Local Discounts for Rainforest Adventures this Creole Month
There are few Saint Lucians on the island who haven’t already heard of ‘zip-lining’, that vertigo-defying activity that involves harnessing up and flying along a steel cable from platform to platform, invariably screaming with enjoyment as you go. What many may not know is that Rainforest Adventures at Chassin Babonneau is the island’s leading ziplining destination, welcoming every year forty thousand visitors with a thirst for soft adventure in an idyllic setting.
Well-established and respected in the local community, the company employs over ninety permanent staff, more than two-thirds of whom are from surrounding communities in Babonneau. Employees are trained and educated in the ecology of the area and the history of this particular rainforest, as well as the flora and fauna, with every bird and blossom described in enlightening detail by enthusiastic guides.
To celebrate Creole Heritage Month, Rainforest Adventures is inviting all Saint Lucians to experience the adventure park and its fascinating eco-tours at over 60% discount through an initiative called “Rediscover Rainforest Adventures”. During the month of October post-tour patrons will be treated to samples of local juices, cassava bread and confectionery items like guava cheese, fudge and tamarind balls in a colourful Creole setting.
There’s a unique combination of action and relaxation to choose from, including the Adrena-Line Canopy Tour which comprises ten zip lines through the oceanic rain forest at heights of over one hundred feet.
For the less energetic nature lover, there’s the Aerial Tram gliding silently through the lush lower canopy, all the way to the top of the mountain where a wonderful panorama is revealed before the spectacular journey back down to home base.
Those who like to hike are offered a bracing trek through rainforest trails studded with ancient trees and giant ferns, while the Ultimate Three tour allows the really adventurous to experience the whole package in one day.
According to General Manager, Daryl Raymond: “Rediscovering Rainforest Adventures promises to be a truly family-friendly day out! We are excited to welcome Saint Lucians to the Park at Chassin during Creole Heritage Month. This extraordinary offer will allow guests to experience our unique and exciting eco-tours in the natural beauty of the rainforest, coupled with a taste of our Saint Lucian culture.”
