A very unusual experience walking ABOVE the forest rather than through it. Beautiful scenery, and very cool bridges which vibrate as you walk across them. Local guided are very knowledgeable about the flora and fauna of the region.

We took the longest walk. The views were amazing and our guide was very knowledgeable. Saw a sloth, hummingbird nest with eggs, lovely trees and vistas. Bridges were very secure and they limit the number at one time. You do need good shoes and the hike was a moderate level

We went with a guide and hiked for about 1 1/2 hours crosing 6 suspension bridges and seeing monkeys, canyons, poisonous snakes, a waterfall,etc. The trail was paved in a way that helped to keep you from slipping if it is a little wet.

There is so much to see and so many subtle features of the ecology of this rain forest, that it is a must to book your visit as a professionally-guided tour. We booked our tour through Desafio Adventures and had an amazing experience. The tour consists... More

The first bridges are exiting you are 15 meters suspended in the air with a beautiful view, but then you realize the next 14 bridges are exactly the same! Also it's a long hike!!

These suspension bridges were high up in the trees, with waterfalls below. Wear good shoes and poncho so that a light rain does not deter your visit. Peaceful.

Loved it. Not good for elderly people who are unsteady. Some paths were a little difficult to walk especially in the rainy season.

These amazing bridges were a fabulous way to organize a family trip. We all loved the marvelous walk through the green fantastic nature. You can see the volcano Arenal one of the most cool places to go visit in Costa Rica. I really recommend this trip to take for everyone: couples, family or friends.
