Barb, we did this tour with Los Veranos last month, and I would heartily recommend it. It is TOTALLY safe, especially for your kids, of whom the guides seem particularly protective.
We were zip-lining in the same group as a vacationing family that included three kids, the youngest of which is a 6 1/2 year old girl. The two boys were probably 8 and 10 or so. They wear different harnesses than the adults do, and if there's any doubt about whether their weight will carry them across the zip-line, one of the guides will take them on a piggy-back ride. I was exceptionally impressed with the attention to safety.
It was a fun and exhilarating excursion, one of the best my husband and I have ever done. My kids (11 and 13) were not on this last cruise with us, but I will DEFINITELY take them here the next time we visit the Mexican Riviera.
