When we arrived at Now Jade, one of the first questions I asked the wonderful concierge manager was what excursion she would recommend if we wanted something adventurous. Her response: Xplor. That finalized our decision.

We went on Monday, and it was one of the most fun things I’ve ever done (and I think the boy agrees). P.S. “the boy” is short for “the boyfriend” in case you were wondering. ☺
It was very crowded, but it was an easy process to get checked in and get our helmets. We were given a wristband when the bus came to pick us up at our hotel, and we had to wear it all day because it allowed us to eat and get back to the hotel.
By the way, Now Jade doesn’t make you wear wristbands all week like some all inclusive resorts. This, to me, is a huge perk. They also don’t make you have a towel card. You can pick up towels freely, and we were even able to take two towels to Xplor. By the way, the towels are huge and comfy. Perfect beach towels.
What is Xplor: It’s basically a theme park, but not the kind you’re imagining.
Ziplines: It has two courses with 13 lines that make up 2.2 miles (with a maximum height of 148 feet). We did the “dry” course first, but you get wet at the very end when you zipline into the water. The wet course was our favorite. In the middle of it, you get to go down a huge toboggan slide. So much fun.
|Yes, you have to wear the helmets the whole time.|
|The heart makes a beating noise. It was|
actually kind of annoying after a while. But
at least you knew where you were.
