The Fly Zone
“The clearest way into the universe is through a forest wilderness - John Muir.”
Learning to Fly
What time do we open?
OK so you are not a member of the Heartbreakers but that’s ok, you can still learn how to fly with us. Come with us on our Fly Zone where you are going to soar 35+ feet off the grounds, soaring between majestic 200-year-old mango and mahogany trees via a series of ropes, cables, and suspended bridges. There are many other obstacles as well and we can promise you a good time as well as a fair amount of perspiration.
On our tour, you are on your own, traversing our forest canopy from TREE, yes, to TREE, where you can pause, reflect, discover, take a selfie with a monkey, interface with an iguana, or listen to the call of the rare West Indian dove.
You see, on our tour, you’re IN the trees, REAL tropical trees, very much like the ones scientists utilized while adapting this method of forest discovery in Costa Rica decades ago; a method which has minimal impact on the biodiversity of the tropical forest that you’re immersed in.
Make no mistake, there ARE zip lines which are sure to give you a thrill, BUT, that is not our focus. The real focus is the forest. And, as we all know by now, forests, especially tropical forests, are vital to our survival.
YOU, will discover something that cannot be found anywhere else on the island, and WE, will continue to protect and preserve our tropical forest through your participation. That’s called a win/win.
And if you happen to prefer having your feet firmly planted on the ground, we have miles of trails throughout our tropical forest which pass next to our spring fed source, through the ruins of an ancient sugar plantation, and into the windswept heights of Pic Paradis, St. Martin’s highest point, awarding the best views on the entire island.
Afterwards, you may elect to relax by our gorgeous spring fed swimming pool with your favorite beverage, or simply join us for lunch in our open-air restaurant.
We provide the choices. You make the decision. And as you know, « sometimes, it’s the smallest decisions that can change your life forever. »
