We booked an English speaking guide, and the jungle was revealed to us! Her spotting scope allowed us close up views (and fabulous iPhone photos) of Pit vipers, tarantulas, dozens of birds, monkeys and more!

We did a guided hike on the hanging bridges with Jiro of Jacimar Tours. He was very friendly and knowledgable, and I learned so much about the forest and the wildlife. We spotted a tarantula, eyelash pit viper, howler monkeys, leaf cutter ants and tons of birds. The hike/walk has very little elevation change, so it's not strenuous. The path... More

The hanging bridges are so much fun! They sway as you walk on them! We saw a lot of different kinds of wildlife and flowers! Our guide was very helpful in pointing things out to us! We saw Coati, Howler monkeys, Capuchin monkeys, birds, poison frogs, etc. They have shorter trails for those that can't make the longer hikes.

this is guided hike through a interlock brick path, we did not see a single thing other than plants, no birds, lizards, monkeys nothing. Bridges are nice but in our group of 43 it was not relaxing or enjoyable, bridges bounce like crazy with all these people on at the same time. very expensive I could have walked around my... More

This is a beautiful place, but you'll get much more from the experience if you go with a local guide, rather than on your own. We went with Jacamar Tours, and it was a terrific trip. Our guide was Oscar, and he was very knowledgeable about the wildlife. The great thing about being with him was that he does this... More

Wow what an experience . A must to do !! We only did part of the walk as the whole walk is around 4 kilometres and I don't walk to well but was able to do two of the bridges and walked through the rain forest to the look out over lake Arenal. Unfortunately I wasn't up to doing the... More

My wife and I spent several hours enjoying this attraction. The combination of fixed and hanging bridges of varying lengths and heights were a fun walking experience and a nice, up-close view of a beautiful part of Costa Rica. Highly recommend!

Now I don't like nights! So I explained this to our guide, and he was gentle with me! You do go up high, and the bridges do move, but if you can it is worth it. Just like me hold tight!

I highly recommend this for any multi-generational family excursion. My in laws were able to peel off to make a smaller loop before the gradiant of the trail became too tiring. My husband, I and the kids continued on and had a blast looking for monkeys. We saw white faced and the brown larger ones (the name of which I... More

We took and early morning guided tour in a small group - us plus one other couple. The total walk is less than 2 miles, not too strenuous and with a good guide took a couple of hours. We encountered Koati, Monkeys, Snakes, Spiders and many different bird species including a Toucan who politely posed in full view for a... More
