This is a zip-line across the river Guadiana between Spain & Portugal. Its a great idea but its all over too quickly! I wish we had done it twice.
Limitezero office, in Sanlucar de Guadiana in Spain, faces the river, next to a cafe - I know this sounds easy to find but it's not easy to spot!
The road was being dug up on the day we went (4th Oct 2017), which sent the sat nav into a tail spin! We decided to park our hire car on a side street and wandered around for 10 mins before asking a local where the office was.......only to find we had 'circled' round the office!!!
Having arrived at the office it was all very simple, everything is explained in detail. We were driven to the top of the hill, where there is a launch platform. We were given full instructions and, one by one, sent across the river on the zip line.
One review I read complained about the strap, that attaches you to the zip line, hitting the person in the face at the breaking point on the Portuguese side (which is quite sudden!) I must admit the strap did touch my face but not hard enough to worry me. My suggestion would be to keep your head slightly to the left because that's the position that is suggested for the best photograph, which is taken by an independent photographer on the Portuguese side of the zip line. This is an additional cost but you are not obliged to purchase the photo. The photo is in download format on the website and is available for 3 month, or so we were told. (I've only been home 5 days and have accessed the photo a number of times from various electronic devices i.e. phone and PC - NB the photo won't download to an ipad!)
Once down and released from the harness, we had a short walk to a local cafe, whilst watching other people enjoy the zip line across the river, before taking the ferry back to Spain. The ferry runs every few minutes and is included in the zip-line price.
From Alcoutim, on the Portuguese side of the river, it looked like you could buy tickets for Limitezero from a kiosk called Fun River?
There is a minimum age but not a maximum one to go on the zip line. It is not difficult but you do need to be able to lift your feet up whilst in a seated position. You need to hold onto the pully at all time, so you are unable to take photos or hang onto anything else. The actual zip-line journey lasts about 1 minute - its all over too quick. I wish we had a second go!!
