These guys do a great job of taking people of all ages for a great trip throught the rain forest. Also the resturant and shops were impressive.

We were staying on the Pacific side of Costa Rica and had a chance to take the Tranopy Tour which we'll never forget. My husband and I happened to be the only ones that morning, so we felt especially looked after by two of the most knowledgable and wonderful guides: Marvin and Daniel. (Thanks guys!) The quiet, slow trip up on the tram was beautiful -- we spotted a troup of white-faced monkeys as well as lots of birds (perhaps 4 types of hummingbirds!) and some gorgeous butterflies (including the big blue ones, forget their name, but they're stunning!)

Then the second half of our trip was to zipline down the mountain! What a blast! Marvin and Daniel made us feel extremely safe -- and the equipment seems topnotch. What an exciting experience! They also have a nice, small exhibition of snakes and medicinal plants. I bet any age group would enjoy this (and less adventurous types could certainly just stay on the tram).

I had the opportunity to go to the Rainforest Aerial Tram and Canopy tour a few months ago and had the time of my life! On the aerial tram tour I got to see lots of plants and wildlife, and the guides were extremely knowledgeable and fluent in multiple languages. When we took the canopy tour to get back down we got to go on lots of different ziplines, giving me a chance to get comfortable and enjoy the ride even more. The views from the canopy tour, looking out at the ocean between the mountains, were a stunning. There were people of all ages on the canopy tour and the guides were very hospitable toward everyone. The lunch was delicious! We were then brought on a tour of the gardens and the serpentarium, and the guide we had was very knowledgeable and made the tour fun and entertaining. I would go back here in a heartbeat and would highly recommend this tour to anyone.

I found this tour enjoyable only because of our guide. He was extremely knowlegeable and communicated very well. Unfortunately the wildlife did not cooperate and for the most part stayed under cover. I'm sure that if more critters were out and about my impression would be very different.

We went to the Jaco Rainforest Tram on the third day of our three week Costa Rica Vacation. Our family of four loved it. We had a great guide, Rocio, accompany us on the tram. She told us lots of great information about the flora and the fauna...as well as the many creatures that lived in the forest. We saw white-faced monkeys, toucans, frogs. The tram stopped at any time we desired to have a closer look. After the tram tour, we then did 45 minute nature walk through the forest. Our guide showed us more about the forest and the various things that grow there. We also got to see a rather extensive snack exhibit. Our kids, who are now 5 & 8, loved the whole thing. Although we did not do this, we saw that you could ride the tram to the top and then zipline down through the forest. There is also a snack bar at the base of the tram. BE SURE to bring bug spray. We did not and were charged double the normal price for a can of bug spray at their gift shop.
