We spent the entire day here. Hanging bridges, lunch, Canopy Zip line and the beautiful butterfly garden. Birds and animals. This experience was what we had hoped to experience on our Costa Rica tour and it certainly delivered. The food in the restaurant was excellent and the tour guide for the butterfly garden was very knowledgeable. I must also compliment... More

I have zip-lined before and this is way more intense. My family had alot of fun and the scenery is to die for. My biggest disappointment is that we opted not to take our camera because we paid for a helmet camera. When we got home it was horrible video quality. The views were great and I would have loved...

We did the hanging bridges and zip-lining at Selvatura. It was a cloudy/rainy day, but we still had fun! If you are doing both activities in 1 day, I recommend doing the hanging bridges first. It took us about 1 1/2 hours walking along the bridges at a leisurely pace. No guide needed. Zip-lining was lots of fun with great... More

Enjoyed the park, ziplining and walking. Everything was well organized. Superman was not included in my zipline package so pay extra if you would like to do it. Had lunch at the restaurant, which was extremely good. Bring your raincoat or poncho.

At our hotel's recommendation, we booked the zip lining and butterfly garden at Selvatura park. They threw in the hummingbird garden for free. The zip lining was amazing and perfect! The scenic view from up there was absolutely breath taking. We did Ecoglide in Arenal. While that was a great experience, it was no comparison to what we experienced at... More

Great place to spend your day; canopy tour, hanging bridges, humming birds and butter flies! Lunch is optional as well and transportation is free of charge. Monteverde cloud forest at it's best!

We thoroughly enjoyed our time spent at the park. Although it was quite busy (we went on boxing day), they managed you through the attractions so that it didn't feel crowded while we were there. We saw the butterfly gardens. This attraction was a little lacking and I have seen a better display at Niagara Falls, Canada. I loved the... More

My daughter and I really enjoyed our walk through the hanging bridges of Selvatura. The paths are well maintained and easy to walk. It was not too strenuous. The series of hanging bridges got progressively longer and, on the really long ones, the view from the middle of the bridge was breathtaking! It was amazing to be so close to... More

My 14 year old son and I had a great time at Selvatura Park. The zipline included a 1km run, which he did superman style, and a Tarzan swing. We've done a number of ziplines before and this is definitely one of our favorites. We also toured the butterfly and hummingbird gardens and found them to be very worthwhile to... More
