Santa Elena Skywalk, Santa Elena

Wander among the treetops of a lush rainforest with Santa Elena Skywalk. The tour uses trails and a series of 'sky high' suspension bridges leading you through the thick green foliage. See plant and animal life from a different perspective and understand the ecosystem of a 'canopy' habitat. Vines and epiphytes wrap around the tree trunks to preserve the moisture providing an ideal home for small animals and insects. The walk provides far-reaching views of the jungle, perfect for photo opportunities.

  • A well organised tour, from humming birds to the elusive Quetzal and almost face to face with the howler monkeys crossing above the walk way  more »
  • I went to the short courses there, observing birds and plants native to the cloud forests in eight passes, four of them. Highest point is 50 m. But under large plants in full, not feel the height. It's nice. Wiggles is the suspension bridge of course.

  • I loved this walk because we got a great view of the entire landscape. 6 bridges to watch the canopy. We saw monkeys on bridges and everywhere around us.
