Full description
Spend a full-day in the rainforest, from special trails to the heights of the treetops and extraordinary observation points. This is an excellent option that must be included in your bird group’s itinerary. It is also a must for birders traveling independently but looking for a customized birding day.

You will start the day between 06:30 - 07:00 at the park’s entrance and walk through the secondary forest and open areas. Cross a hanging bridge and see many other species that have started their daily activities in search of food. Around 07:30, you will board the Aerial Tram for a journey to an amazing high point up in the treetops to look for birds, and experience the majestic beauty of the expansive rainforest. The Aerial Tram ride is a birdwatcher’s bonanza - a leisurely observation of canopy species is the rule, and you can stop at the Aerial Tram when you want a better look. At the end, at Tower 12, take a hike on a path that will lead you to an overlook station.

At this point, take time to relax and enjoy a box breakfast. Have the chance to observe many birds and explore the area and its other inhabitants. Board the tram again to head back to the rainforest, where a healthy lunch awaits. In the afternoon, passengers will continue on a path leading to the Observation Center, a special site for bird watching, surrounded by plants that attract hummingbirds. You can also peer into in the forest’s background, where once in a while some species that are difficult to spot might make appearances.
