Almost lost my arm because I jumped the WRONG way in my Costa Rica trip a couple of years ago. For those of you who never tried bungee jumping before but plan on doing it in the future.... remember, jump outward, like you are diving into a swimming pool..
Warning - Avoid a Terrible Bungy Accidents ** DO NOT ** jump straight down like a jack knife, this would cause you to bouch with an up and down motion and the cord to bunch up around you body which you risk getting it tangled up and snap off your arm causing a bad accident. Big Fail! Diving outward makes a swinging motion which is much safer and won't cause any bungee jumping accidents.
They also tell you not to drink any alcohol before jumping, we had to take a few tequila shots for breakfast. One thing I would suggest is to chug a beer right after they lift you up from the bridge, all of the blood is rushes to your head when you are hanging upside down, so shotgunning a beer right after bungee jumping gives you a nice little buzz.
I has uploaded this video back in 2009, but had to re-edit it because I had some background music that I wasn't licensed to, so now it's reuploaded with some different music.
San Jose, Costa Rica is home to the 2nd longest bungee jump in the world and the largest is around Cape Town, South Africa.
