There is the old threat about running away to join the circus. Now you can live vicariously through your little ones as they have the chance to fly through the sky under the supervision of talented and capable trapeze masters at Kaicitos Circus. Located at the eXtreme Hotel, Kaiceitos has drop-in flying trapeze, trampoline, and tumbling sessions for all ages, including children as young as 4! The best part about Kaiceitos Circus? Adults can scream from the sidelines, sip on a drink at the on-site restaurant Casa Mami, or take a dip in the hotel pool situated right next to the trapeze. More info on schedules and prices available on their website. If you are interested in trying a little flying yourself, you can do that, too.
