Mombacho Canopy Tours

This weekend we took a trip to Mombacho, a nearby volcano, to go on the canopy tour. We ziplined through 15 platforms in the trees! Some of us were nervous at first but after the first ride everyone was having a blast. Our group included 5 other volunteers, and then two girls from New Mexico who signed up to go on the trip as well. The guys running the trip let us ride the ziplines a few different ways, the most exciting being upside down (estilo de mono "monkey style"). After the trip we went to try some of the coffee grown on Mombacho, and though I don't really like coffee, I drank a bit and it wasn't bad. Definitely an enjoyable morning, followed by a relaxing afternoon here in Granada.
