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

Our guide was good at point out various plants and animals of the jungle. There is also a butterfly house you can visit... More

You'll notice I didn't say 'exciting'. Most people do not find this ride exciting because the chances of seeing many animals & birds are slim. BUT, the opportunity to glide through the rain forest at heights of 75 to 140 feet is quite amazing in itself! Our nature guide was very knowledgeable & was quick to point out & describe... More

We wanted a place within 1 1/2 hrs. of SJO to stay our first night. We reserved a room at Rainforest Lodge, just past Braulio Carrillo National Park. It turned out that we were the only overnight guests that night. Our guide, Leo, came to the front gate to load our luggage and take us to our bungalow. Since it... More

If you're in Costa Rica you have to try zip lining at least once. It was so much fun. There are a total of 10 zip lines, with a bonus Adrenalin line you can pay extra for. The view from on top of the forest canopy is amazing and you really get moving on some of the longer lines. Don't... More

Less stressful to saredy-kats of hights than any chair ride because it's low half the time and a gondola carrying up to 7 people. Be prepated to see little sights of exotic animals unless you're lucky. They have a stuffed snake adder displayed on a leaf at the start just to entice you you take plenty of photos. Plenty of...

Wow, what an experience this was, gliding through the rainforests. I was shaking my head over how amazing these rainforests were, and how anything could be so beautiful. I felt like I was back in prehistoric times and half expected to see a dinosaur go running by! Our tour guide, Juan Miguel, was very knowledgeable and really made the experience... More
