I highly recommend getting a guide for this trip, we had a fantastic time on the 2 hour hike through the area and bridges. I would recommend this excursion as part of your trip to Arenal.

I am not too good with heights but wanted to take this tour for the views I would have. The walk started and very gradually we got higher, the bridges became higher and longer, altogether more challenging. The feeling of exhilaration was great as were the views and I would advise people afraid of heights not to look down at... More

It's a great walk/hike through winding paths, a waterfall and the awesome hanging bridges which were on my list to see! We weren't sure what to expect and the ticket counter told us it was one path and has one hill, something got lost in translation because it really is one path that is UPHILL for the windy walk....We saw...

Great views of volcano and tree tops. A nice stop passing through good for a few hours not a full day. We did the non guided trip. safe well marked trail, clean and good for small kids.

Definitely a place for tennis shoes-no sandals. This is a great area with huge palm trees and lots of vegetation along with the Hanging bridges. I have a little bit of fear of heights. I'm still glad I went because the area is so beautiful. The first bridge gives you a good idea what they are like. If you can,... More

A great hike in the rainforest. I took about 2 hours at a slow pace enjoying stops for photos. We saw monkeys, a snake and loads of birds. Take the waterfall detour, it is short and worth it. Wear proper shoes for a hike. A lot of uphill climbing so mobility issues are out for sure!

My wife and I had just arrived and this was our introduction to Costa Rica. After our 7 day stay, the time spent with our Hanging Bridges guide, Alberto, remained as one of the top highlights of our vacation. We took the hike slowly so we could enjoy the beautiful views. Wildlife was everywhere, monkeys; vipers; tarantulas; bats; butterflies, etc.... More

You can walk through the forest on your own or get an naturalist to go along. We walked along on our own and enjoyed the rain forest, the waterfalls, rivers and streams. We saw some birds and a sloth but not too many other critters. It was thrilling to walk along the bridges which sway in the wind and with... More

Wear comfortable walking shoes, a hat, and sunscreen; have bug repellent at the ready, just in case. The walk is about 3 km, up and down some small slopes and across both suspension and regular foot bridges. You are up in the canopy for much of it, looking down at rivers and streams, and it is beautiful. We didn't opt... More
