Just a regular ride, not added value to the experience itself, pricey and food was standard, souvenir shop with high $ prices, staff was nice and helpful.

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

This is most definitely not a zip line, more of a slow ramble through the tree tops. It is very low key, but you can learn a lot from the guides and what you are paying goes to help maintain the Preserve. I liked it.

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
