Bastimentos Sky Canopy Tour. Neighboring Costa Rica gave the world the so-called zip-line canopy tour, and they have sprung up around the world, including here in the Red Frog complex on Isla Bastimentos. The concept: A series of cables, seven in this case with one up to 1,000 feet long and 150 feet above the ground, zip you from tree to tree, courtesy of helmet and very secure harness. This facility also includes a rappel line and a Tarzan swing. Though billed as a way to get close to nature and observe life in the rain-forest canopy—hence the name "canopy tour"—your screams of delight will probably scare away any animal life within a mile. Think of it more like a two-hour amusement-park ride. Reservations are required. Isla Bastimentos. 507/757–8021. www.redfrogbeach.com. $55; boat transport from Bocas town $4 one-way, $7 round-trip. Daily at 10 am, 1, and 3:30 pm.
