Sky Walk or Cloud Forest?

Both of these tours look very similar. Can someone shed light on the differences between the two well known tours? Thanks!

If you are talking about a tour to Monteverde, it is a 4 hour drive from Papagayo each way. The sky walk in Monteverde is a walk on hanging bridges through the canopy of the cloud forest. I am guessing that the cloud forest you mention is the hike through the Monteverde Cloud Forest Reserve wihich is done in the cloud forest at ground level.

Yeah, the tour options they have are to Monteverde to the cloud forest and then there's also a tour that looks like it's closer than going to Monteverde called Sky Walk in the Rain Forest {about 2.5 hours away vs. the 3.5}. This also says you go across suspension bridges. They seem similar but obviously the one that says Sky Walk seems closer than the long drive to Monteverde. The cloud forest looks amazing, but I'm not sure about the drive if this one is closer and offers something similar.

I think you are talking about the Heliconias Hanging Bridges and Rain Forest Hike, they are located between Miravalles Volcano and Tenorio Volcano. It is a great 7 hour tour a lot closer than Monteverde and less expensive as well.
