My husband and I enjoyed the spectacular views of the volcano and Lake Arenal from both the Tram and the Zip line and platforms. The staff were excellent. Safety and fun went hand in hand. I especially appreciated the braking system which was far superior to the one I had done 6 years ago in Mexico. Would do it again... More

This is a must do for anyone that likes adventure and speed!! The best zip line anywhere and the longest, highest and fastest!! Forget brakes, just hand on and enjoy the ride! Our guides made it fun and kept up safe at the same time.

Our guide was very cool and had a lot of knowledge about the history and animals and foliage around the area. He was a good sport with taking pictures too. The only negative was that it was cloudy and we couldn't see the top of the volcano. I would definitely do this one again.

My husband and I went here as part of a Swiss Travel day tour to the Arenal area. The guides that we had with our group including Luis, Jonathan, Reynaldo and Erick were great! So friendly, funny and helpful! They made us feel comfortable and kept us safe. They offered to take photos of us too even though there is... More

The views of the gulf were spectacular. Our guides, because there were no crowds, let us go at our own pace, stopping to take photos from the towers, even letting me go hands free to take photos on one of the ziplines. Got in a couple tandem zips with my sweetie, that has never been allowed in any of the... More

They brake for you, best thing ever for scared families. Mine were terrified so it helped. Guides are funny and make sure your safe. Nature walk was awesome at our own pace almost a private tour in english with Steven. Worth the visit, slight discount if staying at Hotel Belmar $83 plus transport.

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...
