The Same Tired Routine

Are you bored?

Think about it. It’s the same routine every day.

Alarm goes off. You take a shower. Eat breakfast (if you’re lucky). Head to work all day. Get stressed. Come home. Make dinner for the family. (Scratch that. You’re too tired to make dinner.) So you call Chinese take-out.

Put on the news. Shake your head at the nonsense. Watch a TV show.  Put the kids to bed. Yawn. Head to bed.

And do the exact same thing tomorrow.

And the day after. And the day after that.

The weekends? Well…they’re not much better. Sure. You’re off of work, and that’s great. But you’ve already gone to all the bars and restaurants downtown.

And let’s face it…there was never really much to do downtown anyways. How many weekends in a row can you go bowling?

The Big City…Yikes

You’ve thought about packing your bags and heading to the big city. That’s where everyone else goes when they’re bored. And sure…there are lots of things to do in the big city. No doubt about that.

But still…it’s a big city.

And with big cities come big crowds of people. Usually in very tight spaces. And we all know what happens when you pack tons of people in small spaces. People get edgy. Heck, you may even call it rude.

You’ve gone to the big city before. You felt cramped. No. You felt downright claustrophobic. Nobody said ‘thank you’ or ‘please’. It’s just a different world than what you’re used to.

Selvatica Adventure Park in Cancun

Isn’t there a place to go, that’s exciting AND not the big city?

You know…some magical place that brings the best of both worlds?

And then you remember Mike from the office. You overheard him the other day talking about his crazy adventure in Cancun, Mexico. Ziplines you heard him say. Didn’t he also say “ATV’s in the mud”?

Wow. Ziplining in Cancun! Now THAT would be an adventure of a lifetime, you think to yourself. In fact…a crazy jungle adventure in Cancun may be just what you need to wake yourself up from sleepwalking through life.

So you look for tickets to Cancun. Wow. Are they really that cheap? Then you look at Trip Advisor. You find Cancun, and then Outdoor Activities.

5-Step Guide to Ziplining in Cancun with a Fear of Heights

5-Step Guide to Ziplining in Cancun with a Fear of Heights

Mexico is a paradise that brings millions of tourists from all over the world for two reasons: beautiful beaches and incredible adventures like ziplining in Cancun. For many, it’s both.

You can start off by unwinding at a white-sanded beach. That’s great…for a moment. But before you know it, you’re going to get excited. You’re going to crave adventure.

Then someone in your group says “hey, why don’t we go ziplining?”

Everyone agrees, but in your head you’re thinking “what is a zipline?”. More importantly, what does ziplining feel like?

Sure. You wanted adventure, and ziplining in Cancun certainly represents that. But now you’re worried about something: can I go ziplining if I’m afraid of heights?

Don’t worry. That’s perfectly normal actually. In fact, many people face fears before they zipline.

heights are not that bad for ziplining in Cancun

Here are some of the most common questions people have before they go ziplining in Cancun:

  1. What is the weight limit for zip lining?
  2. What do you wear to go ziplining?
  3. Does ziplining feel like a roller coaster?
  4. Are ziplines safe/fun/scary/dangerous/difficult/boring?

The truth?

  1. Each provider has different limitations, so check beforehand.
  2. Something light, athletic and comfortable (no skirts).
  3. Not normally, but Selvatica has a one-of-a-kind zipline called Tarzania that IS exactly like a roller coaster.
  4. Ziplines are safe, but you have to be careful. Everyone has fun on a zipline. Scary? To some yes. But most simply find it exciting. It is not dangerous but you must still be cautious. Anyone can go ziplining, even kids. There is no ‘difficultly level’. Zipline are many things, but ‘boring’ isn’t one of them.

Now that we got most of the common questions people have before ziplining out of the way…

Let’s focus.

In this guide, we’re going to teach you how to zipline in Cancun with a fear of heights.

Ready? Here we go.

1.-Pick an established zipline tour operator

Obviously, you need to pick a reputable company. Not some shack that sprouted up yesterday. A tour company with a trusted history.

In Cancun, that tour company is Selvatica. No one has been in the zipline business longer. Over two decades of experience, in fact.

What does this mean for you?
It means they know what they’re doing. They know NOT to purchase harnesses made in China. It’s this approach that’s earned them a certification for safety from the Association for Challenge Course Technology (ACCT).

Need further proof?
Go to Trip Advisor and type “Selvatica”. You see how an eye-popping 98% of the reviews are either “Excellent” or “Very Good”?

Still not convinced?

Consider this: We’re so committed to our customer’s safety and entertainment, Trip Advisor has named us “Best Outdoor Activity in Cancun” 5 times.

It’s true. When it comes to ziplining in Cancun, no one is more of an authority than Selvatica. Period.

awesome day at selvatica the best adventure park in Cancun

2.-Show up and get to the top

Remember, arriving is half the battle. It’s ok to be afraid. This is about facing your fears and having fun. The first and most critical step? Making the decision to go. Once you’ve made the commitment, stick to it. No matter what.

Just know this: when it’s all said and done, you’re going to wish you had done this much sooner in life.

But reaching Selvatica is not enough. You have to climb to the top. This can make some people nervous. It’s simple. Just keep breathing nice and slow.

This brings us to our next stage.

3.-Don’t Panic and breathe

Easier said than done, you may be thinking. Actually, it is easy. All you have to do is breathe. That’s it. Take long, slow, deep breaths. Take your mind to a place where you feel confident.

Understand this:

You don’t have to do anything. The outcome is not determined by your effort or skills. Selvatica has true and tried equipment that is tested frequently. Allow their experienced staff to take care of everything.

Speaking of which…

4.-Find somewhere that knows your name

What does that mean? It means you need to pick a place that will pay you personal attention. That’s the biggest advantage Selvatica offers.

Let me explain.

Other places simply collect your money, hand you a ticket, and wish you good luck. Sure, there are operators at each zipline. But they stay at that zipline. You have no guide that goes with you for the whole journey.

Someone who knows your fears and situation. Someone you can trust.

You see…

When you’re at Selvatica, you’re not just another ticket sold. You’re part of the tribe.

5.-Don’t over think it—Just do it

Let’s face it…this isn’t about ziplines or heights. This is about conquering fear itself. Bravery built today will stay with you forever.

Think about it. Decades later from now, will you remember that morning you spent drinking at the beach?

Or will you remember the triumphant day, when you, yes YOU, conquered your fear of heights by ziplining in Cancun at Selvatica?

Finally. Stare fear in the eye without flinching. Join the tribe.

Visit the best place to zipline in Cancun and book a tour with Selvatica.

We’ll make sure you conquer your fear of heights.

awesome day ziplining in Cancun
