  • The Arenal Hanging Bridges is a worthwhile visit when going to Costa Rica. Actually, any adventure in the area is worth the time. The bridges are suspended and can be a little off-putting if you aren'...  more »
  • Im surprised that this is listed as only #14 of things to do in the volcano area. This would be at or near the top of my list. Incredible views and sky high bridges that allow you to get a real sense ...  more »
  • 20 minutes from this mystical, hanging bridges arenal dam. A beautiful complex of structures bridges ranging over the tops of the trees. Very safe and orderly. We could see many birds despite the rain. The entrance is at 45 dollars. They also facilitate transport of one-way and return. They also have a restaurant of typical food pretty good but nothing spectacular. Without a doubt is one of the activities that you can do if these in fortune. It is a place safe enough for takes children.

  • A must see. Beautiful 2 mile hike through the rain forest. The hanging bridges are amazing. You can hear the river down below and 🐒 in the trees. Trees all around with the ground not in sight. Recommend not doing the tour so you can hike your own pace.
  • Words cannot describe the beauty of this place! Great 2-hour hike through rainforest and a series of hanging and regular bridges. The entire road is paved for ease and comfort. You can even rent jogging stroller to take young children. When Arenal is shrouded in mist and clouds, this is a great alternative...
  • Beautiful trail, excellent experience. I've never seen so much wildlife on a 3.5 km trail. If you go, go with a guide. Otherwise you'll miss out on the animals that only they know how to spot. We were 17 in our group and had kids as young as 3. We all had a blast. Highly recommended.
  • Okay. We went to the hanging Bridges on the spur of the moment one day... Oh my goodness!!! Beauty at it's best. The staff speak English and Spanish; which helps us to learn Spanish. You can take a tour solo or with a guide, the guide is a little more but he/she will be able t point out wildlife to you better than you on your own. There is a restaurant and gift shop on the property. We went solo and saw a few but the forest itself was breathing..... And Volcano Arenal was very visible. I wish I had more pictures!!😉
  • An incredible trail carved out with beautiful flora and fauna. You look up and down and the wildlife abounds. The bridges are awesome and offer spectacular views. Nice for a leisurely spent afternoon.
