It is a really great experience.

It's basically Disneyland, a lot of standing around waiting, all the lines are the same. Do the "Original Canopy Tour" much better!

Got here on a very sunny day, which we were apparently very lucky to have. The Sky Walk taught me a lot about the rainforest I was staying in, and provided a lot of cool photo ops and wildlife sightings. It was a pretty easy hike. Afterward, we went on the Sky Tram and Sky Trek. The guides were funny... More

The tram ride to the top was amazing, We had already done the zipline so didn't do it there, but it did look great. People at this stop were helpful and informative. Also had night hikes

We did the Sky Walk only. It was a guided tour. The guide was pleasant and well-rehearsed, but offered much less information about flora and fauna than we wanted. On the other hand, some of the bridges are truly spectacular.

This was a fun time zip lining over the canopies of Monteverde. Great guides and so much fun! Nice way to get an overview of the Cloud Forest. We were there on a sunny day and were able to see so much beauty but no wildlife.

We experienced the sky tram/ trek at the Arenal Volcanoas part of a tour with Swiss Travel. Both my husband & I had never done zip lining and there was some fear in doing this. The staff/ instructors were amazing! Keeping it light & fun and yet very secure in their safety protocols. Looking at the first line I was... More

With this zip line you go above the trees, not through the forest. That means long, high and fast! Since you are in the cloud forest, you can't usually see the other end. As you watch the people in front of you, they start going, then disappear into the cloud. You only hear their screams of excitement :-) When you're... More

We had a nice time walking the circuit around the 5 bridges but the truth is we saw almost nothing but green trees. He managed to find one wasp and a hole that he said had a tarantula in it but I'm a bit skeptical. Unfortunately our guide spoke rather quietly and we had to ask him to speak up... More

Went early in the morning so my husband and I had 2 guides to ourselves. Going through the clouds with 45 mph winds was amazing. Safety was stressed. Walk on ha hinging bridges was informative and interesting due to friendly and knowledgeable guide. Go, you'll have a great time!

tThe hanging bridges tour was wet but fun. The zipline on that day was terrible. The wind was shaking the tower. It was very scary and you zipline in a cloud. You can see nothing but cloud til you hit he platform. Wait for a better weather day or zipline in a different city, Arenal or Manuel Antonio.
