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.

The zip line height and speed is awesome! We have done quite a few canopy zip lines but those are under the trees. This one...the trees are well below your feet. The guides were great with plenty of instruction and safety. I wouldnt think that small kids or people with limited mobility would enjoy the zip line as it was its pretty intense and requires a little extra physical effort. But it is a thrill for sure.

This place DOES take credit cards. We used ours in the gift shop and for pictures. They have a little restaurant too. I am not sure why someone stated they do not take cards. They also have free lockers and bathrooms.

They have the fastest zip lining in Monteverde and the longest combined course. My only ding would be that they do not take credit cards, so bring extra cash if you want to buy lunch, rent a gopro camera or pay for the photo they take of you on the zip line. I was unable to. The guides here were excellent.

We really enjoyed this trek. We did the trek then the tram/ziplining.

The trek was awesome and we saw a ton of wildlife, which was awesome. The guide was very nice and knowledgable.

The ziplining was blast, but going down one double was a bit scary and my fiancee scuffed her knee coming to a stop on the line.
