Founded in the year 1994, Rainforest Adventures has been very busy focusing on our adventure parks, but that hasn’t taken any of the spotlight of the eco-systems we are protecting. 2013 was a great year for our conservation efforts; we worked to protect migrant bird habitats through the Caribbean and launched two new hiking trails through private protected areas.
Staff Spotlight: Kevin Shank

What’s going on in the Rainforest Adventures Parks?
If you’re heading to Costa Rica this year, make sure you ask our guides (either within our Atlantic or Pacific park) about any recent Tapir sightings.
Rainforest Adventures Mystic Mountain Jamaica celebrated its 5th anniversary in 2013, and has unveiled a new half-mile hiking trail through the park.
The whole country of Jamaica was delighted to see the Jamaican athletes compete in the Olympic Games in Sochi. 2014 marks the first year since 1988 that the Jamaican team participated in the bobsleigh event. Being inspired by this sport, you can head down to Jamaica and try bobsled experience in the tropical jungles of Jamaica within Mystic Mountain.
After winning the 2013 Certificate of Excellence from TripAdvisor, the team at Rainforest Adventures St. Lucia is looking forward to an even better 2014.
The Jacquot Trail Hike, named after St. Lucia’s proud symbol, the Jacquot Parrot, is proving to be one of the most popular attractions of 2014. This interpretative hike takes guests through St. Lucia’s rainforest to marvel at the diversity and beauty of the natural surroundings.
The Panama Canal was officially opened on August 15, 1914. That means that this year, the Panama Canal is 100 years old!
This historic site is being expanded this year with construction due to be completed in early 2015. Make sure you come down this year to see the original on one of our Colonial Panama and Miraflores Locks tours.
Thanks everyone and see you soon!
