You will be picked up from your hotel, home or vacation rental and drive to the foothills of the Rincon de la Vieja volcano area. Here you will gear up and begin your zip line canopy tour that includes 9 lines and 17 platforms with most of the zip lines taking place over the river canyon offering incredible views.

The longest line is 300meters and there's a hanging bridge crossing the Colorado River Canyon. At line 6, there is an opportunity to rappel and rock climb the rock face alongside the Colorado River. After lunch you'll change clothes and head for the class 2/3 river. You'll have the choice of either rafting in the two-man raft with your own personal guide behind you to maneuver the rapids, or use an inner tube.

You'll go over five miles of class II and III rapids on the Colorado River surrounded by breathtaking scenery. Along the way you can stop at a calm portion of the river to rock jump and rope swing into the river. Then, it's time to relax at the volcanic mud baths and natural hot springs. Cover yourselves in warm volcanic mud, then rinse off and climb into the natural hot springs from the Rincon de la Vieja volcano. This is a great way to end your adventure.
