Visited here with a group of college students. They loved the ziplines - I loved the canopy bridges. Enjoyed the up close view of the top of the forest. Saw a wattled bellbird! Definitely recommend this place!

We were there primarily to walk the trails and bridges (not the zip line). Scenery was great and it was not crowded. We went in the afternoon so we weren't expecting to see lots of wildlife and didn't have a guide, but still a very worthwhile experience. If this sounds a lot like my review of Curi Cancha Reserve, its... More

I went on the zipline tour with my 10 year old. The park is a bit of a drive from the city and the hotels, and the drive is over unpaved roads, so best to sign up to be picked up by them even if you have your own car. A Selvatura van picked us up at our hotel and... More

On the bridges, you have great views on the rainforest. From a perspective we're not used to. We didn't see any wildlife at all, but didn't care because the scenery was magnificent. Not sure that is worth 30$ a person, you can see the same rainforest from below in the Reserva Bosque Nuboso Monteverde, a little bit further down the... More

Nearly died of a heart attack whilst whooshing through on the zip wires, but it was utterly thrilling, The kids were very relaxed about it all and just disappeared into the swirling mist around the trees.....wonderful wonderful wonderful. The experience of a life time

The setting and service was wonderful, and we thoroughly enjoyed our walk through the canopy, as well as guided tours of the different exhibits. We were disappointed that it was not possible to explore the butterfly garden, insect museum etc. on our own, but had to pay for a guided tour with limited time.

We walked the natural / bridge way thru the reservate and were disturbed by the noise of the ziplining, also many tourists make loud noise so there is no chance to see birds or any animals.. Bridges are okay.. Would go to a smaller one this is way to touristy!

While we don't have anything to compare it to, we really enjoyed our experience zip-lining here - we gravitated here because our host recommended it (less cost than Sky Trek and goes into the forest more, rather than over most of the time). Lots of smiles from kids (Ages 13, 10 and 8) and wife and I enjoyed it!
