there is so many amazing things here. hiking horseback riding, zip lining caving, waterfalls, hot springs, loved the hot springs at Tabacon, but the hotel isn't all that great, stayed there very expensive, not worth it, stay at Mtn. paradise or Manoa instead and pay the 60.00 for the hot springs at Tabacon. and do everything. I walked 6-10 miles... More

Amazing experience, beautiful environment. Knowledgable guides who were a lot of fun. Would recommend this to anyone who wants to zip through the rain forest!

we had an awesome time and saw lots of stuff even though it was raining in May. May is the beginning of the rainy season here, but we had a great time. Everybody's experience is a little different but our guide Grieven found some really cool stuff to look at including blue jean frogs, a troop of spider monkeys, tarantulas... More

Had a blast! We considered not going with a guide but it was so worth it. My husband and I would have missed everything if we did not. Saw monkeys, hummingbirds, parrots, vipers, frogs, various birds, and so many neat things! Our guide was Greyvin and he was great with ensuring everyone had a good view or kicking out the... More

This involves quite a bit of walking. You walk from one bridge to another and each one is higher than the other. The bridges are stable and you get great views of the canopy. If you are lucky, you will see birds and other animals. However, don't forget to enjoy the fauna around you. Wear comfortable shoes and keep hydrated.... More

We visited the hanging bridges in May. We had a wonderful visit, even with spots of very heavy rain. We want with a tour guide from our hotel, Ana. I highly recommend a guide as we encountered a lot of individuals that were lost! The paths are well maintained and easy to walk. We saw all sorts of plant life... More

Maybe it is better when it isn't pouring down rain the entire time but there just wasn't much to see. I was expecting to see some wildlife but didn't see anything. The bridges are okay but without a view they are just bridges. At $24 a ticket I expected more. If you are bored and need something to do I... More

We had a great guide who told us about the interesting animal and plant life we saw. We were not out for the adventure of zip-lining through the forest, therefore we enjoyed the time we took just observing the forest from the bridges.

This was a fun walk but we expected to see more wildlife. We did see monkeys at the very beginning. The trail is uneven and seems to be more uphill than down. Don't cross the bridges if kids are in front or back as they can't seem to stop trying to make them swing. There is lots of lush vegetation... More
