Totally scary. Can't believe I actually did it. Long ziplines over huge canyons. Didn't really get to appreciate the view as I was scared and just trying to hold on. Husband loved it and would do it again.

My wife and I zip lined with Sky Trek. Our guides were hilarious and made the experience so fun. It was exactly the right amount of time. We would definitely do this again.

My family and I booked the sky walk, sky tram and zip lining tour and loved it. Though I was nervous before arriving, once there the organization and knowledge of the staff put me at ease. The guide on our walk was fantastic and pointed out everything of interest. The area is beautiful. Zip lining was thrilling and the guides... More

We had a guide in our tram who explained about the history of La Fortuna, the lake and even did an imitation of howler monkeys (no small feat for a girl), but with the rain (80% of the time in a rain forest), the visibility was less than we liked. Regardless, it was about 15 minutes, and really it's purpose... More

This was our first time to try zip lining. It was cold, raining and everything was covered by clouds. And it was still AWESOME! The guides were so helpful, the zip lines were extraordinary, the scenery was gorgeous. Really can't say enough wonderful things about the experience. Highly, highly recommend! You'll love every minute of it!

Pretty cool, good prices but be ready for some rain, is not called cloud forest for its sun! It's worth paying for the guided tour while doing the hanging bridges tour because otherwise you'll miss out on a lot of stuff. The tour in English is better than that in spanish because of the guys.

Guides were really knowledgeable. When he would spot something he would pull out a wildlife/fauna booklet, show us the picture, then show us the real thing and explain it to us. Hike was not very strenuous but was stunning. The suspension bridges were great in that you could look over them and see everything. I readily passed on the zip... More

Despite rain, we had a good time. Two of us did the zip lines and all of us did the canopy sky bridges. The ziplines professional and fun and the bridges afford top down views of the canopy as they are build over the canyons. We got a few fabulous pictures of birds from above.

A great combination of hiking, site-seeing and ziplining! If you are short on time here this is a one stop hop. The walk is actually a bit of hike going through and over the cloud forest. Saw some amazing birds. The Tram take you to the top for a view of both coasts on a clear day. Then Ziplining- wheeeee!... More
