We enjoyed our morning on this fairly easy hike. We saw a deer, a toucan, a coatimundi, a squirrel, a vulture, a small snake, and a big spider (but, sadly, no monkeys during our visit). I definitely recommend a guide, as we would have missed all of this without his practiced eye. The guide also shared interesting information about the... More

As we like to do more active type of things, this seemed like a good way to take in the Rain Forest. The trail is quite extensive and takes between 45min - 1hr to complete. The bridges offer great views of the forest canopy. We really didn't see much in terms of wildlife but it doesn't surprise me as they... More

Went yesterday with a guide who was quite passionate about the place - which was great. The bridges were amazing! Not fun if you're afraid of heights though so be aware if you go. Didn't get to see a ton of wildlife. Maybe Bc we went in late afternoon. Wear sturdy shoes.

This was an unique way to experience the upper canopy of the rain forest. Our guided tour through the rainforest was wonderful, as our guide was informative and passionate about the environment. We saw many beautiful birds, hollering monkeys, an Eyelash Palm pit viper, and Leaf cutting ants as we traversed the paths of this beautiful rainforest via suspension and... More

Clean and well-maintained trails that took us about an hour and 45 minutes to finish. Very relaxing and beautiful scenery. Worth the time and the money for a couple of hours easy hike.

If you are in the area you have to do this! It is a great walk in the rainforest. we didn't do a tour, we walked it ourselves as we had kids ages 6 and 8. Loved every minute of this magical hike through the rainforest. Go first thing in the morning!

This place would be lovely but it is so crowded. It was full of loud and inconsiderate tour groups who were more interested in shouting at one another than appreciating the surroundings. We had a great guide who did his best to give us a good experience but even he seemed disheartened by the crowds. Unless you can visit very... More

Loved the hanging bridges- kind of scary as the bridges away but beautiful views. Hike is pretty long and Ricky but worth it. We saw monkeys 🐒
