This experience only has a few reviews, but see what other travelers said about the provider.
You get to guide yourself on this tour and go at your own pace. This is a great spot for photos but I recommend getting a paid driver or shuttle. The road up is dirt with many potholes and no railing by the cliff side. The drive is intense but the park is very nice. Try to eat somewhere along the way as the restaurant onsite is VERY expensive!
Literally zipping through the clouds! Can't beat anything ever experienced! Yes - there's a considerable amount of walking/hiking involved.. consider getting a good pair of sneakers or walking shoes.. it gets heavy with the harness.. but all in all an experience not to be missed!
Overall the tour was very well run and what was seen was beautiful. We did not see any animals on our day, obviously the tour host could not control but it was the only disappointment.
Another great costa rican experience, with a great guide !
I would certainly recommand this activity for people or families with young children who enjoy to learn more about the country's animals and vegetation, and who can appreciate an easy and peaceful walk in the canopy !
This was a great experience for us. The views from these bridges are incredible. However, you have to be prepared for rain. Rain. Every. Day.
We loved this! The hanging bridges walk was really lovely and good for anyone. The guides are knowledgeable and cater it to your interests. The butterfly garden was beautiful. We didn't make it to the hummingbird garden.The zipline was great and dramatic! Lunch was delicious! All excellent!
Selvatura Park was fantastic! You have to want to get there. The drive is long and the road is bumpy, but it was worth the trip.
An excellent experience, in particular, the zip-lining. It was my first-time zip-lining and the staff made me feel very safe and comfortable throughout the experience, while keeping it fun and light throughout. Highly recommend!
Great experience and worth the price! The ziplining and hanging bridges were thrilling. The hummingbird garden and butterfly garden were beautiful. The butterfly garden is huge I think the biggest in the world and is enclosed in a very large dome-like structure. The included lunch was very tasty and included dessert.
Very amazing. I recommend this tour to all.
There was one point of confusion. The website where we booked the trip indicated that Selvatura Park did not provide transportation from hotels to the park, when in fact, it did. This was eventually clarified, but created some angst while we were trying to figure out how to get there.
The first person that I talked to on my tour was a cashier as we walked in the building. I wish that I had got her name because she was amazing! She took time to explain the park to me, give me history on the area and tell me all about the various things to explore while in Monteverde. We also were met by a friendly man at the locker area who was great about helping hold some of our personal effects. 1 star rating for both their awesomeness and 1 star for the humming bird park. Everything else about our tour was disappointing for the following reasons:
1. The zip lines are congested. Basically most the ziplines were short and slow.
2. When we got off a zip line to a new area we would get in a long line of people to wait to get on the next short zipline.
3. The equipment is old and poorly maintained. My family loves to zipline, we've been to a lot of places. This equipment was old, my harness was fraying all over the edges and the pulley I was given didn't spin at all. The staff had newer equipment and I suspect that they paid for it themselves.
4. The guides were grouchy. I can understand why they were grouchy too. They had to keep moving one person after the next as fast as they could to keep the lines moving.
The Selvatura park itself is beautiful and I would advise people to go and do the sky bridges, the reptile park, and the hummingbird park. The ziplines here are a complete waste of money.
Great facilities, friendly guides and excellent course. recommend upgrading to the superman option on last run. Was very pleased with customer service at Salvatura, due to a booking date error that was my fault. No hassles, they rescheduled us even though they could've easily made me eat cost.
