  • A nice walk through the rain forest. We have some animals seen u.a also monkeys, which went to the bridges along. The bridges are in good condition and from there you have impressive views of the volcano and the rain forest.

  • The grounds of this attraction are simply stunning, and the bridges tour is a must for birders and anyone interested in learning about flora and fauna. The guides are really knowledgeable. 
  • Great place, get there early if you can as the wildlife is more active then and best if you have a guide as they know where to look for things and can explain as you go, some of the bridges are quite ...  more »

  • Great experience walking through the rainforest and along their hanging bridges! Be a little wary of other groups and troublemakers looking to shake or jump on the bridges... there are signs asking that people not do this but it can really turn a relaxing rainforest walk into a perilous journey when you've got some teenagers on the bridge with you from another tour group. Took many amazing pictures, would definitely return again if we're ever back in Costa Rica!
  • Great place to see the rainforest from above. The price is high for a few hour walk around. But i think it wurth the money.
  • Beautiful park where you can enjoy a paved walk through lovely rainforests. Saw a family of Congo monkeys as well and got some good photos. Wasn't overly crowded, but we went on a weekday in the off season while it was raining!
  • Very affordable place to kill a few hours in the rain forest, wear good shoes as some parts of the trail are steep and slippery. Bridges had amazing views of the volcano.
  • Delightful walk on well manicured paths with 16 hanging bridges. Hanging bridges were very well maintained and offered spectacular views. Great for all ages.
