Fun for All Ages

Fun for All Ages

So who’s fit to go on such a daredevil adventure of soaring like a bird? Antigua Canopy Tours assures that anyone from the age of five an older can go, provided the participant possesses a reasonably healthy physical condition. That means even toddlers and grandparents can “fly” if they’re brave enough. Children under the age of 12 must be accompanied by a parent or someone else responsible for their care. Children under 120 cm in height (about 47 in.) can “fly” while physically attached to a guide. That being said, Antigua Canopy Tours Manager Pascu Robredo broke the rules just a bit and sent his 2 ½ year-old daughter on a solo “flight.” How did she do? Check out the video below:

That wraps up the series on Antigua Canopy Tours. Again, a huge thanks to Rudy and Manager Pascu Robredo!

    Ja-ja-ja-ja-ja…now you’ve done it, Laura. You’ve saved the best for last. I haven’t even watched the video yet, but this photo – la princesa en el equipo de volar (?) – this is priceless. I guess I cannot be “chicken” to try flying through the canopy any more, now that I’ve been shown up by a 2&1/2-year-old, Ja-ja-ja !
    Fantastica foto, Laura !
    The only picture that could top this would be … let’s see … maybe some tortilla ladies (Rudy: hint! hint!)

    • Actually, as you see in the byline, this photo was taken by Pascu… unfortunately there were no little kiddies around when I went. So props to Pascu!!

  • Yes indeed. It is fun for all ages. Once we had a british lady, 84 years old, who enjoyed the canopy flying as a child above the trees. Check:
    Brave girl!!!

  • Dear Laura: you have done an outstanding job letting people know about Antigua Canopy Tours. You have displayed with both beautiful pictures and writing the kind of “paradise” we work at. Nothing beats the feeling of sharing nature and thrill while viewing these amazing volcanoes in the land of eternal spring. Congratulations. What a great contribution to a remarkable blog as Antigua Daily Photo.

    • Thank YOU ALL for providing an EXCELLENT tour!!! 😉

  • Ah, hell, I’m going to have to do this some day… Last year I took a canopy tour in Petén, but this one seems quite interesting… Aaaaah, mmmm, definitely, ;O) (hey, and I’ve got problems with heights, eh)

  • I know, I know, I know… 😉

    @Laura – sorry, I didn’t read the byline – I was too busy watching the video of la angelita giggling after her solo flight. But to you, the series was great !
    @Pascu – muchas gracias. Que intrepida angelita !

  • Thanks Claudia and Eric for your compliments to Arantza (my daughter´s basque name). She had a great time.
