Puentes Colgantes del Arenal, San Carlos

(4.2/5 based on 140+ reviews on the web)
Hike trails and traverse hanging bridges at Puentes Colgantes del Arenal, a beautiful, easygoing rainforest hike, culminating at an impressive waterfall. Hire a local guide, who will point out the vast diversity of wildlife living in the forests, from impressive flora, to tree frogs, monkeys, and snakes. After all that, rest and refuel in the restaurant at the entrance to the park, which serves Costa Rican dishes. Be sure to wear sturdy footwear, as you won’t be allowed on the site in flip flops.

  • Es muy lindo el recorrido, no necesitas hacer ningún esfuerzo durante la caminata y la sensación al cruzar los puentes es muy agradable 
  • An easy travel traffic, have fitness for electric carts for people with disabilities. A very well protected forest and great diversity of animals, but the passage through bridges is definitely very exciting, if you suffer from fear of heights or instability use caution since although they are very safe bridges when they pass several people move.
