Santa Elena Skywalk, Santa Elena

4.1
#3 of 15 in Sightseeing in Province of Puntarenas
Bridge Historic Walking Area
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. Put Santa Elena Skywalk into our Monteverde trip generator to see other points of interest to visit during your vacation in Monteverde.
