ziplining in Cabo, PV or Mazatlan??

Recommended Posts

Does anyone have ziplining experience in one of these ports?  If so, please tell me about it.

No specific experiences but I can share what I know. Puerto Vallerta has been in the zip-lining business the longest. They have offerings that compete very well against places like Costa Rica. But research is the key here. You have to find a company that offers true tree-to-tree zip-lining. Some only offer tree-to-ground lines. There is one that also offers rappelling down a waterfall as part of their package but this is seasonal since there needs to be sufficient water flow.

 

Not a lot of knowledge regarding Mazatlan but I think they have only recently gotten into the game.

 

Cabo is a completely different experience. Cabo is desert meets the ocean. There is no rain forest in Cabo. What there is are dry desert arroyo's that you zip-line across. So you are completely out in the open flying above a canyon. A different experience to be sure. The company "Wild Canyon" has been in business for awhile and is well established. There are over 2000 reviews on TripAdvisor and the company was awarded TripAdvisor's Certificate of Excellence for 2019. This is a very active experience so you do have to be reasonably fit. It's also a dirty, dusty experience so the clothes you wear will not be usable for the rest of your cruise unless you get them washed. Older clothes are probably best.

 

Lots of video's on YouTube for the different zip-line experiences.

 

Hope you have a blast.

We used Vallarta Tours in Puerto Vallarta.  They have one that includes a speed boat, mules, zip lining and rappelling.  It was a lot of fun!

I'd do PV, hands down! In the jungle and many to choose from. And after zipping up there, you can do more stuff like swim, ATV, Tequila Shops, etc. You can make it a whole day.

We are going in March 2021 on Royal Princess. They don't have any zipline excursions in PV. I looked into Vallarta Adventures but they won't book directly to cruise passengers. I've read that if you try they may want to see proof that you are a hotel guest. Even if we did try, the time we are in port don't work out. I've currently booked a zipline in Cabo but still doing research as I think PV has better zipline experiences.

My son and I went ziplining in Mazatlan with Huana Coa Canopy Adventure.  It was a great time.  There were 10-12 different lines over the agava fields.  The trip also included tequila tasting at a distillery.  You can find reviews on Trip Advisor.  They are highly regarded, very safe, and most of all fun.  Highly recommend.

I did the Extremely Extreme Zipline with Vallarta Adventures and it was a blast.  Make sure to take lots of bug spray since the no-seeums are bad.
