Worried about the structure of the hanging bridge, but it was safe and fun with Carvan tour Guide. The bridges were actually easier to walk on than the walkway which was a bit uncomfortable with the concrete slabs that were uneven. Wear good shoes that...More

The temperature in Costa Rica is perfect for outdoor activities and helped to make our trek over the bridges even more pleasant. There are also great views of the Arenal volcano from various points. While I expected there to be more animals, we did finally...More
