bucket list

Costa Rica (Day 5: Ziplining & Playa Blanca)

In Miramar we found the perfect balance of adventure and relaxation. We started our day with a bit of adrenaline as we headed to Adventure Park Ziplining Tour in Puntarenas. This was the longest zipline tour in Costa Rica, with a total of twenty-five zipline cables over eleven waterfalls. Fortunately, we had some great guides – they often encouraged us to let go of our riding saddles while we were ziplining and also demonstrated some stunts. After riding a few basic zipline cables, I decided to try some stunts myself, including a flip off of the platform. The view from the canopy was breathtaking.

Skydive Spaceland

I wanted to start off my travel blog with a bang, so why not start with skydiving? My husband, Alan, and I went to Skydive Spaceland in Rosharon, TX. This organization would later set the Guinness World Record for the greatest number of tandem skydives in one day at one location on September 27th, 2014. An interesting point I should note, is that they accomplished this world record title while raising money for the Children’s Cancer Recovery Foundation. Their event raised more than $48,000 for CCRF!
