Hike the 3.1-kilometer trail passing impressive bridges of different lengths and heights, some of them suspended over the forest canopy.

The explanations of the guide about plants and animals, how nature makes its way in the jungle we were passionate about. It was lightly raining and had a great charm. Because of the fog we could not see from there the Arenal volcano, but the view has to be spectacular We were picked up by bus at the hotel and brought back. The passage through the suspension bridges is also exciting. There is control of the number of people on each bridge, at the same time. Everything is very controlled and serious as it characterizes the nice Ticos. Pura vida!

Fun to see all the variety of creatures and learn about them.

Our guide was passionate about helping us understand how all the species interact and their importance to the balance of the system. He was knowledgeable and engaged. He also took care to make sure that my husband, who uses a cane, was doing well throughout the trip, which we appreciated.
