Is Ziplining Safe?

The most commonly asked question people ask before their first zipline experience is if it’s safe. 

Safety is our top priority, and part of being the best zipline in Cabo is being the only one in the area that offers double-security zip lines that comply with international ACCT standards. 

Additionally, we use industry-leading equipment and have experienced staff that oversee your adventure for your peace of mind. Here is a breakdown of the regularly inspected equipment we use:

  • Helmets: Our helmets are inspected to ensure they are free of cracks or damage to give you the best protection from potential head bumps. Our guides will make sure that the helmet is properly situated on your head before your ride. 

  • Harness: Our guides will make sure that your harness fits properly, feels comfortable, and is free of any broken stitching or other damage. The harness allows you to attach to the zipline via a rope attachment, and there are different harnesses for different weights.

  • Lanyards, Carabiners, Pulleys, and Trolleys: These are all parts that work together to carry you down the zipline safely Like with all of our other equipment, our guides will make sure every part is free of damage and ready for you to use. 

Before your scheduled zipline tour, you’ll receive a briefing, and you’ll be guided the entire time throughout your adventure. Our staff will also be able to answer any questions you may have about the lines and the adventure in general.

The only thing we want you to worry about is having a good time trying something new! 

Health Safety Precautions

While our zipline adventure is completely safe, your health plays a role in whether you can participate. If you suffer from conditions that may cause extreme dizziness, you may want to hold off on the adventure. Additionally, expecting mothers should also refrain from any high-thrill adventures. 

Other Safety Tips

For a better and safer experience, it is extremely important to leave behind anything that can fly out of your pockets during your ride, especially expensive equipment. This includes your phone — no matter how excited you may be about taking photos while you’re in the air, it is advised that you refrain from doing so and give the adventure your full attention.

Our zipline adventure is quite the opposite of scary!

This thrilling adventure offers a rush of adrenaline, and while you may be scared of going on your first zipline, the experience itself is sure to leave you wanting to go again. The initial fear of heights and speed tends to dissipate just seconds after you begin making your way down the zipline, and those feelings are replaced by joy, excitement, and adventure! 

It helps that our guides give you the proper training and inspect your equipment intensely before you begin the activity, which only puts your mind more at ease so you can enjoy the adventure of a lifetime. 

How To Dress For The Cabo San Lucas Zip Line

Dressing appropriately for your zipline adventure is important for a comfortable and enjoyable thrill ride. We recommend that you wear long shorts or pants to your adventure, as well as clothes you don’t mind getting dirty — the desert can get pretty dusty. 

As for footwear, tennis or hiking shoes are highly recommended, as you’ll be walking over uneven and rocky terrains, plus, you don’t want to lose your shoes while ziplining! 

You should also wear sunscreen and insect repellent since you’ll be outdoors for the entirety of this adventure.
