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.

Where to stay in Monteverde

Monteverde makes the most of its scenic natural surroundings, with an extensive choice of eco-accommodations offering an immersive natural experience. Most guests choose to stay outside of the town center to enjoy the rainforest surroundings in an eco-lodge or a family-owned ranch. Southeast, along the road to Monteverde Reserve, and north, near Don Juan Towns, you'll find some of the most popular areas to stay. If you do stay within the town center, you'll still enjoy easy access to the area's gardens and animal reserves.
