8 Reasons Why the Best Ziplining in Playa del Carmen Happens at Selvatica
Better Zip lines
Most places in or near Playa del Carmen have one standard kind of zip line. Essentially you find yourself repeating the same experience over and over. Not exactly exciting, if you know whats coming next right?
But Selvaticas Zip lines? Thats a whole different story.
5 Different Zip lines at Selvatica
Lets take a look at each to see whats different.
a) Tarzania: The Human Roller-Coaster
Tarzania is no ordinary zip line. Think of it as a super zip line, or even a human roller-coaster!
This multi-directional zip line will always keep you guessing.
Do you think you have what it takes to fly through the air several yards above the jungle canopyupside down?!
Its not as easy as you may think.
But if you can muster the confidence, you get an extreme rush of adrenaline you are sure to enjoy.
Whats the best way to conclude a zip line? With a refreshing splash into a blue cenote.
The fresh water will cool you off, and allow you to do flips in the air. If you choose to, of course.
d) Airborne Superman
Everyone has felt like doing this at one point in their life.
Sail through the air just like Superman did. This face-first approach is the ultimate way to enjoy a zip line.
Prefer to slow things down and enjoy the view? Squeeze your glove just a bit.
Want to speed things up and go full speed? Just simply loosen your grip.
No matter your preference, Glove- Control gives you what you want.
Better Natural Atmosphere: The Untamed Mayan Jungle
As you can see from the pictures above, Selvatica is in the natural Mayan jungle. Theres nothing artificial or synthetic here (unlike some of our competitors).
Returning to the jungle is a primal experience. Why? Because it sets the perfect tone for an incredible outdoor adventure.
Better Customer Service: The Selvatica Tribe
Whats the biggest difference when you come to Selvatica versus our competition?
Its the customer service. Here
Youre not just another customer. Youre part of the tribe.
What does this mean for you?
It means you are paired into groups (or tribes). Each tribe gets a tribe leader. They will give you the confidence you need to enjoy yourself. If you have any questions or concerns, they will answer.
Theyll even call you by your name!
Better Organization= No Long Lines
The best part?
Your tribe leader coordinates with other tribe leaders. What does this mean for you?
It means not everyone goes to the same activity at once (this happens frequently at other parks.) Dont be surprised if you have to wait 30-60 minutes just to ride ONE zip line.
At Selvatica, youll never frustrate yourself waiting forever. In fact, everything will advance like clockwork. That means more adventure and less standing around.

Heres a tip:
If you want raw power. Avoid the competition. Say no to glorified golf carts. And say yes to serious all-terrain vehicles, whose ATV DNA cannot be questioned.
Got the guts?
Some people say they do. But then they walk up to the edge and look down.
It takes a special someone to say the heck with it, Im jumping!. This bungee swing will reveal your true colors.
Which type of person are you?
Youve seen it a million times on TV. A wobbly old wooden bridge in the jungle.
Now your chance to finally cross it. The Skywalk tests your fear of heights and sense of balance.
Heres a tip. Dont look down!
Whats the perfect way to cap off an adventure in Playa del Carmen?
Diving headfirst into an invigorating & fresh cenote.
