One of the great things about having visitors is that they encourage us to explore the tourist activities that we otherwise think we are too busy to experience. During Emily’s visit, I did just that by throwing in the towel at work one day and heading 5 minutes down the Chocolata to Da Flying Frog Canopy Tour. It was a last minute decision to go and Da Flying Frog was able to pick us up at the Aurora Office in town and drive us to the base of the zip line, located on the border of a farm.
Upon our arrival, the guides gave us a quick tutorial and we headed up the hill in the Jeep. The Canopy tour starts at the top of a hill, providing commanding views of the Bay of San Juan, the Pacific, and town below. Once hooked in, you zip between 17 platforms connected by 16 cables, located high above the treetops. The longest cable is 328 meters; the highest one passes over a canyon measuring 70 meters deep; and at the fastest one you can reach a speed of 70 kilometers per hour.
This is a fantastic way to see San Juan from above – don’t miss out on the opportunity when you visit!
