Tram holds 6 people and the guide. You travel at different levels through the rainforest. Fascinating, beautiful and amazing views. They also have a fantastic Butterfly and Orchid gardens here. Well worth the visit. The guides here were very knowledgeable!

This is a very easy non-scary ride through rainforest canopy. The guides are as good as you can find. Our guide Juan Miguel knew his ecology very well. I am a former state scientist from an environmental agency in California with degrees in biology and ecology so I'm qualified to judge. He even knew the plants which is the hardest... More

I cant and I wont blame the tour operator for the weather, but it was in a word HOT, and in another word HUMID all which served to detract from what otherwise would have been an enjoyable ride up the side of a mountain. While the animals were scares they were definitely present but are probably more active in the... More

I feel bad rating this attraction as "average," because riding in a gondola above the rain forest is definitely not an average experience. However, we found the Rain Forest Aerial Tram to be somewhat redundant with the vast array of possible day trips from San José. Firstly, it is important to note that you should not do this excursion to... More

On October 8, 2015 we took the rain forest aerial tram tour in Costa Rica. The bus ride is a long one that lasts around two hours. On one hand that was good because our guide explained a lot about Costa Rica on geography, politics, healthcare and so on. She was very knowledgeable and well spoken. We finally arrived at... More

Fantastic, relatively non-intrusive way to see the rainforest. The tram goes through various heights to allow visitors to see different levels of the forest, Loved seeing the plant and animal life. Only 2 things spoiled it a bit: the journey from Puerto Limon, which was a nightmare of traffic and took forever (only do this if your time in Costa... More

Excellent short trip to here - we filled in a free afternoon.. Very peaceful soaring silently over the treetops, interesting commentary though not a huge amount of bird/wildlife to be spotted. Good guide showing you round the butterflies, hummingbirds,snakes etc, though nothing particularly extraordinary if you've been to other wildlife centres in Costa Rica. (I don't mean that as a...

Sergio was an excellent guide who is passionate about his country fauna and flora. He spoke very clearly and provided us with a wonderful experience in Costa Rica. From the boat ride on the Tarcoles river seeing crocodiles, iguanas and birdlife to the aerial tram ride where we viewed a large iguana, black mandibled toucan and king vulture and gained... More

This is a well thought out attraction. The canopy tour in gondolas that seat 6 plus tour guide take you close up to the vegetation so that you can see insects and birds in their natural habitat. There are spectacular views on all sides. The ride lasts about 90 minutes. Back down on the ground there is a walking tour... More
