Hanging bridges are typical for Costa Rica, and it is really great experience. You can observe wild animals, enjoy nice view and breath the fresh air in rainforest. We had really good time here!

We had Gabriel as our tour guide. I highly recommend him. There were three of us total me and my adult daughter and a solo explorer. Gabriel is extremely passionate and knowledgeable. He answered every question and it was easy to catch his enthusiasm. We came across a poisonous snake a Fer de lance. Gabriel had already explained how dangerous it could be. He gave the snake a wide berth and huge respect - enough that we understood how deadly it can be. We saw amazing insects and frogs, a sleeping hummingbird, and also yellow eyelash viper. We could not have seen any without Gabriel. We crossed two of the hanging bridges - fun and scary at the same time. If I could go back, I’d definitely ask for Gabriel again.

We took a ride with Alonzo (and Hillary who was doing a practicum). The views were amazing and Alonzo made sure we got pictures of views as well as together. We were all beginners so we had some nervousness. Alonzo was very playful and calmed our nerves immediately. We saw a pair of monkeys we would have never noticed without Alonzo’s sharp eyes. I rode Mistica a beautiful mule -I don’t know why I liked riding a mule but I thought it was cool. She was responsive and well behaved as were the rest of the horses. Great memory- great fun.

Thank you very much for your comments! In Mistico Park the comfort of our visitors and the quality service is very important. Sometimes sightings can be difficult if you go self-guided, this is not due to the scarcity of animals, but to the camouflage system that the animals have, and depending on the hours of visits, they hide more to avoid being seen by people. We always recommend the guided tour in case of people who want to see animals. We look forward to seeing you again soon.

We took a morning tour through Jacamar to see the Hanging Bridges and our tour guide Walter was phenomenal! He was so friendly and knowledgeable about the different species of plants and animals and his ability to spot things was incredible. He was so good at engaging with the kids and helping us to spot animals through a telescope. He entertained various questions and never made us feel rushed, just ensured that we were enjoying our experience. The amount of wildlife you see on this tour is amazing and all while still being able to take in various views of the Volcano. Was the perfect tour for us. It was a good amount of walking, but not too strenuous. At the end, they provided us with a snack and waters, still the most delicious pineapple I have had to date!
