Very easy trails, beautiful vistas and amazing birds and suspension bridges. A must see for birders and nature lovers.

We would do this again and again. Every visit. It was heaven- excellent. Bring an umbrella or raincoat. It's warm. Camera is a must. I wish I could be there now. Magical. Paradise. You walk in clouds and your warm and it's surreal.

We did the walk in the morning (8am), before the crowds so it was just a couple of people on the bridges and trails. The views are amazing from the bridges, I would say this is a must in the region. We saw some wildlife,...More

This was really cool. There are a lot of hanging bridges that are really fun to walk over. We saw some Spider monkeys in the trees and some other animal called a Guatuso. It was a lot of fun. Kids would love this hike.

Loved the walk among the hanging bridges. Little shaky but a fun experience. The guide was excellent telling us all sorts of interesting facts and even spotting a sloth we would have walked right by. He was able to answer all our questions. The walk...More

A very nice walk above the beautiful flora and fauna of the Cloud forest. The view 155 meters above the valley floor puts you above tallest trees and ferns. Sensory quiet among a huge tourist trap. When you back into that trap you are refreshed.

We opted for the unguided walk, and were utterly underwhelmed. It felt like walking through woods that could have been anywhere, we saw and heard absolutely zero wildlife, and the view from the hanging bridges was not particularly spectacular. For that, we paid $88 for...More

We had booked the triple ticket here. This included the cloud forest walk, cable car and zip lining. The cloud forest walk of about 2 hours very pleasant, and we understand you do not get animals etc to command. But this was pretty boring. Great...More

Recently have a guided tour around Santa Elena skywalk. It was a great experience to be up in the canopy of the forest. I had a guided tour as I tend to miss everything, so I found that useful to point things out that otherwise...More

Enjoyed the walk, but no good if you don't like swinging bridges. A bit steep in between some of the bridge's. You need to be quite fit

I'm not interested in the ziplining but would like to go on the suspension bridges. There are so many places that have suspension bridges in the area though, there's Costa Rica Sky Adventures, Santa Elena Skywalk and Selvatura Park. Does anyone know which one is best for the suspension bridges experience?

You can certainly do it on your own. That's what I did. You will mostly see pristine cloud forests from the hanging bridges and some exotic birds if you are lucky. There is really not much a guide can add to your experience... More
