Rainforest Adventures Park Locations Awarded By TripAdvisor with 2013 Certificate of Excellence

TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence 2013
A day in Rainforest Adventures is often described by guest reviewers on TripAdvisor in words such as: fantastic, a complete blast, the best day ever, awesome, very fun with beautiful grounds, a wonderful tour, fun on 11 different levels, good family fun, and simply “WOOOHOOO!” Having an “awesome tour guide and beautiful sites” as quoted by reviewers, three park locations of Rainforest Adventures has received a TripAdvisor “Certificate of Excellence” this year of 2013.

With each gaining an average of 4.5 stars review ratings, these locations are: Bobsled at Mystic Mountain in Ocho Rios (Jamaica); Rainforest Excursion Tour (St. Lucia); and Rain Forest Aerial Trams in Jaco (Costa Rica Pacific). In order to qualify for the Certificate of Excellence, businesses must maintain an overall rating of four or higher, out of a possible five, as reviewed by travelers on TripAdvisor. Additional criteria include the volume of reviews received within the last 12 months.

What can visitors and tourists expect to experience at Rainforest Adventures?

Aerial Tram in Costa Rica

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.

Zip Lining in the Rainforest

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.

Jamaica Bobsled

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.
