Owner description: While staying in Monteverde don’t miss the Sky Tram that will lead you up to the Continental Divide and to one of the highest mountains in the area.  Sky Tram is a guided tour where you can have the opportunity to observe the cloud forest outstanding biodiversity, the majestic Arenal Volcano and the Nicoya Gulf.The Sky Trek’s zip lines go from mountain to mountain, allowing you fly through a cable at speeds up to 40 miles per hour and heights of over 520 feet.  There are also 5 observation towers that surpass the cloud forest treetops, providing amazing panoramic views our company has a braking system that was superior to what I'd experienced in other places.The zip linesthemselvesare long and fast, when the clouds cleared, we were able to see the ocean, which was amazing. It is a really great experience.

“Not Great for Seeing Wildlife”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 12, 2013

This real cloud forest is great for views especially from the top of the tram run. But on a cloudy day you won´t be able to see much except the local trees. We did not do the zip line which is not our thing. The guide we had on our walk with hanging bridges was the poorest one we´ve had on the entire vacation. We saw exactly one bird. Still it is a very lovely place. But if you want to see birds and animals go to the Biological Reserve.

“Ziplining- scary but amazing.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 10, 2013

Skytram was pretty, not very long. Our ziplining experience was amazing. I have a big height phobia- no word of a lie, it was petrifying for me, but once on the zipline- amazing. There are steps and towers to climb, which was the scariest part for me. The guides were fun, friendly and reassuring.
Not sure I could do it again, but I'm very happy that I did it- all 9 ziplines. This company was recommended by most anybody we asked about ziplining. There is a more extreme one, and I think ones without steps/towers to climb- if your height phobia is bad.

“So scary - but worth it!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 6, 2013

We did the canopy walk and that was nice. My kids loved seeing the different birds and an orange kneed tarantula. Our next adventure was the zip-lining. The first zip-line was on a high platform - and just as we were about to start, poor weather moved in. It was so windy and rainy and the zip-line just shot into clouds. I was getting pretty nervous. The guides were fun and reassuring and I ended up having a great time. The food in the main building is not the greatest, but you don't come here for the food!

“Thrill of the trip”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2013

If you can, have them pick you up at your hotel, as the drive to the location is horrendous - even for Costa Rica. The whole experience was scary, breathtaking, beautiful and heart-stopping - and I loved every second.
