This tour was absolutely the most exciting thing I have done thus far. When mom decided it was time for another adventure, we packed our bags and grabbed our friends. We boarded a boat, early in the morning and headed for the Belize mainland to hike through the jungle interior. I was age 7 at the time.
I didn't really understand what we were about to do, but everyone was excited to see what the day would bring. We entered the facility and our group was assigned to an individual guide. The guide helped us to get our harnesses, helmets, gloves and gear on, that we would be using for the morning. We then took a brief walk into the jungle for a short distance. There was a little climbing involved, but we soon arrived at our first platform high in the jungle tree tops.
As each member of our group jumped off the platform, I soon knew my turn was next. I just did what I saw everyone else doing. When it came my turn to jump off the platform, to feel myself flying through the air (high in the jungle tree tops), the pure excitement of it all, caused me to wet my pants. I look back on it now, and laugh. You can tell by looking at the photos, that I was having the time of my life.
This is definitely something out of the ordinary, and I really enjoyed doing this. When I go back to the States, I am often asked, what it is like to do this. I would recommend this tour to any family (who does not have a fear of heights). I'm sure you will enjoy it as much as I did.
