This was a 10 hour excursion also including a river tour. This was the only of 6 tours we booked through our Princess cruise that we were glad we went with Princess instead of on our own. We could not have done this on our own. The guide was excellent. Sadly, a rare exception in our experience with Princess cruise... More

My father and I took this tour while on a Princess Cruise. The drive from the ship to the rain forest is about an hour and a half by bus, so be prepared for that. Once at the Rain Forest you board an Aerial Tram that sits 6 + the tour guide. The guide was very knowledgeable and we learned... More

Located near San José, this place is highly recomended for people that loves nature, birds and trees. The aerial trams are safe, in excelent conditions, this guide called Graivin was very kind with us. The real time in the aerial tram takes one hour and a half ( 45 minutes each way). After that you can choose to eat at... More

The Rainforest Aerial Tram is well worth the drive to the National Forest. The tram takes about 90 minutes. There are 6 passengers and a naturalist guide. All of the guides are extremely knowledgeable and personable. The tram takes you through the rainforest at a lower level on the way up the mountain then at a higher level on the... More

Had a great time in the aerial tram. It included a short film introducing what is being done to protect The rain forest. The tram goes on two levels and the guide is very I formative. It is a wonderful 70 minutes spent. If you can go very early in am as more opportunities to see birds. We have done... More

We went through the National Park to get to this aerial tram. What an amazing feeling gliding over the rainforest in the quiet tram. We saw an ant eater, a very rare bird(blends into the tree) and many species of trees and plant life. Walking through the trails afterwards with Carla, our guide, will forever be one of my highlights... More

The trip from San Jose is nice when you enter the area of the National Park of Braulio Carillo, really amazing. The tram tour took about 1 hour and was wonderful to see one of the highest diversities in a forest in the world.. Guide was so knowledgeable and kind. We had a buffet lunch, simple but very good.

This was a great way to see a tropical rain forest up close and personal without the danger of creatures eating you. Our guide Kenneth was very knowledgeable and personable. It was an incredible experience for everyone in my family--including 5 kids ages 10-16. Highly recommend it. Make sure you drive the amazing hwy 32 from San Jose to Guapiles.... More

There only six riders in a tram plus a guide. So getting your question answered was great. The time of the tram was approx. 2 hours . There were washroom on site. The jungle was very lush. Our guide was good at point out various plants and animals of the jungle. There is also a butterfly house you can visit... More
