Fun facts About Ziplining and some less known

While you may not have tried zip lining yourself, we thought it would be fun to share a few facts about this fun adventure sport you may one day wish to try.Our expertise and resources give you an insider’s view on your Costa Rica vacation with exclusive benefits you cannot obtain on your own.

Ziplines are now common for many different occasions including family backyard get-togethers to entertain the little ones, as fundraisers, and even large birthday celebrations. In fact, some people have built mini ziplines in their back yards!

So, how long have ziplines actually been around? While there’s not much historical record of when the first zip line came along, there is ample evidence that people living in mountainous regions — particularly the Himalayas and the Alps strung up zip lines quite early in their culture to both traverse dangerous country and to receive and carry supplies more efficiently.

Safe Travels for Silvered Seniors

Taking off for parts unknown at the gray-haired stage of life is still a fun adventure and there is nothing to fear! It may be true that running, jumping for joy and endless flights of stairs are less enticing than they used to be, but there’s a very big world out there to see without resorting to a “bucket list” approach. Organizing  a  Multi-Generational holiday or traveling Alone with Your Grandchildren can be a Great Bonding Experience.

Think “safety in numbers” and go for it! (If you’ve decided that sitting at home gathering dust is more appealing than travel, well, we can’t help you there, granny.) If you think this article is going to talk about pouch belts under your pants to hide your passport, no, no, no; we have better things to discuss.

Zen Recreations is a fantastic solution for traveling at any age and we specialize in the safety-in-numbers approach. By the way, we’re all about the destination; we don’t cut off the fun to travel in herds. But we help with a number of things including locating solo travel deals (here you have the opportunity to share a room with someone who has similar interests), finding lower prices and looking for adventures and showing you the ropes.

Zen Recreations is not a tour bus with a uniformed guide at the front. We don’t say “and if you look out the left window you’ll see an old building.” (Well, sometimes, but not much because we have places to go and things to do!)

To counterbalance the relaxing parts of your trip, Montenegro offers plenty of outdoor fun, including abundant chances to get more than slightly wet. Jet ski, schmet ski,we’re talking about getting as wet as you can possibly get by taking a big dip under the water!

Even if you’re new to SCUBA diving, we’ll strap some air on your back and (safely and expertly) guide you to some sites and sights few people get to see.

These guided instructor-led trips where you do NOT have to be a certified diver are for SCUBA newbies and experienced divers alike —let’s go!

You can expect to see rays of sunlight shooting through the water, majestic kelp forests, colorful fish and an ocean floor full of fascinating creatures—all the stuff that landlubbers never get to see. As you glide over the bottom you can expect to play Peek-a-Boo with fish darting around the rocks and watch anemones waving to you with a zillion arms.

Want to see critters that look like they were designed by a color-mad fashion guru? Fish will certainly fascinate with lively colors not found on land animals and anemones are usually interesting balls of color, but there’s more…

Nudibranch, anyone? Pink, yellow, purple and amazing shades of blue! Like snails without a shell, these “sea slugs” crawl about on the bottom but you might also see some kinds swim by, waving their entire bodies slowly through the water.

In these waters, too, we’re fortunate to have dolphins  and  playful Mediterranean Monk Seal (Monachus monachus), some of whom come to visitors like a group greeting committee. Dozens of them will sometimes whizz by our group to say hello.

Whether you’re and experienced diver or a total noob, call some friends, plan your trip and explore our gigantic parks under the sea. We’ll see you soon!
