Adventure seekers and adrenalin junkies around the world will be flocking to experience a Costa Rica adventure that will knock most peoples socks off. In the southern pacific zone of Costa Rica above the Osa Peninsula in the Fila Costena mountains engineers are busy constructing what will be the longest Superman Line in the western hemisphere.
At over 2 kilometers in length it will be approximately twice as long its closest competitor in Costa Rica. The ride will last around 2 minutes and will reach a top speed of 55 – 60 miles per hour. Riders will strap into a harness that holds them in a prone position and begin their rapid descent from 3,000 feet elevation and end the ride at 2,000 feet elevation.
The cable will zip the rider over the top of the rainforest canopy. In other sections the zip line will drop into the trees and go through tunnels cut specifically for the ride. It all makes for an experience that will leave most people breathless and wanting more.
The superman line will be located on the property owned by Osa Mountain Village Resort. OMV as it is called by residents is already home to one of the most talked about canopy tours and waterfall rappelling tours in Costa Rica. Plans to build one of the longest water slides in Costa Rica are also in the works.
The various tours are all run by residents that have purchased Costa Rica real estate in the form of villas or homes sites within the Osa Mountain Village Resort development. Some investors have bought a 4 week fractional share in the development just to be able to take advantage of the Costa Rica business opportunity that lies there.
The local residents have been very supportive of the sustainable community where all of this is taking place. Many locals are now working at the development helping with construction, maintenance or food production in the permaculture area.
The resort community offers travelers a place to experience adventure at their door step while staying in nicely finished villas at affordable rates.
