On our recent trip to the Dominican Republic, we decided to splurge on two excursions. The problem was picking what to do! There were so many fun activities to choose from that it was tough to narrow down our options. We knew we didn’t want to pick the same excursions that we experienced on our Jamaican honeymoon, but otherwise, we couldn’t make a decision!
As I was planning our trip, I learned about Scape Park at Cap Cana. It was just 15 minutes up the road from our resort, they offered a 10% discount for booking online in advance, and they had free transportation to and from any Punta Cana area hotels. But what sold me on the Scape Park was their full-day package. For just $150 per person, we could choose 3 activities (instead of only one), and we would also receive a free lunch! We selected the Hoyo Azul Eco-Tour, the Cave Expedition, and the Zipline Eco-Splash. By the way, this is not a sponsored post. We genuinely enjoyed our excursions and cannot stop talking about how much fun we had!
I’ll share more about the Hoyo Azul and the Cave Expedition in my next post, but today, I want to talk about our ziplining adventure!
I had been ziplining a few times before (I was a camp counselor at a Girl Scout camp one summer) but didn’t exactly enjoy the experience. I hate heights with a passion. Andy, however, had never been ziplining, unless you count Air Assault school 😉 For a soldier that has his Air Assault wings and wants to go Airborne, he also is not fond of heights. So, we knew this would be an exciting experience for us.
The zipline course had 12 zip lines; some of them were single ziplines while others were tandem (where Andy and I could zip line beside each other.) Unfortunately, there aren’t any photos of us “racing” on our separate zip lines! The only pictures of us on the ziplines are from the very first one.
It felt like an obstacle course at times! At one point, we had to crawl through a cavern and then climb up the side of a mountain (we were harnessed, of course.) We were told to wear our swimsuits under our clothes and some water shoes for our ziplining trip, and at the end of the excursion, we learned why. Our very last zip line was ziplining into a swimming pool!
Although my husband and I are still wary of heights, ziplining at Scape Park was a blast. It’s one adventure we will never forget!
Have you ever been ziplining?
