What an amazing day spent at the Hanging Bridges tour. Amazing tour guides (Tony of rainforest experts) made this once in a lifetime experience so memorable. The wildlife and natures offerings were awesome to see. We're fortunate enough to see those crazy spider monkeys ! Highly recommended.

While up in the Arenal section of Costa Rica we decided to go to the hanging bridges. Pretty easy hike for most people and a little scary on some of the bridges, however it is worth it. Highly recommend.

Among a lot of interesting attractions at Arenal, this one combines physical activity with pure relaxation of watching the beautiful nature of Costa Rica. We did this tour twice and never were bored with fascinating views at the volcano and surroundings. Walking along the path you enjoy the songs of birds, the wonderful smell of flowers, various sounds of live... More

I am always a little hesitant about crossing suspension bridges but these were quite stable and it is worth the hike. There are fences (not just ropes) along the bridges, which is good because most of the bridges are rather long. We had a good guide who pointed out wildlife that I wouldn’t have noticed on my own. Although the... More

This was a very cool tour. The bridges are at different heights so a couple are pretty high but you feel very safe on the bridges. We saw a sloth holding a baby, rare birds, snake on a tree, miniature honey bees and Howler Monkeys! Great excursion!

We did this trip combined with La Fortuna Waterfall and a volcano hike, Really fun! Should wear lightweight, long pants, and definitely wear sneakers- preferably waterproof hiking sneakers. The ground is a bit rocky and muddy, and could probably get slippery if it were raining out. This attraction is a bit of a hike/walk through paths in the rainforest, and... More

The hike isn't too bad to be honest. I managed to complete it with a bad back I had injured and flip flops as I'd lost a shoe rafting. That being said, I highly recommend wearing something with a thicker sole as the ground can be very uneven at points and can be uncomfortable wearing anything thin. The guide did... More

Loved the walking tour - it was pouring rain. Did not have a guide - if we did it again would hire a guide. I think it would be worth it - they see things that a "visitor" misses.
