We enjoyed getting close to nature and taking the tram ride. It took -1/2 hours on the ride. Difficult for someone suffering from a bad back, but very beautiful. We also saw the Butterfly Conservatory and the beautiful flowers.

One of our favorite spots in Costa Rica, we began and ended our stay with hikes in this park. Make sure to hike trails on both sides of the freeway.
