We did the rain forest tram ride in the morning and it was quite good - the views were excellent and our guide did his best to point out birds and butterflies but as most people will know most of the creatures of the rainforest are nocturnal so we weren't really expecting to see many in mid morning. We did... More

We rode the Rain Forest Ariel tram as part of a full day tour with TAM. This was our last stop after going on a boat trip on the Sarapiqui River (the boat guy was great & we got to see howler monkeys, iguanas, bats, Cayman, birds etc) and also a trip to Selva Verde Lodge (we saw frogs, camouflage...

The butterfly garden was really neat. Our guide "Jonathan" was very friendly and entertaining. He was very knowledgeable about the rainforest. He was only our guide through the butterfly garden and walking part. The aerial tram was ok. Very slow and boring. Didn't see any wildlife. Our guide for that part was nice but she didnt seem as knowledgeable as... More

Given the saying "seen one rain forest...". However, the tram part provides a different perspective and the view looking level and down from the tree canopy is very interesting. The attraction is about an hour and half drive from limon. We skipped the zip line (too short a time) and opted for the comfortable, sit-down tram tour, a good choice.... More

We were on a Holland America cruise. The Coach ride was about an 1 hour and 45 min. On the way, we saw several banana plantations and beautiful scenery. The driver spotted a sloth and a tree full of Howler monkeys. He even pulled over to give us a better view. The guide was very knowledgeable, we learned a lot... More
