Puntarenas Rain Forest Walk Activity Level is Not “Easy”. Please Beware.
Mar 2019 • Couples
The good things about the excursion were the tour guide, Stephen, and seeing 19 crocodiles from a bridge overlook.

The average things were the lack of time in the shopping/eating part of the tour and seeing very little wildlife on the crocodile boat ride.

What I really want to concentrate on is a warning to everyone about the activity level of the rain forest walk. It is advertised as easy. I asked the owner of Greenway specific questions about what that meant. His answers lead me to believe that it was easy. IT WAS NOT EASY. It is climbing up and down narrow, sometimes loose, steep steps. It is crossing two long “swinging” bridges. It is hot. It is an hour long. Greenway provides NO cold bottled water. We brought water with us, left it in the hot bus and returned to very warm water. After the walk you are driven about 15 minutes to a hotel and then have to walk another 5 up a steep incline to get fruit and cold water.
Please make sure you know and consider this.

I later emailed the owner about the rain forest activity level and his answer can be summarized as “that is too bad,”

Hello Lizisnice Thank you very much for your report about our tour. The tour is considered easy because it is easy for a person with regular mobility abilities. Unfortunately if you have walking problems for sure you will find it extremely difficult. Sorry for the inconvenience about that. Regarding the water, in effect we offer cold water and fresh cut fruits in Villa Santa Lucia, which is a attraction listed in the tour description and access to it it is only 5 minutes and in a beautiful garden and complex. Unfortunately you describe the tour as a chaotic scenery when it is not. Sorry for the inconveniences

Do you have to book the tour in advance or you can just walk outside the port and chose a free tour?
