Exploring the canopy of the rainforest was initially done in the form of a hand pulled zipline.  This eventually turned into an adventure...

While most hanging bridges tours are available with or without a guide, we highly recommend going with a guide.  These guys grew up here and know how, when and where to spot the wildlife.  A good guide will almost always hear the animal first and then search for it until he spots it.  There is simply no way a visitor could do this.

The Best Canopy Hanging Bridges in Costa Rica:


Aventuras Monteverde: Aventuras Monteverde offers an affordable hanging bridges tour through the cloud forest.  The bridges are at various lengths and heights.  They also offer zipline, ATV and horseback riding tours on the site as well.

Selvatura: The Selvatura Hanging Bridges Canopy Tour is our favorite.  The tour includes 3 kilometers of hiking and crosses 8 bridges of varying lengths and heights.  Selvatura also offers a zipline tour, serpentarium, hummingbird gallery and butterfly garden.

Sky Adventures Monteverde:  Sky Adventures in Monteverde also features a hanging bridges tour.  The tour is approximately 3 hours long and includes 5 bridges of varying length with the longest at 984 feet.

Arenal Volcano

Arenal Hanging Bridges: This is our favorite canopy hanging bridges tour in the Arenal area.  The tour features several kilometers of light hiking and crosses steel bridges of varying lengths and heights. 

Sky Adventures Arenal:  Sky Adventures in Arenal is owned by the same company in Monteverde.  Similar to the Monteverde course, Sky Adventures in Arenal also features a canopy hanging bridges tour.  The tour can be combined with the zipline.
