gia at the desk was so kind and courteous as well. Highly recommend!

Excursion of about 7 hours to San Pancho and Sayulita. At first they took us to a mezcal tasting that we really enjoyed. Then we went to San Pancho, where we had a free half hour, and then to Sayulita, where we spent 2 hours free. In addition, the guide was magnificent. I recommend this excursion if you do not like to go in "herd" mode and you are looking for more freedom.

We have a family of 5 with 3 daughters ages 11 - 22. We had such a a memorable time on Christmas Eve. 13 zip lines and the crew was entertaining, respectful, and professional. Ernesto, Johnny, Andy, Mamo, and Manuel were amazing. Omar at the tequila tasting was also top notch and professsional. 10/10, thank you so much, couldn’t recommend it enough. Merry Christmas!

We had an awesome experience zip lining. All the staff and the guides were so good!! I definatly recommend visiting the ranch. Even just to eat and hang out by the pool! Get your guide made it really easy to get there and answered questions promptly.
