It is a really great experience.

We really enjoyed the activities that we signed up with these people. The Staff is great, helpful and knowledgeable. We did the tram and the bridges and enjoyed ever bit of it. This is the best choice if you're visiting Monteverde.

The ziplining was amazing! Our guides, Jose, Emanuel, Ranier, and Ignacio were so fun, and took good care of us. We had 5 adults, 4 teenagers, and an 11 year old, and it was one of our favorite activities. We even saw monkeys in the trees by the parking lot. The views and ziplining were breathtaking!

Super friendly staff with a good sense of humor. Well worth the long, bumpy ride to Monteverde. We went on a clear day and could see four volcanos, the continental divide, and clouds below us. Amazing experience. Bring a clip to attach your camera to your harness or a go pro if you want photos or video.

We rode the Sky Tram and got very lucky because it was a clear and sunny day. We visited during the rainy season, so this was highly unusual. From the top we could clearly see the Arenal Volcano and lake. It was truly breathtaking.

This was the first time I have been ziplining and, as the mom of adult children, I wondered if I was being foolish. This was lots of fun! Before we boarded the sky tram, we had an in-depth safety presentation and got to "practice" on a short, low zip line. The tram takes you high into the gorgeous mountains and... More

Zip-lining is fun, zip-lining in Costa Rica is extraordinary. Traveling high above the rain forest is very exhilarating. Well worth the bumpy ride to get there!!!

This sky tram was an exciting adventure on our way to zip line and very smooth ride to the top of the rainforest canopy!

Wasn't sure which zipline experience to choose but eventually chose Sky Trek and I'm glad we did. We've ziplined in Hawaii, Puerto Rico, and the US and this one is by far has the most "WOW" factor. It's so high...and so cool. Our guides were wonderful. As we rode the Gondola up they noticed a Viper snake hiding in the... More

If zip lining in a cloud forest sounds like a good time to you, then this is your trip. If not, stop reading now. This was an awesome experience from start to finish. They picked us up at our hotel and after a short drive we were at the base camp. During check in we were told about putting our... More
