What You Can Expect

Rainforest Adventure Atlantic Aerial Tram Tour

Aerial Tram, Costa Rica

The amazingly diverse ecosystem of the Braulio Carrillo National Park makes it a fantastic destination for exploring the magic of Costa Rica’s rain forest. A bilingual guide will pick you up at your San Jose hotel for the approximately 1-hour drive to the park.

First, explore the tropical landscape from ground level with a guided nature walk. Then, climb aboard one of the secure passenger pods of the aerial tram to begin your 70-minute ride. You’ll get an up-close view of the incredible biodiversity at every level of the rain forest. Glide past hanging gardens and an array of lush vegetation as your guide points out native plant species.

Keep your eyes open and your camera ready for sightings of the many animals that inhabit the park, including tree sloths, monkeys, colorful birds, snakes and many more. Back on the forest floor, enjoy a delicious Costa Rican lunch surrounded by the beauty of the jungle. You will then be transported back to your hotel in San Jose.

This tour was pretty great! It is a bit of a trip from San Jose, but the small bus was very air conditioned and roomy, and the guide and driver were both great and entertaining.

There's a lot of different tours at this particular location, so make sure you look around to find the right one for you. This particular tour includes the trip, a nice nature walk, lunch, and the tram tour. There are others that include things like zip lining, etc. if that's your sort of thing, too, and you'll be grouped with other people for the trip and then separated there based on what you've booked.

The nature walk was pretty cool, and informative, and our guide very knowledgeable. Do not go in expecting to see a ton of wildlife - you'll see lots of plants and insects, but most likely won't see much in the way of animals keep in mind those tv shows shoot for weeks or months to get all the things they want to show.

After the walk we went to lunch which is sort of buffet style and included chicken, rice, beans and some sides. It wasn't magnificent, but it was filling and tasty enough.

The tram tour itself was pretty cool! They each seat a max of six people, we just had four plus our guide, and it was nice to give us a little extra room. On the way 'up' it goes right along the rain forest floor and you can see all sorts of small streams, insects, trees, etc. and on the way back it comes down along the canopy where you have an entirely different view of the rainforest and you can see how they differ.

Overall I definitely recommend the tour if you're looking for a day spent away from San Jose, exploring the rain forest, and are not looking at doing any huge hikes or anything. The nature walk was very easy and not demanding at all.

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.
