Great views

Was unbelievable to see all the mountain foliage. I could not believe it was so lush at the top. Ride wasn't too scary and we'll worth the $8 - Gorgeous views!

Really enjoyed the view from the top of the mountain and definitely a variety of vegetation you could clearly see . Your ears pop on the way up and down. Small shop on top to get a drink or a snack.

Definitely worth going up in the cable car. However, if you're short and/or claustrophobic like my mother, you might find the cable car itself uncomfortable.

Awesome panoramic views of Puerto Plata where the mountains merge with the ocean!

If you go on this tour expect it to take longer than your told we left the resort at 9 and didn't get back till 2:30 when we were told 1:00. It's definitely something to see and for $50 usd you can't go wrong. It just took a bit longer than we would have liked and were starving till we... More

This was one of the best parts of our trip. The tour through the pathways at the top was amazing. Lush with a vast amount of plant life as well as birds. There are turtles in a man made pool and the area has a very old world feeling. Bring a sweater as the air is much cooler at this... More

It's a nice ride, the wait to get on the cable car was around 2hours. I felt bad for tourists with little kids, as there is a local band playing local music very LOUD which is not suitable for kids under 2

The view from the top it's worth the trip. Don't go with a tours company. Go on your own. It's a very cheap attraction
