We went to Rainforest Adventures for the aerial tram ride through the "rain forest" so that we could see native wild life. It was hard to find the place. We stopped at a gas station and told them we were going to the Rainforest aerial tram. They told us that rainforests were a long way away (meaning there wasn't any... More

This is a well run attraction. We had an excellent guide throughout called Arron. We took the gondola canopy ride and he told us about the trees and animals and birds that lived or migrated through it. He could answer any question posed. We saw two toucans and lots of birds. After his he showed us plants and illustrated their... More

Whilst the 'Tranopy' experience is expensive it is worth doing. The trip up through the canopy of the rain forest is fantastic with the possibility of seeing both birds and mammals in the lofty environment. Our guide was great and provided us with sufficient useful commentary to make the trip both entertaining and relaxing. We managed to see quite a... More

We chose the adrenaline junkie package & was not disappointed. During the tram ride we saw several monkeys & toucans & saw even more during our zipline adventure. The waterfall climb & skybridge crossing are a must. Also, I can't say enough about how great the guides were. Book online & save 10%!

We did the zipline here and it was quite fun. We've done a few other ziplines in Costa Rica and other places, and this one was good but not as good as the ones in Monteverde. It's a little pricier and geared for cruise ship tourists. But here you get to ride a tram up the mountain and the views... More

We opted for the zip lining adventure as a family experience. Absolutely loved it! Our children, 8 and 10 felt pretty safe as the instructors are super professional and well trained. Don't hold your breath trying to see some wild animals on the gondola ride up thought. I would say that was the only disappointing part. The view from the... More

The firs half of the trip you are lower down and often brushing the floor of the rainforest which is lovely, then the final half... More
