#SEEXPERIENCE: Ziplining in St. Lucia
As an avid adventure seeker, every time I travel one of the first things I do is either search out some really great spots to cliff jump (there’s something about the views and diving into the ocean that gets me every time), or I try out a local adventure I want to do to remember my trip by!
My most recent travels took me to the beautiful Caribbean island of St. Lucia and when in the rainforest why not zipline! I’ve ziplined a few times before both locally and in the Rockies but never in sights as tropical as these ones and let me tell you, the experience was absolutely amazing from start to finish.
After a short coursr on how to effectively zip down all 12 lines the adventure began. You would think that zipping is easier then it looks, but the truth is you have to remember to slow down before you stop and understand the line you’re about to zip to ensure you make it to the end to avoid getting stuck. You really want to avoid getting stack because as the locals say “we will point, laugh and take pictures of you”. Luckily I only had to experience the embarrassment once and in my defense it was a really long line, but I’m sure we all say that!
I always love remembering my trips by seeing the amazing sights and creating new experiences, especially ones that each location is known for. This is a great way to truly understand and live the culture in addition to food of course!
