10 Critical Things You NEED To Do Before Ziplining in Cancun

We don’t get to have one majestic view of everything beneath us. We’re not allowed to have that experience. Darwinism forbids it.

The result?

We’re stuck down here. We just have to accept it. Our only hope? To imagine what it’s like as we watch a bird soar freely above us.


The zipline arrived! This changed everything. This meant regular human beings could experience a bird’s eye view! Finally! Take that Darwin!

Today, there are amazing zipline operations all over the world. Do you want to find out where the top 11 ziplines in the world are?


Let’s go through the Top 11 Ziplines in the World.

This zipline is truly one of a kind. Most ziplines have only one direction. Down. But not this zipline. This zipline is more like a roller coaster.

A HUMAN roller-coaster.

You can go up, down, left, and right. Pretty nuts, huh?

There’s really no other zipline in the world like it.

2. El Monstruo at Toro Verde Adventure Park

El Monstruo, or “The Monster” just opened in December 2015. What’s so special about it?

Ok. Let’s do this then. Here’s what you had to do. Go online to your favorite airline and check for tickets to Cancun. Who knows? Maybe try an aggregator site that lets you compare many different airline prices…you know? Like Kayak or something.

You see? Not as expensive as you expected huh? Well, get used to that feeling. Cancun is the king of great value. Not only that, though…

Cancun is the king of adventure.

And that’s what we’re going to find out. We’re going to find out if you can handle Cancun’s best extreme adventures. Still game? Good.

So get your passport. Bring your go-pro. And here’s a tip. Don’t forget your bathing suit (we’ll get to that later.) Most important of all? Bring a winning spirit!

Remember…once you get to Cancun…we’re going to see what you’re made of

Great! Now that you’ve arrived, let’s get things going…in OVERDRIVE.

All you have to is climb the stairs. Now that we’re up here, there are 2 ways down. First way down, is walking back down the stairs (BORING!).

But there is a second way. You can strap on…and go bungee jumping in Cancun!

Having second thoughts huh? Oh, come on! You didn’t travel all this way to walk down a flight of stairs right?

Here’s some advice

Take 3 long deep breaths. Release slowly. Then turn around—without thinking—just jump!

Whoa! Do you realize you just went bungee jumping in Cancun? Great job! And guess what? We have it on camera so you can relive it again and again.

Admit it. TOTALLY worth it to come to Cancun just for that one moment right?

But it gets even better than that. Because here at Selvatica Adventure Park, the fun is just beginning.

Here are 3 other adventures for you to conquer (now that you’re here and all.)
1.       Jungle ATVs like a Polaris!

If you haven’t heard…a Polaris ATV is not just any regular ATV. It has the most insane suspension you’ve ever felt.

What does that mean for you?

It means when you see that jungle pothole; you don’t swerve. You hit the pedal to the metal. The tight curve coming up? Don’t worry. You got this.

Remember…its a Polaris ATV we’re talking about. (I just feel bad for the jungle mud.)

2.- 5 Different Types of Zipline

Yup. Count’em yourself. There are 5 ziplines just waiting for you.

Now you see, most people think all ziplines are the same. Nope. Each one features something unique. Some are more intense than others.

Ready to take on all 5 ziplines, no matter what?

For now, let’s go through them all.

First, you have the classic, glove-controlled zipline.

Then it’s the Superman zipline. After that, you have the upside down zipline. Let’s not forget the INSANE Tarzania…that’s like a human roller-coaster (but actually a zipline).

Then there’s one more zipline…which brings us to our last adventure…

3.       A Refreshing Cenote to Cap everything off

After all, that adventure, you’re going to need to clean yourself off. Let’s just say, mud-flinging fun has a price. (It’s called cleanliness.)

But what are you going to do? Take a shower?

Come on. We’re in the jungle. Land of adventure.

Here, we dive into a cenote…straight from a zipline no, less. It’s the way of the jungle.

And if you can make it to the end, consider yourself part of the tribe. The Selvatica Tribe.

So could you do it? Could you make it to the end, no hiccups? Imagine putting check marks on half your bucket list!

But where in Cancun can you find the best adventures? Where is the best place to zipline in Cancun?

That place is outdoor adventure park, Selvatica. Let me give you 4 wild reasons why you should zipline in Cancun’s Jungle at Selvatica.

1.-Welcome to the Jungle!

Sure, everyone knows about Cancun’s beaches. But the real adventure is in the wild. In the jungle. Smell the jungle breeze in the air. There’s really nothing like it. Listen to the parrot’s squawk. Watch them spread their brightly colored plumage.

Listen to the parrot’s squawk

You see that dense jungle canopy over you?

In not too long, you’re going to be looking down at that canopy. You’re going to be looking eye-to-eye with those parrots. That’s the only way to zipline in Cancun. In the thick Mayan jungle.

Here’s where your spirit will return to its primal self.  This is where we all originated.

Welcome Home. Welcome to Selvatica.

2.-O.M.G. Is that a human roller-coaster?

Now that you’re pumped and ready to go, let’s have some extreme outdoor fun. Who has the best ziplines in Cancun? Selvatica!

Let me explain why.

Selvatica has the most insane zipline ever. No, really. It’s so crazy and wild, it’s more than a zipline. In fact, it’s more like a human roller-coaster.

Ziplines use gravity to pull you in one direction. Those are actually really fun. Selvatica’s extreme canopy tour has PLENTY of them. You can go upside-down. Face-first. It’s extreme entertainment at its finest.

But that’s just the beginning…

Introducing: Tarzania, the Human Roller-Coaster!

What makes this different? First you’ll go down. But then you’ll go up quickly. Then back down. Oh yeah, you’re also going left, but then right. This Cancun zipline is in a class of its own. There’s NO other zipline in Cancun even close to this.

If this zipline doesn’t make you go ‘AAAAAH’, you’re not alive.

3.-Wanna make a big splash? Zipline into a Cenote!

Who doesn’t love a cenote? They’re crystal clear. Refreshing. Clean. Best of all? No saltiness to deal with after.

Let’s face it: After spending a wild day in the humid jungle, you’re going to need some freshening up before you head back. Why not enjoy yourself in the process?

Picture this: You’re muddy. Sweaty. And super exhausted. And then you see it. A sparkling cenote just beckoning you to enter. But you’re not going to just walk in the cenote. You’re in Selvatica! Land of the wild. Home of the extreme. No. When you’re in Selvatica, you don’t back down from a challenge.

You walk up the stairs. Grab on the zipline and jump off and then SPLASH!

Now that’s how you make an entrance at Selvatica!
