We have ziplined in many different locations, but this was one of the best. First we did the aerial tram, and got an amazing view of the rainforest below. Then we hiked for a while in the rainforest floor, visited a beautiful waterfall, before taking the tram back to the top. THEN, the zipline! So much fun, and the instructors... More

We were greeted by 5 guides and a photographer. They spent the next 15 minutes explaining the safety of our equipment and fitting our equipment on us. We were taken to the first landing and told to sit back and keep your legs up so you can enjoy the view. We started at maybe 10 feet high and went through... More

I agree with many of the other reviews - this is a worthwhile attraction, but a bit of a letdown from our expectations. I'm glad we went, but we saw more wildlife on the Tortuguero Canal tour. I would give it 3.5 overall. PROS *Unique views and opportunities to get up close views of rain forest. *Saw frogs, spiders, lizard,... More

It's worth the ride of perhaps an hour or less from Puerto Limon to this attraction. Our guide had twenty years worth of experience and was studying Biology at the university level during the off season. He was friendly, entertaining and quite knowledgeable. There was lots to see. Our guide had keen eyes and would point out things we would... More

It was interesting to see the research that is being done at the Park. It is essential to have an excellent guide, which we did.

I had the chance to explore with the owner, Martí Jiménez, the new improved canopy line, and it is something I will never forget. This is the fourth time I do Canopy, and it was great. Very good equipment and plataforms, and excelent guides. We got to see sloths and toucans, and great views of the natural tropical forest. I... More

I was really looking to experiencing this rain forest after reading about it. We were on a cruise of the Panama Canal and this was the port we stopped at the day after the canal. First of all you go on a 45 - 60 minute bus ride to get there. That wouldn't be so bad if most of the... More

The middle of the trip was interesting and informative, with a few extras to keep the rain forest itself a little above average to see. The down side is the trip to and from. It took 1 hr and 15 min each way to go about 10 miles across an extremely rough road in an unconfortable seat. I'm a little... More

After reading all the positive reviews of Veragua Rainforest, I was hoping this place would be a highlight of our cruise. Unfortunately, it was very disappointing. Had I never been to a rainforest before, I might have been really impressed with this place. Unfortunately, I have been to several other much more impressive rainforests in other countries. My main criticism... More
