The kids loved it! I took my 10 and 8 year old and they had a great time. I don't think they appreciate the views as much as I did but the zipping across the top of the forrest definitely thrilled them.

I did this on a day trip from Quito, but would have loved to stay in the area. I know about the past, but I was impressed with the safety focus and the competence of the two men who helped our group of four - two 20 yo, one 58, one 68. All four did the ten zip lines and... More

I held my tongue about my accident with this company hoping that we could settle medical issues on the side (nope). Now that I read about the horrible death a few months ago I am speaking out. This company is TERRIBLE!!! We were the first group of the day and apparently (I found out later from the owner himself) they... More

I went to this establishment as they claimed to have a spotless record of no injuries or deaths, that is kinda important to me as I have never zip lined before.... Now that I read the reviews they did in fact have a death just a little over a month before, had I known this I would have not went.... More

Please think twice my dear friend was killed because the cables were not inspected and they broke. Be aware that while Mindo and the attractions are great there is no regulation doing canopy. What is worse there is no emergency rescue team, emergency site treatment or a specialized doctor who can help if something bad happens in the town, in... More

It was amazing. We did this with two guides who went before and after us. Though they hadn't a huge amount of english they made sure we knew exactly what we were doing and that we were enjoying it. The views were spectacular and it's a real thrill. I'm not sure that regulation exists or if it does it's not... More
