Exploring the canopy of the rainforest was initially done in the form of a hand pulled zipline. This eventually turned into an adventure activity. As the zipline evolved, it became obvious that there still was a need to explore the canopy in a less adventurous way. The majority of wildlife in the rainforest lives in the canopy, so what better way to explore this than via small bridges? The hanging bridges started off as exactly that – hanging bridges. These were tied together with ropes and planks to step on. It didn’t take long for the concept of these bridges to evolve into a safer and more stable method of construction. These days, most Costa Rica canopy bridges are fabricated with steel and surprisingly stable.
