    What to Expect

    The Hanging bridges forest reserve comprises 243 hectares (600 acres) of protected forest. It is ideal for hikers who would like to discover and admire the unique characteristics of the tropical rainforest.
    On the 3.1-kilometer (1.9 miles) circuit you will go across 15 impressive bridges, some of them
    suspended over the forest, and others stationary. The bridges have different lengths and heights and
    were made with the intention of accessing the flora and fauna from different perspectives as you go
    through the different levels of the forest.
    From these bridges, you will have great views from the heights of the forest’s canopy making it easier
    to spot birds and animals. The topography of the terrain is relatively easy with some short inclines,
    making this tour apt for all types of people.
    Some of the animals that inhabit this type of forest include
    three species of monkeys, multiple species of birds, serpents, wild boars, frogs, and more.

    Duration: 3 hours

    Location: Ecoterra Costa Rica, Arenal Volcano National Park, La Fortuna de San Carlos Costa Rica

    We toured with Daniel, who was amazing! He spotted a sloth in the trees outside our hotel before we got 10 feet down the road. Knew we were in for a treat then. He was an avid naturalist, and identified many birds just by their...More

    On two separate days we did a tour in the hanging bridges park and a hike up the volcano. Both tours were wonderful, fun, and educational. Our tour guides were great. We saw a lot of animals and wildlife.

    Hanging bridges were a bit disappointing to us in that only the odd humming bird, bat and lizard was seen eventhough we had an excellent guide which is essential. Don't try to do this without a guide as you won't see a thing and try...More
