We visited the hanging bridges. The bridges were sturdy and not particularly scary. Of course, the built aspects of the park weren't really what we were there to enjoy; it was the nature. The bridges provided excellent views of the canopy and all the epiphytes of the cloud forest, while the trails between each bridge gave us a closer look... More

I came to Selvatura in many occasions, as a student and as a chaperone. This is definitely a great experience if you are looking for a moderate adventure with the family. The ziplines are great and the staff is very professional and helpful in getting you hooked onto the cables and give you tips before they send you on the... More

I’m 68 and my wife is 62 so we were by far the oldest zip liners on the day and everyone made us feel very welcome. This is an 18 platform circuit. The guides and instructors took great care of us although as naturalists this is not a particularly good way to experience the forest canopy. There wasn’t much time... More

The place offers a range of activities, but I just did the hanging bridges trail. Come here early in the morning and you will meet few other tourists. Entrance was 25$ (incl student discount). The trail is 3 km and includes 8 bridges. I took my time and was back after 2.5 h. Fully met my expectations.

A must do activity for everyone who is visiting the Monte Verde region. The ziplining was so much fun as well as visiting the property. A highlight of our trip. We didn't have a guide but we did see animals along the suspended bridges including howler monkeys playing and eating in the trees. Very safe, clean property, lunch was good... More

My kids insisted on zip lining. This is the place to do it -- 17 zip lines in all. I realized after #5 that this was not really my cup of tea. Still, I was glad I did it. I was even more glad that I walked the 3km trail of nearly 20 "hanging bridges" before zip lining. The walk... More

The tour we participated was a combo tour that included Hanging Bridges Tour, Humming Bird Gardens, and the Zipline tour. The Hanging Bridges tour provided great views of the Cloud Forest, high above the rain forest. The trek was steep at times, and is not for the weak. The views were breath taking and was worth the effort. The Humming... More

I was at Selvatura with a group of 34 individuals. The group did a variety of the tours offered, but I only did the canopy (zipline) tour. It was fantastic!! I have done several canopy tours in Costa Rica and thought this one was great. We had very knowledgeable and friendly guides. They moved us from cable to cable with... More

Selvatura was my first zip lining experience and I can't wait to do it again soon. The staff were knowledgable and explained beforehand how to zip line safely with our gear. Their English was not entirely fluent but they were clear enough to communicate what we needed to do. Once it came time to zip line, I felt nervous but... More
