We decided to pass up the opportunity to zipline, preferring to take our time and walk the bridge trail. Eight bridges that can easily take over two hours at a slowish amble. The path is very well maintained and easy to walk but the surface can get a bit slippery so sensible footwear is advisable. There can be quite a... More

The hanging bridges are cool, you get the mysterious cloudy visual, the misty tree tops... and it's why we went. There are also ziplines on the premises, we didn't do those. Don't expect to be on the bridges by yourself. There are other visitors and the talking scares away any wildlife that might live there. I prefer a more natural... More

My husband and I (in our 80th) are well above the average age group of these extreme sports, but found the sky walk on hanging bridges very rewarding. To see the trees at last from above with monkeys playing and not walking under the canopy was great experience. the lush colors of different greens was unexpected. We also dared to... More

We did the canopy tour while we were there. It was really fun and exciting. There were two things I disliked. 1. The tour was really fast. You had no time to catch your breath or look around. They were already clipping you and making you go the next line. And 2. It's pretty expensive. Off course they make pictures... More

We went here for my daughters 18th birthday. It was a lot of heart pounding fun. The young men were very friendly and skilled at their jobs. My daughters enjoyed the eye candy!! Lunch was mediocre at best. We had sea bass with garlic-yuck! Enjoyed the hanging bridges and hummingbirds. We were time challenged so weren't able to fully enjoy... More

Awesome hanging suspension bridges were safe walking in the canopy. Walking through the misty rain was like hiking through a primeval forest. We were the only ones early in the morning above the forest floor. The hummingbirds landed on our hands. Great park attractions with a wide variety of experiences for everyone. Take a guide and go early before the... More

Very comfortable and safe bridges, the longest is longer, 510 ft, than the Capilano suspension bridge in Vancouver, 450 ft, though that seems longer. But its not higher. Made of steel these eight bridges do not feel as terrifying as the Capilano bridge, the single plank width canopy walkways in KL at the Forest Research Institute Malaysia, or the smaller... More

We saw Howler Monkeys and a Quetzal Bird. The howlers sounded pretty scary. We wouldn't have seen the Quetzal if we had not met up with a couple who had a guide with a scope. Wish we had a guide throughout our walk on the bridges. It was a wonderful experience

With ages ranging from 4 to 66, our family had a fabulous experience ziplining through the Cloud Forest . We had wonderful guides that made it feel safe and easy. We had a lovely lunch on the property before hiking over the hanging bridges. We saw sloths and numerous birds, and a howler monkey surprised us on one of the... More

We did the ziplining tour with our 11 & 13 boys. It was very enjoyable, but felt it could have been even better. - the group was huge. We were grouped with about 30 other persons, which is quite large as a group. We therefore felt that the tour was a bit impersonal. - We and our kids are used... More
