Experiencing Ziplining In Jamaica
Ziplining in Jamaica gives you a whole new perspective on life.
Just picture it. You strap in (safely!) to your harness while an enthusiastic guide with a huge grin double checks your straps. Then, you take a deep breath and plunge off of the platform, leaving her smiling behind you.
OMG it’s amazing. With the lush jungle underneath you and the wind in your face, ziplining in Jamaica will soon be your favourite memory.

What we are not talking about is choosing an unsafe company to do your zipline Jamaica with! Make sure you do your due diligence before you go!
Things to look for when choosing a safe zipline experience:
- Recognition by safe local agencies
- Reviews on the company’s website
- A website that shows their customers having a good time
- Active social feeds because it’s always nice to know they’re on top of that sort of thing. Hopefully if they care enough to post to social, then they care enough to upkeep their equipment!

What To Know Before Your Jamaica Zipline Adventure
Come wearing comfortable clothing, and remember that they will be strapping that strap-thing on your tushie so definitely don’t wear a skirt.
For the gentlemen, make sure your shorts aren’t too tight. You know, those short, European-type ones that show off a bit too much of the junk? Yeah, those may not be the most comfortable. Or flattering.
If you choose to go to Chukka tours, they do a really great job of hooking you into safety lines for your entire tour. They even do this when you’re standing on the platforms and going up the stairs just for extra safety!
If you think about it, you’re so high in the air that one slip could be deadly. Or just really dangerous but it totally depends on how far up you are. But we don’t want to focus on that!
Just enjoy all the different routes as you leap from tree to tree in all of your flights over the rainforest. You’ll get the opportunity to zip right through the opening of a tree!
Before you go, however, remember to keep your legs tucked up tight to your body so they don’t hit branches. That too could present problems.
Look out for the moss hanging off of the old-growth trees, and witnessing the density of all of the lush vegetation from above!
