Once you're in the Monteverde area it's must to be active in Selvatura Park. Hanging bridges, canyoping, birds, reptiles, snakes a.s.o. They do the care in your activity. Gives a safe feeling.

We went later in the afternoon which was nice because it wasn't crowded and we could enjoy the nature, the views and the experience without feeling rushed or crowded. The views were quite nice and it was fun watching the zip-liners on nearby cables, especially seeing the ones going double.

I feel like the hanging bridges experience could be so much better if the bridges were a little more natural. Beauty surrounds you and in the middle of the beauty are these ugly bridges :( On the bright side we saw monkeys (like 8) which was awesome, but other than that not too much else because there are just too...

Having been zip-lining in Mexico near Cancun this was a lot different and no where near the same standard - only due to that it was more zip-wiring between trees at a height of 10m most of the time but most lengths of wires being about 50-100m. There are better courses in the world, so I'd recommend to miss this... More

A beautiful hike through the tree tops. Some of the walkways appeared to be in need of repair, but all in all a beautiful way to spend an afternoon.

This is the longest zip line in Costa Rica. It has 13 different lines, the longest being 3,280 ft. On that one I went down "superman style" which is on my stomach in a harness with hands free. What an amazing experience. The staff who hooked and unhooked you were very careful and efficient. Funny, being on a platform in... More

Selvatura for us was the walk through the forest, on the suspended bridges, amazing and wonderful because we took our time, breathing the fresh air and admiring the canopy from the various bridges, while listening to the birds and various animals on the trails. It was also, according to my daughter (not a teen but your selection of family only... More

This place is not to be missed! Experiences included a guided tour of a hummingbird garden, hanging bridges, and a phenomenal zipline! I wasn't sure if I could handle the zipline (due to motion sickness and/or height issues), but it was fabulous! The guides provided a "taxi" service for those of us who didn't want to go it alone, so... More
