What You Can Expect

Aerial Tram Atlantic from San Jose

Aerial Tram, Costa Rica

Located about an hour outside of San Jose, Braulio Carrillo National Park is a site not to be missed. This large park is home to several dormant volcanoes and is one of the most bio diverse rainforests in Costa Rica.

After pickup from your hotel, you’ll be on your way to the rainforest. Once you’ve arrive, you’ll take a walk along forest trails where your bilingual guide will lead you to the awaiting aerial tram. You'll get the chance to explore the hanging gardens of the rainforest up close from the comfort and safety of the aerial tram.

The tram will take you on a 70-minute ride through the canopy, allowing you to discover the beauty of the rainforest from up above. You’ll see plants, animals and birds in this hidden world of tremendous beauty and extraordinary biological diversity. Enjoy lunch out in the lush setting of the rainforest before returning to San Jose.

We enjoyed it. We didn't see a ton of wildlife, but that may have been due to the time of year. Guide was friendly and knowledgeable. Lunch was fantastic.

Thie tram provided a very interesting and different opportunity in viewing the rainforest. One way on the ride is over the canopy, the other is about half height. Would love to do this at night but don't think it is offered. Our guide, Cel, was great on the walk eapecially. He found things in the Forrest for us to see that we never would have known were there without his being able to point them out to us. Our driver, Eric was very timely and offered lots of interesting information along the way. Really enjoyed this excursion.

We expected it to be very touristy, but it was informative. We were very impressed with our guide, Jose, and his knowledge of the ecosystem. Breathtaking views from the canopy are not to be missed! We highly recommend this trip if you are in the San Jose area.

The tram ride through the rainforest, the experienced guide, the hike including the hanging bridge and watching animals in their natural habitat made for a great day and a wonderful experience.

The pickup time turned out to be an hour later than posted, which was a minor irritation. However, the tour was very good. Our group of four loved it.
