PV has various zipline companies. Check e.g. https://canopyriver.com/

Their office is a short cab or busride from the cruise terminal, from where they will transport you into the mountains.

Thery have an awesome large hanging bridge too.

Another populair one is Los Veranos.

Recently there also was a discussion about ziplines, just scroll down a bit on this forum.

Puerto Vallarta is the place to go zip lining for sure.  Vista Paraiso is by far the largest , all dual lines and they transport you to the top of a mountain. The other zip line areas you hike up a hill not a mountain. A couple take a mule part way. Vista Paraiso has a massive 460 meter vertical drop 2 and a half times that of Canopy River and Los Veranos.  Don't be fooled like I was with misleading zip line totals that count side by side lines or ones like Los Veranos that now list there zip lines in feet and have overnight stretched there zip line totals magically by thousands of feet compared to when they used meters. Best to look at the YouTube videos. Zip line operations can lie about there zip lines in length but they can't lie about duration time in seconds  of their zip lines. Los Veranos for example has 8 zip lines that only last from 5 to 15 seconds each in duration. 15 to 80 meters. Vista  Paraiso's zip lines average 485 meters each and  over 35 seconds in duration. Los Veranos has Zero.  Some zip lines totals in meters that you actually go on, Vista Paraiso 4848, Canopy River 2630, Los Veranos  2500. Speeds in kph, Vista Paraiso 75 kph, Canopy River 55 kph, Los Veranos 48 kph.   Vallarta Outdoor Adventures was ok but they have other things like mules, repelling and water slides. The zip lining portion of Vallarta Outdoor Adventures is quite small at only 1300 meters. They don't let people take videos or use Go Pros because they don't want people to see online  how embarassingly small there zip lines are. Pretty smart. I went  from the cruise ship with Vallarta Outdoor Adventures believing the hype and fancy brochures. Nobody told me they were the most expensive, had the most expensive photos and had by far the smallest and shortest zip lines. My own fault for not doing proper research.
