After the hike we went to the hummingbird exhibit. There were so many hummingbirds at the feeders it was hard to count them all. The reptile tours was really... More

Zipline highlight of this park,the guides very safe. Hanging bridges are good but get a guide as you will not see things unless pointed out. A little disappointing that we really did not see any wildlife. Dress for the cold and rain or you will be miserable. The restaurant the was expensive,$12.00 soup and not that great. Go into Santa...

We did the self guided tour, and whilst its amazing to be so high above the canopy we actually saw very little in terms of animal life. Would be a much better tour if you did it with a guide who knew where to look out for things. The place had more of a commercial theme park atmosphere than natural... More

My husband ziplined (his first time) and we both did the canopy walk on the suspension bridges. A scenic and enjoyable day!

We did not do the zipline (which is the big draw here), but pre-booked a hike on the hanging bridges, with one of Selvatura's guides. It cost $45 per person, and in our opinion, was not worth it. If you've done other hanging bridges (such as Arenal), chances are, you'll see much more. We didn't see any wildlife at all,... More

An amazing day spent ziplining and crossing bridges in the beautiful cloud forest. Our guides were terrific and we felt safe as we zipped on 250 foot high lines and swung from the Tarzan swing! This is one place you must visit if you come to Costa Rica. Perfect for every age.

We went with a guide to the hanging bridges. We had completed a 5 hour tour at the ground level so it was actually quite nice to see the forest at higher levels. The bridges show you below the canopy, at the canopy and the 4th bridge is above the canopy. It really kicked in how cool it was when... More

We booked both the zip lines and hanging bridges through gate1travel for about 60 per person. It was a whole day experience that was a blast! They picked us up in the morning from the hotel and dropped us off when we were done around 4 pm. We did the ziplines first, our group was about 20 people, which I... More

We went ziplining and it was soooo much fun! The guides were fantastic and the price was very reasonable. I was really scared to go but I am so glad I did!

We did the canopy bridge tour with a great tour guide last week. The guide was very intelligent, and was extremely excited to share all of the rainforest information with us. Although we didn't have the opportunity to see many animals, he did a great job of teaching us, and pointing out different plants and insects. Highly recommended, and especially... More
