My day cost US $140 (can change). Bridges walk Google. Fantastic views over canopy. Heard many birds and saw quite a few. Hummingbirds flew within couple of feet. Photography difficult - birds usually moving between branches. With a guide would have seen more. Plant growth on trees incredible. Reptile exhibition good. Frogs, lizards and snakes behind usually fairly steamed up... More

We ziplined at 11am and then did the hanging bridge walk afterward. The staff was entertaining and fun. All of the amenities were safe. It was slightly drizzling and this was perfect as it added to the ambiance of the experience. Would definitely recommend for all ages.

We had never been zip lining before and wanted to give it a go - this seemed like the perfect place and was recommended by our hotel. It's definitely one of the better places to do it in Monteverde because it's the only one actually in the Cloud Forest. The views are incredible and well worth the money. You won't... More

toured the hanging bridges and was amazed at the forest, plants, monkeys, birds, and the trails. It was around an easy 2 hour hike in total. Well maintained, and definitely not to be missed.

Our family of four went for the late morning and through to mid afternoon. Our two both (6 and 10) were a bit concerned initially. That soon passed! Fun day. Many of the guides speak very little English, That said, they were always friendly and helpful. A guide went with our boys the entire time. A really fun day.

We had an unfortunate 2 hour wait at one of the lines. The weather was unseasonably warm and people kept getting stuck on one of the longer lines! We finished in the dark! The management were apologetic and agreed to a refund and free photos which was very reasonable and we appreciated. Amazing views over the canopy.

We toured the hanging bridges firstly before ziplining. The hike told about 2-3 hours and was really an easy walk. The zip lining was fantastic and I would advise you do not miss the tarzan swing or superman flight (this was a highlight of our trip).

We did the hanging bridge hike, and it is fantastic. The forest is lush, full of birds and animals. The trials are very well maintained without detracting from the forest.

We were picked up at our hotel and dropped off at the end of the day. It was exciting from beginning to end. The ZIP LINE was incredible with a SUPERMAN line for the finale! After having lunch at the restaurant, we walked thru the suspension bridges, beautiful! This was a highlight of our entire Costa Rica trip!

This place is most certainly a tourist trap but is fairly enjoyable if you go in expecting that. The grounds are beautiful and the views from the bridges are amazing. If you are looking for solitude go up the hill further to the Santa Elana bio preserve. Although I didn't didn't do this particular zip line it appeared to be... More
