There is good news in the south of Spain for those with a sense of adventure: the zip wire in Casares has just reopened to the public again after being closed during the pandemic, and about 20 people couldn’t wait to take a ride on the first day, Sunday.

The highest point is 90 metres above the ground and the wire is nearly 300 metres long. “You don’t have time to feel afraid,” Víctor Román told SUR. He now runs this attraction after the company which previously held the concession had to close down because of the pandemic. He also runs the municipal paddle surf school in Casares.

The zip wire is regulated by Casares council and the Junta de Andalucía and there is no age limit to use it, although anybody who does so must weigh no less than 40 and no more than 110 kilos. It costs 12 euros, and there are discounts for families or people in possession of a youth discount card. And if anyone is feeling nervous, he insisted that there is no need. “It only takes 30 seconds,” he said, reassuringly.
