Friday, March 13, 2020: Day 7

Waking up Friday morning we were so excited to finally have a day to relax! After four days of working in the communities and exploring Bocas del Toro, we had an opportunity to zip line in the tropical rainforest on Bastimentos Island where our resort is.

Waking up Friday morning we were so excited to finally have a day to relax! After four days of working in the communities and exploring Bocas del Toro, we had an opportunity to zip line in the tropical rainforest on Bastimentos Island where our resort is.

After climbing up a stairway into the trees, we got to experience our first zip line! After some screaming and overcoming fears of heights, we were on our way! There were about eight lines that we got to do, and the views were BEAUTIFUL (there are no pictures because we all left our phones back at reception so we didn’t lose them).

There was also a bridge made of wooden slats that we had to run across between two of the platforms, and then we got to rappel down a tree in the middle of the forest!

Lastly, we got to zip line upside down! After strapping us in, the zip line guides helped us flip upside down and we got to look into the sky and the forest as we ended our zip line adventure. It was a great way to start our last day in Bocas!
