Santa Elena Skywalk, Santa Elena

4.1
#6 of 29 in Historic Sites in Costa Rica
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.

    Interesting place, though, I expected more. See more animals, have Information on the species. It is interesting to observe the fauna with binoculars. I think tourists should be more targeted at the time of purchase. Should talk about what to take to enjoy more of the place. There is a concern of agencies in sell and sell but there isn't the same concern in guiding tourists.
