Either one should work out fine. The Sky walk has more difficult terrains to walk.

I have been to both a couple of times each. We have spotted a lot more wildlife at the Arenal Hanging Bridges versus the Sky Walk. My guess is because of all of the activity from the ziplines. The guides at each location have been professional and knowledgeable. The bridges are longer at Sky Walk.

I agree that if you want to see animals, with a GUIDE go to Hanging Bridges and you will see a ton! I went with a guide (Sky's guide) and saw very little in terms of wildlife). Last time I was on the ziplines at SkyTrek, when waiting on one of the platforms I actually saw monkeys and toucans so it's always a toss up as to where they are when you're there but again for animal watching...go to HB. :-) ENJOY!
