I absolutely ADORED the Arenal Hanging Bridges, and I've been on both the Sky Adventures Hanging Bridges tour and these, and definitely recommend the Arenal Hanging Bridges. It is a fairly easy hike but it is pretty long, so bring water! The bridges are amazing, and you go from super high to super low so can see the tropical forest... More

We really liked this tour in the forest, and our kids aged 3 and 5 thought it was great fun, and walked the short route without getting too tired.

We spent our last morning in Costa Rica on the hanging bridges tour, and although it rained the whole time, it was fabulous! You're in the rainforest, so expect rain - that's what makes it so green! We still saw plenty of wildlife including a viper and tucans. Great tour guide really knew what he was talking about and looking... More

Beautiful scenery, cost $24 per person, there is a student rate with ID; 15 bridges and well maintained path. Basic restaurant and bathrooms on the property. Good parking and picnic area available. Overlooks a lovely valley at the start. Once on the trail, it is about 2 mile walk. Bring a raincoat in case. There is a waterfall trail and... More

So beautiful! The trees, the flora, the views, the history... everything about this tour left me in awe. Though I probably would have enjoyed it more if it wasn't down pouring when I went... and I mean DOWN POURING... probably the most aggressive rain I've ever been in...but hey, it's the rainforest! It was still the most memorable experience I... More

We spent a morning at Arenal Hanging Bridges this past month, and had a beautiful and enjoyable hike! We were nearly the first people on the trails when we arrived early one morning. We saw Mantled Howler monkeys in the trees before we left the entrance area, and we saw a family of White-nosed Coati while hiking the bridges. We... More

Walked a good path about 2 hours. Waterfall is striking and bridges and paths well maintained. Restaurant, gift shop, and bathrooms along with tour guides if so desired.

Before departing on our honeymoon we received noogies from our friends for not booking ziplining but instead opting for the Hanging Bridges tour. We were not disappointed at all for making this choice! AnywhereCostaRica.com booked this excursion for us through Green Vacations. Our tour guide was Joshua/Yoshua (I hope I got his name right). It ended up being a private... More

You must go here! It is so beautiful and so nature- filled. It was one of the most beautiful sights in my entire life- and I got to be up close and personal with a volcano. It is one of the most popular spots in all of Costa Rica. Make sure you have someone with you that knows where they're... More
