What can visitors and tourists expect to experience at Rainforest Adventures?
Visitors have many opportunities to explore the surrounding rainforest by boarding an aerial tram which is available both in St. Lucia and Costa Rica Pacific. The SkyExplorer chairlift in Jamaica takes the tourists 700 feet above the rainforest, complete with the additional views of the picturesque shoreline, affording guests a captivating bird’s-eye view of the resort town of Ocho Rios and turquoise waters of the Caribbean Sea.
In terms of exhilarating activities, nothing beats an experience of flying down the canopy zip lines, gliding from platform to platform in the jungle. In St. Lucia, visitors can add more thrill to zip lining by doing it under the moon-lit night sky.
In both Costa Rica and St. Lucia, bird enthusiasts and individuals who are looking to satisfy their curiosity on different birds can grab their binoculars and start spotting out a variety of species found in the tropical rain forests. While in Jamaica, visitors can witness nature’s frequent fliers -- the hummingbird -- up close and personal in the park’s hummingbird garden.
And of course, the signature attraction of Mystic Mountain could not be missed by the tourists. Heading down fast the mountains, the gravity-powered bobsled ride is an activity inspired by the Jamaican Olympic bobsled team.
