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.
