We took the whole package, with walk over the bridges, train to the top and zip lines down. The walk is the sort in which you will see something, with the zip lines everything goes by very fast. It is a lot of fun, but do not think that you'll be able to see wildlife around! A word of advice,... More

Fantastic value for money. We did NOT book outr trip with the hotel... More

A must for Monteverde! The clouds makes one feel heavenly. Be there in the morning to be surrounded by creatures from Mother nature.

it was so much fun to zip line for like more than 10kms. 2 hours or more of non stop fun. And donot forget great views of the rain forest. I will suggest for girls to wear jeans or a thick track pant or lowers, the harness hurts you after half n hour and if it rains you can get... More

The walk was so beautiful :) We booked the sky adventures package ( sky walk, trek, and tram) for 85$ each! The walk was fantastic, but the tram and ziplining was unlike anything I have ever done before! It was absolutely incredible and it was so much fun! it was freezing up there, but we got free hot chocolate and... More

I visit the cloud forest to zip line, and it's the best experience ever. The freedom in the cloud forest, and walking high to zip nine lines above the trees, while flying in the sky is priceless. It's a must do and see in Monteverde. Look down, you'll never forget the moment.

The cloud forest is an experience not to be missed - in spite of the rain. Make sure that you have a good raincoat before embarking on this hike - then just go for it! The hanging walkways give excellent views of the top of the trees and monkeys can be seen at close quarters. After doing the complete tour,... More

Walking the hanging bridges in the cloud forest was one of my favorite things in Costa Rica. The forest was so beautiful, loud and quiet at the same time. We were lucky enough to tour just as a huge cloud bank came rolling in. It was magical.
