Reserve ahead for Hanging Bridges and Sky Tram?

Is this a must, or can you just show up? Are there only set times when they set out with tours, or are they pretty much constant? We would rather play things by ear and go when we feel like it, but I also don't want to miss anything by not having a reservation. Thanks!

You can just show up at the Hanging Bridges as long as its during their normal business hours. They have tours that leave at specific times, but it's easy to do on your own if you want to do that. Hiring a guide will up your chances of seeing wildlife. We didn't see any when we did it on our own. We booked ahead at Sky because we were ziplining and those slots fill up and sell out, but it looked to me like you wouldn't need to book ahead if you just want to ride the tram.

It is a nice tour...and plenty room for many people...you really do not have to make reservations...you can see what time is better for you...also regarding the weather...

Agree with all of the above, book it when you are here is no biggie for that tour. Have a blast.

Sky occasionally sells out and you risk not being able to get a guide at Arenal Hanging Bridges. If you know you want to do Sky in particular and definitely want a guide for the bridges, it is better to make reservations.

I would suggest that you reserve at least the day before to ensure that space is available . As exploringCA mentioned they occasionally sell out.

I'll be in Costa Rica in the first week of Aug. We are looking to do the sky tram / trek / hanging bridge combo tour too. There are 6 of us total and trying to get everyone to agree on a day is getting difficult. In Aug any thoughts if we need to book now before we arrive or can we book a day in advance once we get there?

Does anyone know if there are any coupons / discounts sites to book this tour?

Thanks for any help

You can book once you are here...no problema...be extra carefull with some people offering discounts...they are not register or ceritifed tour operators or travel agents...they just split the commision places pay them as finders fee...the best is conatc the service providers and ask them for a cash discount...you will save money... !!

I respect roadadvisor advice

But the website we used

Purevidaeh.com

Did not take any money from us and I booked 3 tours from them and for confirmation they asked us to pay for one of the tours directly to the tour company

Visit their site for more information

I emailed them in May when we booked in advance asking about a cash advance. They didn't offer one to us.
