Soar through the jungle
Your adventure at Los Veranos Canopy Tour begins as our friendly, bilingual driver takes you on a complimentary scenic drive along the southern coast of Banderas Bay. From our air-conditioned van or open-air Mercedes jungle cruiser, you’ll enjoy fantastic views of lovely beaches, palatial ocean-side villas and the craggy monoliths of Los Arcos, one of the most recognized landmarks in Puerto Vallarta. Upon arriving at Los Veranos, our staff will give you a detailed safety briefing, taking you step by step through your upcoming canopy tour before securing you in a professional climbing harness.
We will then you walk through the tropical jungle while our expert guides share their knowledge and point out coffee trees, vanilla vines, exotic orchids and the agave plants used to make tequila. The forest is alive with bromeliads, philodendron, strangler figs and tree-bound termite nests used by migrating parakeets to house and feed their chicks. You’ll be amazed by the profuseness of flora and fauna that co-exists here in Los Veranos.
A short five minute walk through the jungle foliage brings us to a spiral staircase that rises safely to the first platform, where you are tethered while awaiting your turn. The first three cables are practice runs, designed to slowly introduce you to the zip lines and inspire confidence. Using the highest quality safety equipment, you will gently glide on a steel cable to the first tree platform. You will enjoy breathtaking views of the jungle canopy and forest floor. Expert guides on each end of the cable will put you at ease and soon any fear of heights you may have melts into the beauty of your surroundings. Very few people get a chance to experience this kind of encounter with nature.
As you zip from tree to tree on a total of 14 cables, the magical wonders hidden from the ground are revealed – the longest cable is 400 meters long! Our zip lines, affectionately called “Banana Split”, “Speedy Gonzalez” and “The Big Enchilada”, are designed to gradually take you higher and faster. As you travel at speeds of up to 30 mph. you’ll find yourself gliding over a dramatic river gorge until the final cable shoots you over the river rapids to our riverside palapa bar. At the end of the tour, our friendly bilingual staff will greet you with a complimentary, ice-cold soft drink. Alcoholic beverages are available for purchase at our Tequila Bar which includes over 100 varieties of tequila (ask for a taste) or you can enjoy scrumptious Mexican food and specialty drinks at our restaurant. Additionally, you can spend the day relaxing in the river and enjoying the natural water-slides. Photography and video staff is on site to capture your visit.
