If you visit the Monteverde cloud forest definitely you must visit the spectacular sky adventure center with the amazing sky tram(cable car) touching the clouds, enjoying the beautiful landscapes with the Pacific Ocean & volcanoes views, the staff is the best, super friendly and Profesional guys! The sky walk(hanging bridges) is another great experience combined with a walking in the... More

We started with the Sky Walk which took you over 5 hanging bridges with our guide who was friendly and informative. The walk lasted about 1 hour and although we were a little disappointed of not seeing any animals due to the weather it was still interesting. We followed this with a ride on the Sky Tram and zip wiring... More

My family and I did the package - Sky Trek, Sky Tram & Sky Walk about 10 days ago. They were really excited to go zip lining, but I was really scared to death. I had researched all the zip lines available in Monteverde area and to me, this one looked the safest, sturdiest, most professional, etc. I'm very glad... More

We loved zip lining through the forrest. The guides were professional and funny, and very concerned with safety, which I loved! The ride up in the gondola was beautiful and the hot chocolate waiting for us at the top was much needed! Unfortunately, it was a cold and cloudy day, so we didn't get to see a whole lot, but...

The zip line and sky tram are literally in the clouds! We were the first ones to arrive that day, so we were treated to an extra special adventure with 2 expert guides. It was windy and rainy and the rust from the zip line roller thing kept dripping onto my face. Bleh. I really wish it was clearer that... More

Ok - so we went as a family of 5 and signed up for the combo tour. Definitely do this - it's a good deal and you get to do the bridges on a guided tour, the tram, and the zip lines. THe day we went the tram wasnt working so we hiked up to the top for the zip... More

It was our first time zip lining and we had a blast! At first it seems really scary but you forget about it once your having so much fun. The workers attach you to the zip line and break you at the end, so there's nothing to worry about. Also, one of our favorite parts was on some of the... More

We did not take the sky trek, but the sky walk and the sky tram. We could see that the sky trek zip line was described in the brochure as extreme. We could see that the lines were tall and long. Also, it was expensive at $70. Our party of 6 would set us back $420.00. We could see and... More

Well this was my first time to ever attempt something like this. I am 53 years old and very afraid of heights. When we arrived I began to panic. The guides talked me through the whole thing. They were gentle and kind and not condesending to me. They rode with me as I was terrified. When it was my time... More

The sky walk is great ... The bridges hardly sway and we were in a group of six with a fabulous guide who showed us things there is no way we would have seen. No one else was anywhere to be seen so we felt alone in a humongous cloud forest ... An amazing experience. Originally I'd booked for the... More
