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.

This was my husband's most anticipated activity on our vacation and it did not disappoint. We found the staff to be very professional and polite with good senses of humor. The guides were there to get us from one zip line to another safely and therefore we didn't get much information about the area. The views were stunning though and we got to see the clouds coming in over the forest.

The zip lines were longer than I had ever done before and we got some nice speeds going. It was so much fun and the only area for improvement would be to figure out how to avoid the bottlenecks that happened on some of the lines.

We had a great experience, guide did not add much to the experience, but the bridges and tram were lovely. We would have liked to have gone on more of the bridges or had the opportunity to do so after our tour. That was the only downside. Hike and tram were a great way to see the forest from many different perspectives.

We did the triple experience - the hike, the tram, and the zip line. The experience was excellent and that is coming from a person afraid of heights! This company does a wonderful job and I highly recommend this company. You feel safe and it is a bunch of fun.Oh, yea. Teens love this experience.

We took the sky tram and zip lining experience with this company. After looking on trip adviser we chose this company as the highest rated, when we went to book it through our lodgings they commented that it was one of their favoured companies as well. It is apparently the most expensive but even so was only 71USD each and we don't do these types of thing on the cheap.
Overall it was a great experience, we felt secure the whole way through and had confidence in the staff who went through with us and completed the mechanics of it all. It's a great ride including one of 775 metres. We were in a group of 5 so it kept moving and we were in there a total of an hour and 10 mins. It does involve climbing some stairs. Importantly the staff were happy for us to take videos and photos during the zip lining, something others have reported that at least one other company doesn't allow. There is an opportunity to buy a photo at the end if you are alone.

this day was booked for us through Katia at AnywhereCostaRica.com and it was one of the best days of our trip (which really is saying a lot in stiff competition)... There is a reason this is highly rated... we did all three activities and I would recommend same... we started the day with an instructive walk through the Sky bridges, seeing monkeys and sloth and being taught a great deal by our very knowledgable guide Daniel. Costa Rica guides take a lot of pride and bring a great deal of insight to their work. Daniel spoke enthusiastically about the forest's flora and fauna and our three teenagers spent the two hours entranced... then a short break, a good instruction on zip lining, a wonderful gondola up to the top of the mountain (during which our guides...who also take their turn with the walks and so are quite knowledgeable and keen, stopped the tram to watch a sloth and her baby interact... I think they were as excited as we were...
the Zip Lining is a rush... we did it during a miraculously dry day... and so it was clear and the views amazing... that is rare for the rain forest so, allow for that...
The Zip lining is simply a rush... very fast, but with a 44 second ride at 64km/hr you have a good chance to look around ( 9 zips in total)...
Start to finish this was a professional and fabulous day. Highly recommended.
