On Saturday we set out for San Ramon for our ziplining canopy tour. San Ramon is in another province, about 90 minutess from San Isidro. As we rode in the bus we could see the weather becoming wetter and cooler as we drove up the mountain.



Once we got there, we suited up in harnesses, helmets and gloves. The system they have here is probably safer than any I've seen before - you don't actually fasten and unfasten the caribiners yourself, they have employees stationed at the start and stop of every line to do it for you. In addition to the zip lines, there was also a 'Tarzan' swing and a 'Superman' line, where you put on a body length harness and fly like Superman! Everyone had a blast - the zip lines were fun and the scenery was breathtaking!


Afterwards we went to a carretera, or cart factory. It was over a hundred years old, and they gave us a tour showing us how the wheels used to be made, including a bandsaw powered by a huge water wheel. It was very impressive. They also had a souvenir shop where the kids took advantage of for a little last minute shopping.
