Vuelo Extremo

Adventure Sports in The Pacific Slope

If you're into the whole zip-line thing, this is one of the better-value ones in the country, located almost exactly halfway between Retalhuleu and Quetzaltenango. It starts and ends with a terrifying 300m-long, 29m-high zip across the valley over the highway and then follows a circuit zigzagging down the hill on the other side.

For the fainter of heart there are some nice walking trails (Q25), crossing swinging bridges and passing by small waterfalls; and you can refresh yourself with lovely views over the valley in the cafe.
