Costa Rica Canopy Tours
by Infocostarica Staff Do you remember the movie MEDICINE MAN, starring Sean Connery, and if you do, do you remember the scene where him and the other scientist (his romantic interest, of course) go flying through the treetops of rainforests hanging from harnesses tied to ropes, well, that is what a canopy tour is all about. If you are planning a trip to Costa Rica soon, then read on to become better acquainted with this popular Costa Rica sport. Although Canopy tours, a.k.a. zip-line adventures are a relatively new phenomenon, their real origins date back to the 1970's when the rain and cloud forest canopies were the last remaining frontiers of intrepid scientists. According to our research the technique was developed by scientists in the US to study the canopies of trees in forests there without disturbing the life in the limbs and trunk by having to attach ladders or climbing equipment to the tree. Using disciplines common to adventure spots such as rappelling and spelunking, scientists quickly discovered the unique benefits of exploring the jungle canopy from above. Apparently it was not until a few years ago that scientist were able to study the canopy ecosystems in great depth through the use of this technique, and once it was developed, the rainforest became the optimal target for its use due to its large and complex ecosystems. The technique has been successfully used in the Bilogical station La Selva in Costa Rica for this purpose.

Humble Beginnings On The Rise The Big Time ... E-mail Updates
Humble Beginnings
The Aquo founders are extreme sports participants or fans. We all share the passion of extreme sports whether it be canopying, snowboarding, skydiving and more. We were sitting around one day at an event watching all the sponsors do their thing, and while they seemed successful, we agreed something was off: their flavors weren't original or didn't own up to their healthful, green messaging. Aquo was born. We own up to our message that Aquo is invigorating, refreshing, delicious and healthy. And, it's green friendly. We use only organic ingredients and natural flavors versus chemically enhancing them. Take a swig and you'll see what we're talking about. Aquo is, ultimately, the green extreme sports fanatic's dream come true.
Aquo Today
Aquo has taken on a life of its own. Aquo sponsors about 50 extreme sports events around the country and is sold at convenience stores, drug stores, fitness centers, super markets and specialty markets across the U.S. Aquo is also involved with many non-profit events for active children and adults with disabilities.
Aquo Tomorrow
We will only come up with new drinks when we feel the need to, not just to compete with our competition or to gain press. Each of our drinks has a personal story and we won't just create one for the heck of it. Aquo will continue to sponsor extreme sports events and non-profit events that we believe make the world a better, greener, more enjoyable place.

Loading Map Map your own trip! Map Options Show trip route Hide lines Granada Nicaragua Friday, June 29, 2007 For our final day in Grenada we decided to go Canopying (activity where you zip line between trees at various heights). We have come across many places where you can do this but we finally decided to do it in Nicaragua as it was cheap, and we got to see a coffee farm as we did it right in the middle of one! We drove for an hour on probably the bumpiest road that exists; it was more like a dried out river bed than a road! After recovering from the drive we got kitted up for our zip line frenzy. Michael wasn't sure whether he was going ahead with it all as he isn't the keenest when it comes to heights. We all got briefed beforehand below the first zip line. Unfortunately a bloody bee of some sort decided to sting me on my arm. I was quite distracted from the pain so I didn't hear much of the brief :-S (luckily it was pretty simple)
We ascended the first ladder and started zipping over to the next tree Final platform, the abseil tree

Adventurous tourists have a new sport enjoy. These tourists can now explore the rainforest treetops by canopying. This is an up and coming new sport that is accomplished either by visiting a canopy walkway such as the one found in Peru or by going from tree to tree on steel cables while suspended in a harness as in Costa Rica . This sport originated from rappelling and developed by United States scientists as a way to study the canopies of trees in forests with out disturbing the life in the limbs and trunks with ladders or climbing equipment attached to the tree. The canopy walkway extends one hundred fifteen feet above the forest floor and extends one third of a mile through the rainforest of Peru. This walkway provides a view of the rainforest that is impossible from walking on the forest floor. The view from the treetops has a definite vantage point for observing Amazon wildlife and vegetation. Even though this walkway is extremely high, it is very accessible for everyone and requires no special skills or equipment for the tourist with this adventure in mind. Spread among fourteen of the area’s largest rainforest trees, the canopy walkway in Peru is among one of the world’s longest canopy walkways.
