enjoyable hike through the jungle but bridges are not for the faint of heart.

This trek through the jungle covers just over 2 miles with the ability to "short cut " back to the exit in several places . There are 6 large hanging bridges and several smaller... read more

During the hike through the jungle we were able to see several annimals including Toucans , Monkeys , snakes and many large insects and... More

No question that this is likely a spectacular hike on a nice day, but we had the misfortune of going on a rainy, overcast day. Certainly no one's fault, just bad luck (it was supposed to be the dray season). The guide did her best, but there was not much wildlife to see (one monkey and maybe a dozen birds).... More

We visited as part of our Caravan tour. Be SURE to take rain gear with you! The rain forest lives up to its name. This is not for people who fear high places. The bridges are metal and safe but do move a good bit as you cross. You do see birds and wildlife but can't take many photos unless... More

You feel like a monkey going from tree to tree and you might also see monkeys! The tour guides are really there to let you have the best time and telling you everything about their flora and fauna. It can become a bit repetitive if you are not a nature lover. My 11 thru 17 yrs old kids loved it!... More

We loved the hanging bridges. This was one of the activities we did while on our honeymoon. If you are afraid of heights, there are some bridges that are not too high, an if you're an adventure seeker there are plenty of very high bridges with incredible views! The volcano itself is an amazing sight to see!

No need for a guide! Spent 1.5 hrs along the path and loved the hanging bridges. Even though we couldn't see the volcano due to weather the trail is wonderful and the hanging bridges are exciting.

We bought the passes via our hotel- we chose no guide cause we read on Trip Advisor that tons of people have guides and we knew we could get info by just getting near a few parties and if needed we could separate and take in the beauty or a bridge in private

Booked a tour with jacamar tours. Jose was amazing, knowledgeable and responsive. We learned so much, and I can't speak highly enough of everything we saw. First off it's an incredible experience to be so high up in the forest. Jose was very skilled at pointing out birds, frogs, snakes, lizards, etc., and had an incredible telescope that he took...
