Ecotourism offers an alternative to the morning jolt.
This morning before heading out on a long bus ride to Talca, we enjoyed an exhilarating ride on the Tirolesa (zipline) at Cascada de las Animas. After a safety briefing, we watched our guide fly across the raging Maipo River. Then, two by two, we followed. The two short rides that we enjoyed (one each way across the river) were better than any cup of coffee to get the adrenaline pumping in the morning.
