Better Sky Trek- Arenal or Monteverde?

We will be going to both Arenal and Monteverde for our honeymoon and want to fly through the canopy!! Which location is the better choice to do our Sky Trek (in terms of scenery, potential wildlife spotting, and the most height to the lines?)

We did sky trek in Arenal and it was amazing!!! You take a tram up to the zip lines and are greeted with a cool sweet iced tea. You have a few mins to look at the view and snap a few pictures then you're off.

Take your camera because they get pictures of you as you come in. My Mom didn't want to zip so she took the tram up with us, took in the view then took the tram down and met us at the bottom.

There are 7 lines in total, I think. The first 2 are short and just give you an idea of how it works. The rest of the lines are WOW. You go about 55mph, the lines are high up and long. You get great views of the Lake and valley.

Sky Treck or Selvatura a lot of fun..do not expect to see to much wild life...maybe the noise by humans scare animals away...
