Very fun trip and I would recommend if in the area. Good tour guide and since I am afraid of heights, very scary!

Must see attraction

The tour was fantastic! Outer guide was extremely knowledgeable and pointed out so many animals that we would have otherwise have missed...including a baby eyelash viper!!

January 29, 2014 Our guide was absolutely amazing and knowledgeable! We were a small group of four which allowed for more time having our questions answered. The bus to pick us up from our hotel arrived right on time. We even stopped to observe howler monkeys on our way to the hanging bridges. Overall, the best of all the tours we took on this trip.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended December 2012

We really enjoyed the hanging bridge tour! The hotel pickup and dropoff was a nice bonus. Our guide was very knowledgable and it's amazing he was able to spot the animals he did. Our group consisted of 8 people and the smaller size made for a more intimate setting. Would recommend for nature lovers!

This tour was amazing!

4 star rating: Recommended January 2015

The guide picked us up at our hotel and we drove to the hanging bridges site. The bridges (some more fixed than others) gave a great view of the canopy. The guide pointed out many things that we would have missed (a viper snake coiled on a branch, the hollow trumpet tree, hummingbirds) and I don't think we would have appreciated the close view of the canopy nearly as much without him. His English and sense of humor were great. Please note that most "canopy" tours around Costa Rica are zip lines, and, while fun, don't focus on a view of the canopy. Bridge tours, on the other hand, do.

4 star rating: Recommended August 2013

This was fun and our guide made very interesting; Jose' was very friendly and had the driver stop the van before we entered the park to make sure we saw a hanging sloth. He did his best to make sure everyone was able to see the monkeys, birds, and snakes along the paths; and he would point out the different flora and if used for medicinal purposes. The most difficult part of the trip was that some of the paths were very steep; so, some of us who are older were slowing down then and "huffing and puffing" our way up. Jose' made sure we didn't get too far behind, and it was still an enjoyable experience--even with the slight rain that began as we were finishing our tour.

4 star rating: Recommended May 2013

Be sure to wear thick soled walking shoes, as you end up walking on horribly designed and very uneven cement stepping stones they used for the path. Other than that, the tour was very nice and the guide was great.

3 star rating: Worth doing June 2015

The tour was good, but not worth the price. Our guide was great, friendly and knowledgable and the walk was pretty with the bridges. It was a good experience, but at only about 2.5 hours long and not good value. You're probably better off going to the attraction yourself-it's not far from la fortuna
