Hanging Bridges Walking Tour in Arenal

    What to Expect
    Feel like you’re walking on air during this 4.5-hour tour of the Hanging Bridges of Arenal. Your journey begins with complimentary hotel pickup and a short drive to enter the Arenal rainforest. A knowledgeable bilingual guide will lead you on a walking tour along a series of metal bridges suspended on sturdy cables among the treetops. 

    The bridges provide a truly unique view of one of Earth’s most magnificent ecosystems. Learn about the native plant species you see, and keep an eye out for the many animals that call the rain forest home. You may spot sloths, monkeys, brightly colored birds and an amazing assortment of insects. 

    You’ll cross more than a dozen bridges of varying heights for a total of trek of 1.8 miles (3 km). Among the changing vistas, you’ll be treated to stunning views of the nearby Arenal Volcano, which is active and regularly emits clouds of smoke and lava streams. After the tour, you’ll return to your hotel with a renewed appreciation of Costa Rica’s natural wonders.

    Our family did a last minute tour of the hanging bridges park, self guided, but we did get to tag along behind a guided tour and get some pointers along the way. This is very family friendly and easy for all ages.

    I think the bridges fine for children of any age if they are walking but it’s a lot of walking. You can take shorter routes though. Some of the bridges are quite long and very wobbly but obviously very safe. And you can... More
