We were in Costa Rica November 2014 and it was the best season to go. Very little rain and not too busy. This was my first time in Costa Rica for my 50th birthday!! I wanted to be away from the snow of Alberta. We really enjoyed the 13 canopy bridge walks and then when you are done, go get... More

I had always heard about the hanging bridges in Costa Rica and wanted to experience them. I recommend going with a guide. The guide pointed out little critters that I would not have otherwise noticed. As I was ending the tour, it had gotten dark and I saw a few different forms of wildlife that we would not be visible...

The bridges are all safe and well-maintained. The views are nice. But it's nothing mind-blowing. We saw a couple birds, almost saw a tarantula, a frog, a monkey, a coati, nothing crazy. The guide was very nice and informative. I would recommend it, but not highly.

Our family visited November 5. We went with a guide which in hindsight is a very good idea. The bridges are breathtaking and not for the faint of heart or short of breath. We found the paving stones a benefit. When it rains here it is torrential. Without the stones/blocks on the path the erosion would wash the path away... More

Little pricey for what you are able to see. Bridges and walk are cool but for $24 per person and no guide.....Could have done without

We came with our family of 4, and just paid the entry fee (no guide, kids under 12 are free). It was worth it. Fun and challenging hike, cool bridges, lots of monkeys, tarantulas, etc.
