We went on the aerial tram tour. It offers breath taking views of the rainforest. You truly get to see the diversity of the rainforest from up high and down low while in the tram. This was a wonderful experience. We saw beautiful butterflies and hummingbirds flying by us. (Wear a red shirt and the hummingbirds will think you are a flower, at least, until you move.) We also heard the sounds of toucans and howler monkeys. Our guide was knowledgeable and very friendly. We did not have the opportunity to go on the trails but they looked well marked. We'll have to do that next time. This is a beautiful park. I highly recommend you visit it as a day trip from the San Jose area.

We took an aerial tram in the rainforest with a guide and received so much informative information. We also went to the butterfly garden. Did not see much wildlife but it was an interesting tour. We did see a two toed sloth.

took a 3 in 1 tour and was very nice going through the rain forest by boat and then by aerial tram! I would recommend this for anyone wanting a day excursion to the east side.

I'm not sure if the rain forest aerial tram is actually inside the park or on the edge of the park, but regardless -- it's a must-do when in this area of Costa Rica. Access is right on the road driving through the park so you can't miss it. We visited two aerial trams while in Costa Rica -- this one, and one on the Pacific side. This one was the best. Brand new trams, excellent guides, incredible vistas, so peaceful, a decent number of animal sightings and a nice jungle walk too. Oh, they also have a butterfly exhibit where you actually see them emerge from their cocoons! For the thrill-seekers, there are zip-line rides located at the entrance into the road to the aerial tram. We didn't participate but the jungle in this area is so beautiful I can just imagine the zip-line would be stellar. No wonder it's rated one of the country's top attractions,

Worth the trip for the Aerial Tram with guide and tour of the butterfly and frog garden. We had great weather with wonderful views. Guide was knowledgeable and made it interesting.
