Me, my 16 year old and 7 year old went on the tram tour. It was ok, but long and boring, saw more of the same that we had seen in Costa Rica, and only saw one toucan, no other animals. It was interesting but I was ready to get off half way through. My 12 year old and husband... More

We visited the rain forest aerial trams in Costa Rica, and came away with a new appreciation of the vanishing, but vastly important rain forests of our world. The ecosystem there was amazing, and the views from the trams were educational. Where else can you see an almost primeval setting where nature still rules and man is but an intruder?

The tram ride let you see all heights of the rainforest. Viewing the floor and the canopy was awesome. The animal sounds were able to hear in the quietness.

While traveling with my senior, but active, dad we tried the tram/zip combo thinking he had an easy way down if he had second thoughts at the top. Not a chance! The professionalism, safety measures, and their handling the stopping made the ziplining a worry free and enjoyable adventure for is both. Great canopy and.vista views and fun zips. Highly... More

Very enjoyable tram and zip line experience. Great for first timers. Safety is a priority for the staff, yet not to the point of being smothering.

We booked this excursion through our cruise ship and enjoyed it very much. It is a bit of a drive from the cruise ship dock (1.5 hrs), but the trip is scenic and a good guide helps pass the time. The aerial tram ride comes with a private guide for 6-8 passengers, who is really helpful in helping you to... More

This is a great tour for everybody, except maybe people who are afraid of heights! The tram ride up the mountain is lovely and peaceful; the trams are small and each group was accompanied by a guide who pointed out various plants, trees, and birds. At that point people who would rather not do the ziplines may ride the tram... More

If you want a great view of the Costa Rican transitional rain forest (they will explain what that means), and you do not want to go on an arduous hike or ride ATV's or horses, then this is the place for you. Especially if you are older or incapacitated in some way. Or with a family with young children. We... More
