ZiplineI used to think traveling with little kids was expensive–until I started traveling with teens. Rainforest Sky Rides St. Lucia knows how expensive it can be to travel with teens.

They eat everything in sight and they always want to do the most expensive things–zip lining, jet skiing, parasailing. If it offers a rush and costs a lot, teenagers are the first in line to sign up.

Unfortunately, we’re not headed to St. Lucia for our summer vacation. But if we were, we would be taking advantage of this deal from Rainforest Sky Rides:

Through Sept. 30, one children under 17 per family can receive one complimentary excursion at the remarkable rainforest park in St. Lucia’s vibrant Chassin highlands. They can choose from:


•           Aerial Tram – Open-air gondolas transport passengers past majestic trees, brilliant clusters of flowers and flirtatious birds.

•           Tranopy Tour – Guests ride the zip line through the verdant rainforest canopy, then enjoy a short hike and gondola ride back to base camp.

•           Adrena Line – The park’s newest attraction inlcudes a short hike followed by 18 platforms of rushing zip lines, plus a Tarzan Swing and Boa Rappel.

Freebies are limited to certain days and each child much be accompanied by two parents. Minimum age for zip lines is 12 years.
