The countryside of the Dominican Republic is so beautiful, we knew there had to be some fabulous zipline tours. I researched Trip Advisor and found
the top-rated tour closest to us in Puerto Plata, Yasika Adventures.
We contacted Toby, our taxi driver, to take us to the village of Yasika, located about one hour away from Puerto Plata. The ride to the site was a tour in itself, traveling through farmlands and hillside villages.
We arrived at the tour site and were promptly greeted by our guides, Jose and David. We registered, paid our $75 fee and we were ready to get started. We had our own private ziplining experience.
David fitted LA with his ziplining equipment which consisted of a helmet, a harness with a pulley attachment, leather gloves, and safety lines.
All geared up and ready to go! Our guide, Jose, checked our gear before we left the tour site.
We got in our taxi and drove about 10 minutes to go further up the mountain to the first zipline platform. The platform had a beautiful view of the mountainside.
We climbed up to the platform and received a demonstration of how the zipline worked. There was a small zipline inside the hut for practicing.
