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.

Until…

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?
