WOW!! Brave souls need only apply!! Goodness, you are sky-high, which I knew considering it was zip-lining, but I wasn't prepared for the extremely LONG zip-lines over the cloud forest. One line was 1km! At one point the clouds came in during the zip-lining and we watched as each person disappeared from sight into the clouds. OH MY!! The views... More

Fabulous place to vet up close to many varieties of hummingbirds! Love the butterfly garden too. The hanging bridges are always a treat. I've been here many times and never tire of it.

We went to Selvatura Park just for the Hanging Bridges and did not hire a guide. We went first thing in the morning and even then it was chaotic just trying to buy our entrance tickets. The lines were long and moved very slowly. They should have a fast line for folks who are purchasing just one option. The Hanging... More

It was a great walk among the bridges. Great place inside the forest. Better if you hire a guide and get there early in morning by yourself is really difficult to spot some animals. My parents and my 6 years old boy, enjoyed the whole walk. It would be perfect if they have more vans to move people from monteverde... More

Wow. Just awesome. My 4 and 6 year olds had a blast on the zip lines and Tarzan swing! Would go again without hesitation.

We spent a day birding, we even saw the rare Three wattles bellbird, easy to hear hard to see. Our guide hand never seen it in his 300+ visits. The butterfly garden and hummingbirds were fascinating. Be prepared for a long hike with some steep climbs

This was an excellent excursion and one that should not be missed. Realistically, 4/5 is a bit harsh and they could easily be a 5/5 if for one change (that I mention at the end). The park really has something for everyone and we took advantage of a package that included lunch and entry to all of the attractions within... More

The views of the cloud forest and the hikes are incredible! Superman-style zipline was definitely worth the extra $10. The Tarzan swing is great too, and the numerous hanging bridges don't disappoint! I would absolutely recommend this!

We did the zip lines which were fairly priced at $50 for 2-3 hours, great experience, beautiful views! The hanging bridges walk was through beautiful cloud forest but impossible to spot wildlife without a guide and expensive in comparison to the zip lines. The insect house is a taxidermy display only and the reptile house was about 10 vivaria. Very... More
