How it Works
A harness and an ultra-resistant steel cable are used to help you defy gravity as you take in the sites and soar through the trees of the Panama area.
Because of the fact that it is just you, a harness, and a cable it is important to make sure every safety precaution is taken. That is why qualified canopy tour operators like Melia Panama Canal are preferred. The equipment and the steel cables that canopy tours use can easily resist the size of any human. The harness supports 2,000 pounds and the cable, 10,000 pounds.
How to Prepare
It is suggested that you where long pants, a sweater, boots or any other type of closed shoe. You want to cover as much exposed skin as possible. Most tours will let you bring a child over six, but it is fair warning that a young child may change their mind once on the platform.
Overall canopy tours can be an amazing thing to share with your family on your tropical Panama vacation or anywhere else in Central and South America. Make sure you prepare and understand exactly what you are getting into before you take on the task, so that you can be assured a great experience.
