While staying in Monteverde don’t miss the Sky Tram that will lead you up to the Continental Divide and to one of the highest mountains in the area.  Sky Tram is a guided tour where you can have the opportunity to observe the cloud forest outstanding biodiversity, the majestic Arenal Volcano and the Nicoya Gulf.The Sky Trek’s zip lines go from mountain to mountain, allowing you fly through a cable at speeds up to 40 miles per hour and heights of over 520 feet.  There are also 5 observation towers that surpass the cloud forest treetops, providing amazing panoramic views our company has a braking system that was superior to what I'd experienced in other places.The zip linesthemselvesare long and fast, when the clouds cleared, we were able to see the ocean, which was amazing. It is a really great experience.

We weren't sure about zip lining, but we LOVED it.

A fantastic, beautiful ziplining experience! Professional and friendly staff and incredible views of the cloud forest and ocean. It is definitely chilly so wear layers.

I really afraid of heights but the staff was really friendly and clearly trained very well. If your unsure if you want to do the zip lining you can do the practice run and even go up to the top of the hill you can turn back if you need to but you should definitely do it:)

First time ziplining for our family of four (kids 16 and 13). I have to admit that I had zero interest in ziplining, but wanted the kids to have the experience. I chose Sky Trek after reading many reviews and learning about their braking system. At other places, riders have to self-brake by squeezing the line with their (gloved) hand).... More

I very much likedthe sky trek hanging bridges as the views were impressive and the bridges felt solid! However there were close to no animals apart from one snake. The guide was good if you have an interest in flora and geography, otherwise the trail is walkable on your own.

I went for the combination tour with both the walking bridges, tram and the zip-line. It was one of the best experiences I have had during my 2 months travelling in Centralamerica! It is worth every penny. If you're a student, bring your student ID - I got a great discount. The guys on the zip-line are professional but also... More

Really nice, well-maintained trails and bridges for the cloud bridges. I wasn't overly impressed with the pricing (seemed high) and the transportation to/from.

We were a group of 3 families that spent a weekend in CR and zip lining was something we all wanted to do. Some of us had done it before in other places. Our guide recomended Sky Trek because it had a mix of things to do, but everyone should be aware that this is not so much a canopy... More

Been zip lining in Costa Rica and other places in the US. This place beats them all. It's the highest zip line I have even done. We have two school age kids that are tiny, and they were able to zip line with the staff, which was fantastic. The whole experience was positive and felt very safe. The staff had... More
