  • We had a wonderful morning in the park of Ixpanpajul. Had the day before had our receptionist called there, who has organized a shuttle (included in the entrance fee) for us for the next day at 7.30h. We would be picked up on time in Flores and taken there. We chose the Skywalk and the Tarzan Ziplines, which cost a total of 500Q for 2 people. The Skywalk is done alone, 3km through the jungle over many stairs, which is not quite untiring in high humidity and hot temperatures, but is definitely worth it! We were apparently the only visitors so early, we had the jungle for us. We were able to discover some howler monkeys right at the beginning, as well as a snake, many insects (absolutely bring mosquito protection), nasal bears and many different birds. In addition, from the 6 suspension bridges you have a great view over the jungle! Afterwards we were taken by a driver via an adventurous trail to the ziplines, there two guides took great care of us, trying to tell us something about nature in Spanish. The Zipline tour lasted a total of about 45min and was a lot of fun. Afterwards we were taken back to Flores by shuttle. Overall really a great morning. The only shortcoming: no one speaks English there, so a few chunks of Spanish are helpful, in case of need with their hands and feet ;) Tip: In the morning, it should rain there often.

  • It's an age thing probably, but because 2 of us did the 6 zipwire 'tour' we ended up near the top bridge and walked down from there crossing a number of rope bridges to the bottom. I am not sure I cou...  more »

  • Nice park, we did the skywalk (1,5hrs) and the canopy (30-40mins). I would recommend to go around 8am for the skywalk and then do the canopy as it will get hot later in the day. canopy is fun but pretty short, don’t expect too much if you‘ve done a nice one before. It’s pricy all in all BUT check prices online before as they tried to overcharge us quite a lot (178 instead of 125qx) and stick to that. Transfer from Flores is included (10mins). Would do it again!
  • entrance is 25USD for the "skytrail" and another 30USD for the ziplining which I felt really expansive. Still they take you back to Flores for free
