The Simple 5-Step Guide to Finding the BEST Cancun Zipline!!

You know why you’re going to Cancun. And it’s not the reason everyone else thinks either.

It’s not because you want to get drunk with spring breakers…You’re past that phase now.

You realize there’s more to Cancun. A lot more. (You see? Not having a hangover is enlightening—I’m talking to you spring-breakers =)).

You realize Cancun is the adventure capital of the world. It’s where adrenaline junkies feel free. Where you can feel like you’re on recess again. And that’s what a Cancun adventure is all about.

Making you feel like a kid again

But where are the best Cancun adventures? The answer’s obvious. The best adventure is a jungle adventure. Why? Just simply BEING in the jungle is an adventure. Then you add some one-of-a-kind extreme activities…and now you’re talking about shrinking a bucket list.

Now you’re talking about ziplines, ATVs, Bungees, and Cenotes. Now THAT’s the ultimate jungle adventure.

But how do you find the best Cancun Zipline?

You may ask yourself: Is there really a difference? Aren’t they all the same? (the answer’s no, but we’ll explain more later)

We’re going to show you where the best Cancun zipline is. Not only that, though. We’re going to explain WHY as well.

This way…when you come to Cancun, you’ll know where best to get your jungle adrenaline fix.

Here is Selvatica’s Simple 5-Step Guide to Finding the BEST Cancun Zipline!

Ready? Great, let’s start!

1.       Handheld Zipline (Do-I-have-to-let-go)

Ok. Let’s start off nice and slow ok? But don’t worry. We’re going to build up the intensity level each time. And you know what? We got something special waiting for you at the end. So hang in there.

The first zipline involves the use of your hands. No, seriously. Just lean back and use the catcher’s mitt-like glove they give you, to hold on. Tighter the squeeze…the slower you go.

The idea is to just let gravity take over. Don’t squeeze. At least not yet. Enjoy the ride. A bird’s eye view like this is rare. Soak it in. As you get to the other side, you start to squeeze your hand. You’ll slow down, and that’s it.

Your first zipline in Cancun! Nice!

But don’t get too cocky yet…we’re just getting started.

2.       Cenote Zipline (Splish-Splash)

Now it’s time to let loose and have a splash. Literally. Put on a life vest. Then sit at the edge and hang on the bars.

Here’s a tip: Don’t jump!

It’s not the worst thing in the world if you do. It’s just not the best way. It bounces up harder than you’d expect.

Here’s the best way to zipline into a cenote. Just walk off. THEN…at the end, you do a flip. Or whatever you want. Doesn’t matter. You’re landing in the water either way.

This way, you stay in control of your excitement.

3.       Superman Zipline (I-believe-I-can-fly)

Come on. Just admit it. We’ve all felt this way before. We’ve all wanted to fly. You know? Like Superman. Soaring through the air and seeing everything.

Alas, we’re mere mortal humans. No wings. No feathers. No red cape.


The ultimate Superman simulation experience came around…better known as the Superman Zipline.

Get ready…because it’s your turn to go…FACE-first!

4.       The Upside-Down Zipline (Look-mom-no-hands!)

Ah yes. The upside down effect. Turn anything WAY cooler by doing one thing. Flipping it. Or reversing it.

Here’s an example. Walking upstairs? Boring. Walking upstairs on your HANDS? That’s viral.

Same principle applies to ziplining. Do it upside down. Trust me. You’ll see.

Ziplining upside is one the best ways to zipline in Cancun.

5.       Tarzania (The CRAZY Human-Roller Coaster)

Finally! Drum roll, please. Yes. This is the moment we have all been waiting for patiently.

The BEST way to zipline in Cancun.

They call it Tarzania, The Human Roller-Coaster. This is no ordinary zipline. This goes left. Up. Down. Then back up again. Then right.

Tarzania really is zipline that’s more like a one-person roller-coaster.

And you can ONLY find it one place…

…Selvatica, Cancun’s #1 Adventure Park for 20 years.

You see? I told you those drunken spring-breakers are confused. Let’s face it. You can get hammered anywhere. And plus, you’re not going to remember any of it anyways.

But this? You’ll forever remember the day you conquered 5 EPIC ziplines in Cancun’s #1 Adventure Park, Selvatica. And don’t forget… THAT’s what Cancun’s truly all about.

Best Cancun Adventure is Selvatica [5 reasons why]

There are two reasons why millions of tourists flock every year to Cancun: for beauty and adventure. It’s easy to see why. Everywhere you look, there’s something gorgeous to look at. Everyone knows about the soft-sanded beaches. There’s also the piercingly turquoise waters. Let’s not forget about the sparkling cenotes throughout.

But Cancun is more than that…

There’s also a vast Mayan jungle daring you to conquer it.That’s the other side of Cancun. The side that invites adventure. Like we said, there are two ways to enjoy Cancun: looking (beauty) and doing (adventure).

Some people don’t like adrenaline. Others demand it. It’s their way of ‘feeling alive’. For fans of extreme excursions, Cancun is your playground. Here, you can be free. Unshackle the chains of polite society.

The question is:

When the Mayan jungle beckons, do you answer the call?

For those who shout ‘yes’. Please proceed. We’re going to let you in on a little secret.

For those still unsure: don’t give up yet. Nothing summons the spirit like, adventure. This is the perfect proving grounds for conquering fear.

So step up to the plate. This is your chance to have a jungle excursion in Cancun.

But where you may be asking?

If you’ve been here before, it’s obvious.The best Cancun adventure is Selvatica.

Look’s look at 5 of the best reasons why that’s true.

1.-Insane ziplines over a jungle canopy

Where’s the best place to zipline in Cancun? Selvatica! Selvatica is the premier adventure park in Cancun. Situated in the heart of the Mayan jungle, at Selvatica, anything is possible.

And that includes…

Soaring through the air, over a jungle canopy, upside-down on a zipline!

That’ll wake you up!

Need more? Try Selvatica’s vaunted Tarzania Zipline. Not all ziplines were created equally.

Let me explain:

Most ziplines follow a single path. You start at the top, and gravity takes you down. Not Tarzania. No, Tarzania blazes its own trail. First, you go down.

But guess what? Now you’re going back up again. Then left. Then right.

It’s truly is zipline madness.

2.-Get Muddy on a badass Polaris ATV

Think back to your childhood. Remember when you could run freely through the mud? Return to your youth. Selvatica grants you license to ‘get dirty’ again.

Here’s how. Hop on a Polaris ATV. Here’s a tip: make SURE it’s a Polaris.

What’s the difference? Ever been on a buddy’s beat-up pickup truck? You know. Where the suspension is shot and you can feel every bump on the road? Then you drive a Cadillac and it feels like you’re driving on a cloud.

That’s the Polaris difference.

It’s not only that, though. It’s instant acceleration. The stop-on-a-dime brake system. And if anything happens? You have state-of-the-art roll bars for protection.

With nothing to worry about, the Mayan jungle is yours to conquer. One more tip: when they offer you a pair of goggles….wear them! The last thing you need is mud in your eye!

3.-Don’t look down! Hanging Aerial Bridges ahead

Do you have a fear of heights? The ability to stay calm when it matters most? Then prove it.

Walk, high up in the air, over wobbly hanging aerial bridges. But what if you fall? Fear not. You’ll be strapped up to a cable of course!

But don’t let that fool you. Even though you know you’re not in mortal danger, it still gets your heart racing.

4.-The fountain of youth is real: they’re called Cenotes

You know that feeling? The one you get when you come out of the shower after long grueling day? There’s nothing more refreshing. It’s completely reinvigorating. And how couldn’t you be?

Just a moment ago, you were filthy and worn out. Now? Full of life and clean as a whistle. Now take that feeling…and multiply it by a 100. That’s how you’ll feel when you exit our cenote. Remember, by this point, you’re going to be covered in mud, sweat, and exhaustion.

Think about it: is that how you want to drive home?

Instead, hang on to a zipline and enter our cenote with a splash! Is that too easy for you? Need something bolder? Try diving headfirst off a 60-foot ledge! Speaking from personal experience, if you do the big jump, point your toes downwards.

Just trust me on that. =)

Jump into the fresh cenote water and make a splash


5.-Make a difference in the world with our ‘Seed of Life’ program

What’s the Selvatica difference? Here, you’re not just another ticket sold. We’re in this together. When you’re here, you’re part of the tribe. We have your back. Your tribe leader will be with you for the whole journey.

Every year, we thank the jungle. Why? Because without the jungle, there is no Selvatica. Every year thousands of trees are cut down. The worst part? They’re being cut down faster than they’re growing.

Together, we can help. It’s easy. Place a seed in an expired helmet. Then dig a hole, and place the helmet inside. That’s it. With this simple project, we have shrunk our carbon footprint by MILLIONS of tons. 7.8 to be exact.

Honor the forest. Without it, there’d be no Cancun jungle adventure!
