We just dropped by to get some info about times and prices rather than booking through a tour company or hotel. The cost to take the tram up and zip line back down was $70 USD per person. The tram ride up was nice, especially when compared to taking a tractor ride up at the other tour we went on. The method this company uses differs from the other we did on this trip. This company uses a double line method and the guest does not hold onto the line but rather onto the harness below the cables. This was more comfortable for me. Also, the bottom and top of the harness were connected rather than two separate pieces at the other company. I think being connected made it more comfortable. The views were great. It was hot and there was some walking during the tour. I preferred this company over the one with the tractor ride to the top of the mountain.

Beautiful rainforest hike. Three suspended cable bridges, each bride stretches between 270 and 330 feet and all skim the top of the spectacular rainforest up to 126 feet. Views of the ocean and rainforest. You will see birds, monkeys and other small creatures. Worth the trip!

I was hesitant to pay the price, but glad I did. Traveled up into the rainforest on the tram with an informative guide. The views were just outrageous. We saw lists of monkeys, and toucans, scarlet macaws . There were waterfalls and lots to look at. There was a snake exhibit back on the grounds. The guides were very friendly and knowledgeable.
The on site food- not so great! The gift shop was loaded with great stuff including some local made crafts. Clean restrooms well maintained grounds.
Fabulous attraction!

The guide is knowledgeable and the tram ride great (holds 10) Cost was $60 to ride up and back down. One of our group ziplined down ( 14 lines -) but lots of walking hot/sweaty. Gift shop is great too.

Enjoyed the explanation of the rainforest - do not expect to see wildlife but the scenery and views are fantastic.

Awesome experience! It was a first for us (group of 6 women) in Costa Rica and for zip lining!! If you have never been zip lining before this is the one to start with. The guides made us feel very comfortable and safe! It is quite obvious they love their jobs and are very passionate about the rain forest and their country. After zip lining we had a short nature tour that was very informative on different types of plants, flowers, trees and snakes (snake exhibit) in the rain forest. Highly and strongly recomment this tour! You will not be disappointed.
