Today you will go on an amazing half day of adventure at the Mistico Arenal Hanging Bridges Park. The bridges and trails are located in the rainforest near the majestic Arenal Volcano. All of the 15 bridges vary in height and length and provide an interesting way to observe the rainforest canopy.
Set in the rainforest near Lake Arenal, the Mistico Park is on the fringe of the Arenal Volcano National Park. While the park and surrounding area is better known for the volcano, this is an area that protects many species of wildlife. With a little luck and cooperation from Mother Nature, your bilingual guides will point out wildlife such as armadillo, toucans, deer, raccoon, coatis, sloths, and hopefully a few monkeys. Several wild cat species such as puma, ocelot and margay have been spotted in the park, though sightings of these elusive felines are uncommon.
In addition to wildlife and jungle, this is also an interesting tour as you will learn about the natural history of the Arenal Volcano area. Be prepared to hike a few kilometers of moderate terrain and bring a sense of adventure. From start to finish including round trip transportation from your hotel, the tour is expected to last around four hours, though keep in mind this can vary based on a variety of factors. It is also important to mention that for safety reasons open sandals or shoes are NOT permitted on this tour.
The Arenal Hanging Bridges is available from Arenal, Arenal Zone 2, Arenal Zone 3, Chachagua Rainforest Hotel, and Nuevo Arenal

Jason, our tour guide, was phenomenal! He was so knowledgeable and helped us get some amazing photos of all the wildlife
Not as thrilling as we expected—only a few hanging bridges, but the guides were great at pointing out all the plants and animals we would have missed without a guide.
I think it would be important for all guides to inform families and especially children not to pick up things on the trail without asking and warn of any poisonous flora that may be encountered
Did not see as many animals as was hoping
One of the best tours we did all thanks to our guide Roy. He was incredibly knowledgeable and I learned so much about Costa Rica. He made sure we saw plenty of wildlife when they appeared. Cannot recommend enough!
Great guide too!
Many times your experiences are influenced by the other people on the tour. In our case, young women more interested in talking very loudly and taking selfies. We wanted to see flora and fauna as well as the suspension bridges. So we enjoyed being up above the canopy and the views of the volcano it was disappointing. Having said all that is is not the fault of the guide or the company. I do actually think the guide wasn’t excited about the tour but agin feel he probably felt the same way we did about others on tour. I would have hated this one at peak tourist season but still glad we did it.
Great site and hike, but too few animals and too many humans. Not a bad tour choice and it is still nature so no guarantees, but just too busy.
The pick up was a bit late but other than that, everything was great. Very knowledgeable guide and they provided us fruit snacks after.
On the day we went it was rainy, not a lot of animals to view.
The guide was great and very friendly but it would have been nice if he had a spotting scope as we missed out on seeing a lot of
Hanging bridges became too repetitive to be exciting after a while.
A bit of wait to enter (~30 minutes)...I know it's busy during that time.
Efficient and easy. Wonderful tour and guide.
It was really clear that the guide Martin loved what he did for a living and was excited to share his love with us. Made a great experience.
This was a very good tour. The only reason my ratings aren't higher is because the other tours we had already done were so great. This is definitely a worthwhile tour, but if you have to choose between ziplining or the sloth tour, do those first.
Least favorite excursion. A busy day, so there were lines to go over the bridge. The guide was very knowledgeable, but one member of our group was scheduled to catch transportation after the tour, so we were rushed through to make up for the wait times at the beginning of the tour.
A little drawn out because of too much waiting at bridges.
Can I say 10 +
The tour guides went above and beyond to ensure that we got back in time for our transfer.
Had hoped to see a little more wildlife besides the racoons. The bridges were awesome!
The guide did a great job!
Great tour and guide.
Our guide Rebecca was fantastic - such a lovely person and incredibly knowledgeable.
Hoped for more animal/bird sightings.
It was as a nice tour but crowded.
very informative and fun experience
Great tour and fun.
Great tour and experience. Our guide was a little inexperienced (especially compared to the one at Manuel Antonio) but very friendly and worked hard to make sure we saw as much as possible.
The tour was amazing and our guide was great and very knowledgeable. He even stopped the van on our way back to the hotel to show us a sloth and an anteater that were in a tree by the side of the road!
Very well informed guide. Overall great experience.
Not quite what I thought this was going to be. I thought this was going to be more of a hike with a lot of hanging bridges, and it was more of a hike with a couple of hanging bridges
Our guide, Martin, was awesome and spotted things we would never have seen. Loved the bridges. Loved the hike!
Alvaro was the best! So knowledgeable and nice.
Guide was ok; didn’t see that much and moved a bit slowly
Differently! This activity was well planned and organized.
Tour guide was great, Eddy. Only thing I would have liked would be more time. Felt a bit rushed from when we got there till we left, would have liked a little more time at the lookout to take photos, or even explore some of the other trails.
Nice tour, was good with my parents who are older.
Weather was only issue.
I really loved this tour, our guide was phenomenal. He was incredibly knowledgeable, and this tour would not have been the same without him! We would not have found anything!
I also loved the views from the bridges and the park was great and well preserved.
Great experience, all the family definitely enjoyed
This was a great first activity. It was the right amount of "thrill" for my youngest child. It was a bit of a early excursion after a long day of travel the day before but it was nice. We saw some interesting birds, reptiles and insects. Our guides were essential in pointing out the wildlife.
Upon reflection, I do wish we had done some independent hiking inside the actual Arenal Volcano national park. I also heard the waterfall was worth it. I guess we'll have to come back!
Our guide was able to point out the tiniest tree frog, a sloth, and many other fascinating things
Excellent guide, super knowledgeable.
Exceeded our expectations. The guide was great! Very knowledgeable and enthusiastic. Found all kinds of wildlife on our hike.
Our tour guide was wonderful and knew so much about the ecology of the area. We enjoyed it very much!
Really fun, saw a ton of animals and the tour guide was had incredible expertise.
The crowds made this experience somewhat disappointing. Because of long wait times at some of the bridges, we couldn't finish the complete hike, since guide and some in our group had afternoon activities as well. What we saw and experienced was great!
great guide and very helpful.
Guide was awesome and helped us take photos when animals or plants noticed. Very knowledgeable.
At times it was crowded and we had to wait to get on bridges. Our guide filled the time talking to us.
Courteous guides and very informative amazing views and experience. It was amazing how many animals were hiding in plain sight.
This was a great tour to get out and see the rain forest. We saw several species of animals and our guide was fantastic about locating them. He also took photos for us all along the way. You get to see the rain forest at different levels. It is alot of walking so wear comfortable shoes.
This tour was really good but just not as fantastic as the other tours we did.
Saw very few animals
We didn't realize there were many hanging bridges to cross. It was a bit scary but it was thrilling and we all loved it.
the tour guide pointed out some fun animal life and remembered to summarize at the end, but made a lot of attempts at jokes that completely fell flat and was awkward. at one point we had a family behind us with their own tour guide and the woman was complaining very loudly about "having paid a lot of money so they didn't have to wait behind these large tour groups" (ours had about 10 people in it). The paths were pretty single file at some points. What the tour guides should have is a system for these situations where they can be more aware of each other and better set expectations for their people touring.
Great tour and great guide. We were so lucky to see some exciting wildlife, wish I could have gone even earlier (crack of dawn) to see more as the wildlife was my favorite part of the trip :)
The van was roomy and clean. The guides were friendly and spoke English well. The tour was just the right amount of time, but they ran about an hour behind, so the tour ended right at dark. Other than that, it was a great experience!
An amazing tour guide. Exceeded my expectations
George and Martin were wonderful. Excellent knowledge of flora and fauna. They love their country and are excited to share it with visitors.
Another fantastic guide and experience. The guides are great at pointing out animals and insects that I would have totally missed. The guides are great at taking pictures of the animals with your phone utilizing their telescopes. The scenery was breathtaking. It felt like we were walking on top of the jungle.
Absolutely beautiful views!
Very nice and beautiful
Really beautiful. We got engaged on this tour!
The tour guide was so good at explaining everything to us that he might think we would find interesting. He was great!
Wonderful. We had hoped to eat lunch at the restaurant but our guide didn't have time to let us do that.
Joedan was Exceptional and really, really made the tour fantastic. Well done!!
great tour. Our guide was very knowledgeable.
This tour got a lot of hype and it was good but wasn't amazing. The guide was nice but didn't seem to know more than the basic information. Saw some monkeys and a couple other animals. Thought the bridges would be a bit more impressive.
This was my favorite activity, we got to see a lot of wild life thanks to the guide. He took the time to find the wild life and helped us take pictures through the scope.
Awesome tour. Loved getting to walk across the hanging bridges and looking out over the rainforest. Our guide was amazing. Only downside was that we had another group with use on the tour with two young boys that were not very well behaved, but that was not the tours fault and our guide handled it very well.
This was possibly one of my favorite excursions! The bridges were so cool, and my guide was fantastic. It's been a dream of mine to visit the rainforest, ever since I was a child, and being able to see frogs and birds and other animals in their natural environment was amazing. My guide was incredibly knowledgeable, and it made the tour even better.
Tour was great!
What a fantastic tour! Our tour guide was incredible and we saw so much wildlife and learned so much about the rain forest. We saw a tarantula , owls, monkeys, snakes, frogs, leaf cutters, hummingbirds, etc.
Our guide/driver gravin was so wonderfully funny! I loved the beauty of the place. The hidden things he was able to show is.
Tour guide made it a lot of fun. Highly recommended
Beautiful tour. Andres was a wonderful guide and very knowledgeable.
Our guide Mauricio made the trip ! The place was a bit too crowded for our taste.
Very beautiful views, we didn’t see many animals and it was a little slow for me.
Jorge, our guide, totally made this trip. He was able to point out several things we would have missed if we had been on our own. The forest was pretty quite the day we went so we didn't get to see a lot of animals, but it was still a really neat experience.
Loved this tour, especially that we ended up with a private tour and the park was not busy at all.
Our guides were very knowledgeable and patient with answering our 100 questions.
It could have been longer... but then again I could walk in the Costa Rica forest with a guide all day!
We loved everything about this excursion.
Great tour guide, knowledgable! and very helpful getting pictures, etc.
Tour guide Brian was excellent!
Didn't see much wildlife but that's not the guides fault. Just bad luck.
Guides were great. Wildlife sightings were disappointing. Pretty cool to experience the bridges.
Again, the guide was excellent: knowledgeable, interesting, and funny, and we saw lots of wildlife and unique tropical tree species.
The guide was SUPER informative, friendly and really worked to ensure all of us were engaged in the activity. His accent was a bit hard to understand at times but he was always patient and willing to repeat himself. Took extra time with my kids to help them spot the animals and spoke to them at 'their level' so they remained engaged on the 2 mile walk.
Good but very crowded
I was not expecting it to be so busy there but otherwise the trip was fantastic. The guide was so knowledgeable and the walk was in a gorgeous setting. We got to see wildlife up really close (close enough to touch!). The bridges were also lots of fun and the views were spectacular.
The drive was not far, the experience was amazing, and the guide made our excursion so enjoyable and informative. He was very knowledgeable and spotted little frogs, bats, and other wildlife that we would never have noticed! Would definitely recommend this to my friends!
Calm and easy walk but a lovely area. Plenty of animals and waterfalls, great volcano view, and the bridges are fun..
very knowledgeable guide , very friendly , took good care of everybody
Guides were knowledgeable and friendly, and spoke excellent English. Seeing the wildlife, much of which we would not have found on our own, was wonderful.
Our guide, Pierre, was the best overall guide we had on the entire trip. His naturalist knowledge was AMAZING. He also generously shared all his photos.
Our guide was fine, but pretty serious. The tour was fine, but nothing amazing.
The driver was on time and helpful with questions.
Our guide was fantastic! It was just a little long, I would have liked a slightly faster pace.
Very crowded. No wildlife. Not very exciting. However, the guide was quite good. We would have liked a more isolated and challenging hike.
More crowded than I expected even on a rainy day. Saw a little wildlife but less than an Manuel Antonio.
We expected to see more wildlife and birds in this trip. However we enjoyed
Guide was very knowledgeable.
The walk with Bridan was great. he was so passionate about CR, birds, nature and conservation. I really enjoyed our walk in the woods with him.I would have liked to be in a smaller group. 14 of us was too much to hear and interact
The tour guides were very knowledgeable and friendly
Very little wildlife was seen, neat walk through the Rain Forest.
Mainly disappointed as it was raining throughout and therefore saw much less animals and birds then would have expected. Can't really control the natural elements so no ones fault.
The guide, Alvaro's, English was difficult to understand. The group was quite big too. The park was interesting and the concept of being able to experience the tree canopy was good.
Not up to expectations.
A good tour but there were few animals to see. Mostly plants. We understand that nature is unpredictable but having seen more wildlife would have meant 10 out of 10.
Although the guide knew English, he seemed to have a limited knowledge about the reserve. He was very friendly but we felt the tour would have been better had he been able to tell us more about what we were seeing.
The guide did not seem as knowledgeable as a few of the other guides I overheard along the path. However, overall it was a great experience.
Overall experience rating was lowered because there were some obnoxious people on our tour with us. But the tour and the guide were great.
Guide was SUPER!!!!! So informative and smart. He made the experience great!
Loved this tour, there were an older couple on the tour who couldn't complete it due to their physical limitations and the guide handled it very gracefully. The guide was great, he was the best we had during our time in Costa Rica.
I needed to use a Banos at the middle of the long trek...
Our driver/guide was on time & courteous. After we arrived to the Bridges, he proved to be a knowledgeable guide & showed us many otherwise overlooked/unseen small & large animals, birds, frogs, snakes.
This is the best experience we have in Costa Rica. Our guide was very knowledgeable and took care to make sure everyone not miss anything. Not only he pointed out things to see, he also shared a lot of facts. We learnt a lot. I also appreciated that the tour provided us with water and binoculars! And the guide also helped us with taking family pictures as well as pointing out good picture opportunities.
This was a nice introduction to the rain forest. The walk was easy and the guide was knowledgeable. This was a perfect first activity. We likely would have not enjoyed it as much if it came after zip lining or some of our other activities, but it was an excellent way to start, especially after a long day of travel the day before.
Thank you so much to our guide. We thouroughly enjoyed the tour and the experience! We got to see plenty of wildlife and safely crossed all the bridges.
Joe, our tour guide, was super! What a beautiful experience. Loved it.
Our guide was really great. What a great eye! And his monocular was amazing. I loved that he brought a tripod and we could all see exactly what he was pointing at.
Wonderful experience. Again excellent guide with good spoken English
It was wonderful! Almost changed it to do something else, but so glad we didn't. The place and views were beautiful! The guide was very knowledgeable. I would recommend, if possible, to book all English speaking or all Spanish speaking on one tour so the poor guide doesn't have to say everything twice.
Wish it hasn't been as rainy, but it is a rain forest. We saw a eyelash viper, but didn't see too many birds or other animals. bridges were nice and very well maintained. Guides were great.
Really fun experience. Weather was perfect. Saw lots of animals. Guide was great.
Great guide (Elena), great views and a good amount of bridges.
Guide was very knowledgeable and allowed time to stop for photos. We wouldn't have seen half of the wildlife we did without him.
Good knowledgeable guide.
Very cool experience! We definitely recommend.
This was a fantastic tour except for the torrential downpour.
The guides was very knowledgeable. The experience was awesome!
Loved the hanging bridges
I believe Pierre was our guide for this tour. He was the best guide I've ever had. He even took hundreds of photos that were of professional quality, and he sent them all to us for free.
Fun tour. Informative guide.
Personally a bit slow of a tour for my liking - I would have liked a longer but faster tour
This was a lot of fun- the guide was really knowledgable and helped us to become familiar with many things about Costa Rica that we would not have known otherwise! The activity was a little more strenuous than expected- but we made it!
I was very pleased with this tour. Pierre was our tour guide. He was very informative and patient. He did not rush us through and pointed out lots of plants, animals and insect along the way. He also took pictures for us so we could just enjoy being there. His pictures were amazing shots.
We learned so much from our guide. They were knowledgeable, timely, patient, transportation was clean and we felt very safe.
This was beautiful and unique. We should have gone on our own to hike it. It would have saved money and been much less time. This was more of a nature hike for people who really wanted to focus on the insect and reptilian wildlife in the area. For that it was great. We were expecting more adventure and less nature hike.
a lot of climbing in the rain
Tour was fun and the whole family enjoyed it.
Great tour with a very knowledgable guide, he had a great eye for finding wildlife!
Transportation worked well and our guide was informative and patient.
The hanging bridges are very cool and worth the visit. We had a lot of great guides over the vacation and these were just okay.
So so amazing!! Tour guide was incredible! Got to see wonderful wildlife and the rainforest was incredible!
best tour guide of my entire trip. please keep using this company, especially Esteban, the guide.
Our guide was well informed. Just wish we would have seen more wild life. George of the jungle was a great guide
We had a bit of trouble understanding the guide but he was very knowledgable. We very much appreciated how cautious the driver was.
It was pretty good. Pleasant but may not as interesting as I had expected. However no complaints
Really enjoyed this tour!
Not much to say; it was everything we thought it would be. The guide was great and knowledgeable, and we even got rained on a little (seemed fitting since we were in a rain forest)
Tour guide was prepared and efficient but we would have liked longer in the park and time to go a little slower and down to the waterfall. The free photos were a nice touch.
Fantastic experience. well worth the visit. Guide was excellent
Great experience. We got lucky since the park wasn't very crowded.
Excellent guide - Alvero.
This tour was amazing. The hike was beautiful. The guide was very fun, friendly, and well educated.
Nice area but very crowded and our leader was not that friendly and passed up opportunities to show and educate on som species that other tour guides were showing.
We had members of the group who made it a little bit of a drag. No fault to the actual tour.
Mostly good, wait at each of the swinging bridges.
Pedro of the jungle, our guide, was absolutely amazing, so knowledgeable and friendly!
Fantastic tour guide. Really knowledgeable and was great with the young kids!
Guide was awesome - knowledgeable, friendly, and gave other suggestions on things like places to eat and to go. Was surprised to not see more wildlife. I thought there would be more birds and butterflies and stuff.
Very knowledgeable and personable guide.
Pierre was one of the best guides ever!
I wish there was more animal life but that is out of your control! BEAUTIFUL hike.
Our guide Steven was great!!!
I survived this excursion (I hate heights), loved the guide, appreciated the experience, but again it was about 90 min from our hotel.
not much wildlife.
Guide was very patient, however the tour should be longer so that participants have more time to take photos
Our guides did a great job, but the only thing that made this tour slightly less enjoyable was the extremely large groups at the park. I wish they would limit the size of the groups allowed in the park and on the tours.
The tour and area were very over crowded. It would have been nicer to go somewhere a little more remote
We’re able to see animals and learn some information about the location.
We had an excellent tour through the rain forest. Our guide was very educated and able to share biology lessons with the group in a fun and meaningful way. The bridges felt safe, and my 11 year old and I will remember this always.
the guide was good and so were the bridges; but i must say i thought we would see more animals at least that is the way it was described to me; we barely saw anything; actually not hardly one animal; the bridges were fun but the tour was a little boring truthfully
Our guide was exceptional! He was very knowledgeable about all the animals that we seen and Costa Rica in general. He spoke excellent English. It was a fantastic tour!
Beautiful place, but more hiking would have been great. Also, because it was peak season the trails were crowded. We had a wonderful time!
Again, the guide was great. You even ordered a sunny day.
It rained. We did not see many animals. The tour guide (Sadie?) was very nice but did not find a lot of wildlife. The scenery was wonderful.
Guide was excellent and knowledgable
This was a great guided tour - and one would miss so much if they did not have a guide.
Sadis was a great guide with great passion for wildlife
Absolutely amazing tour guide, Pierre. He was so knowledgeable and really brought the whole forest to life with his explanations of what we saw and we're experiencing. I would hesitate to recommend him to any of my friends.
For whatever reason, we saw very few animals, although our guide was great pointing out tiny things (bats, insects, a viper) on our walk. It was a beautiful walk, but may not have been worth the price overall given how little we saw in the canopy.
Guide was great, very informative. She pointed out many things in the forest that we would have walked past without seeing them.
Guide was fantastic really good experience
Transfer Great. Guide Excellent and knowledgeable. This was a very nice excursion. Great Day
This was a wonderful morning. Quite something to experience the rainforest. Our guide was very knowledgeable and had an incredile eye for spotting even the smallest of creatures. The bridges were very cool.
All on time and very lively guide. Good animal spotting too.
Guide for this tour, Yara, was wonderful. So knowledgeable and interesting.
Joedan was a great guide.
Wonderful hike, amazing tour guide. Dont recall name of tour company but guide was very knowledgeable ..
Amazing and beautiful place, scary bridges for anyone who has any semblance of vertigo. Knowledgeable and passionate guide (Pierre) who was exceptionally attentive and helpful to the extent of taking numerous photos for all individual and groups on the experience including panoramic pics from the middle of the 30M high hanging bridge!!! A nice experience overall.
Saydes was our tour guide, she was kind, helpful, friendly and knew so many things that the tour was a true joy! It was a beautiful tour, and better with the guide. Pickup was smooth as well.
Elena was a great guide! Super knowledgeable and friendly.
This tour was great. I really love that it's off season. We were very lucky to have gotten a picture on the bridge and have the view of the Arenal volcano. Our tour guide Elena was also wonderful. Not only she's knowledgeable but also made sure we are good, taking our photos and making the our trip wonderful.
Loved this tour and our guide was fantastic.
This tour was nice, but a little boring. We didn't see as many animals as we would have liked. It was beautiful, but just not as fun as the others. The guide was very nice, but talked A LOT:-)
Amazing! The tour guide was great! I’m not sure how to spell her name, Sedis? She was fabulous and the experience was amazing.
I have mixed emotions about this tour because the place was truly beautiful. I expected the rain and guide warned us about it, yet when it did start raining he completely stopped looking for animals or talking about the place and just rushed us through bridges. When we got to the bus they offered wet (!!) towels to refresh, would have been nice to have dry ones if they decide to provide that at all.
Difficult for my husband. Harder than expected
Very knowledgeable tour guide. Took extra time to answer questions and had interesting facts and stories. Loved it.
Didn't see much of anything unfortunately. We opted to go on to the volcano tour but again didn't see much at all. Not good value.
Loved it! Loved our guide too.
This is a very popular tour so this means sometimes waiting for a gap between groups to have time to take photos. The walk round was really interesting and the views from the bridges were good.
Another great activity
Our guide (who was female and can not remember her name), was very knowledgeable and friendly. Answered questions, helped take pictures, pointed out things we would never have seen on our own. Lovely tour!
Knowledgeable guide, beautiful rainforest! Tour can be a little long, but we enjoyed it!
It was no fault of the guide. It was pouring that morning so the animals were scarce.
It rained hard during our hanging bridges tour and to me it enhanced an already amazing place. Our guide, she was great, friendly and knows a lot about the flora and fauna. I am so sorry but I can't recall her name.
I had been skeptical about this tour since the Monteverde sky walk experience. More bridges, a longer trek, and more strenuous trails between the bridges. So after arriving and hiking a few hundred yards uphill, we decided not to continue. The guide was understanding.
There were 3 of us on the tour. The guide was awesome. He took his time answering our questions never go impatient.
Wonderful guide, he tried very hard to show us everything and had a book to look up anything he did not know the name of. We enjoyed conversation with him, very nice young man.
Our guide was knowledgeable about the area and the wildlife we saw.
There were TOO many people and NOTHING to see - we should leave at 6am!
Great tour but raining. . Still very enjoyable
Great tour! and tourguide!
It was more of a walk than an adventure. I did learn some things about the rain forest and Costa Rica so that was very nice.
We expected a less crowded environment than the one we experienced, which took away from the 'wilderness' experience. Our tour group kept bumping up against other groups, or were bumped by following groups. The facility should do a better job of spacing out the groups. That being said, we did see some interesting wildlife.
Again my fault. Maybe I expected too much. I was hoping to see much more wildlife. Our guide (Aaron?) was excellent and I felt he knew a lot more than Rebecca.
Left late because they had car trouble but they sent us a fruit basket (unexpected but very nice touch). Guide had heavy accent but fine. Sometimes forgot to wait for all of us (only 4) when talking. We saw some amazing wildlife.
Great tour guide
Isaak Mendez was another exceptional guide. Marvelous personality, helpful, friendly, and knowledgeable. Outstanding tour.
The guide was delightful and managed the various abilities of the people on our tour. She was knowledgable and very friendly and we had a great day.
Great knowledgeable and personable guide
Guide was great
An enjoyable experience through old growth rainforest.
wonderful place! definitely recommend for tourists.
Beautiful experience. Have already recommended this location to friends
Loved our tour guides and the experience. They were knowledgeable and had so much passion for the landscape of Costa Rica.
Was hoping for more animal siteings and discussion about fauna and animals
It was raining during our tour which influenced the rating but realize that is completely uncontrollable.
lots of people sort of crowded but liked it
Great trip, super friendly people. I would only have appreciated more time to visit the gift shop.
Our tour guide, Pierre, was absolutely fantastic.
Enjoyable and interesting experience
Very well done. They took care to cater to our children. Lots to see and everyone had fun.
Van was very nice and comfortable. Guides were friendly and very informative.
Cedes our guide was very knowledgeable and made our tour adventurous. I loved the fact that the trails were nicely paved and the views were absolutely majestic.
Great tour, and everything was very professional and informative.
We were so impressed with all of tours. The punctuality of the pick-up times were amazing. Mistico Bridges was a great hike. The guide was fantastic.
More guidelines could be provided as to the fitness requirements to get the most out of this tour. Wonderful guide, beautiful setting, but more physically challenging than expected.
Unbelievable. The guide was superb and informative. A great trip.
Our guide was WONDERFUL! Definitely one of the best.
Amazing, beautiful. Loved it!
Was nice to see the rainforest and walk on the bridges but was expecting to see more animals.
Once again our transfer and guide were amazing!
Unfortunately I missed this tour- but the rest of the family enjoyed it. Looking forward to take this tour when I return to Costa Rica
It was a bit scary but overall it was very informing and the plants were beautiful
unbelievably good guide. He could spot things that we would have never, ever seen. We were incredibly lucky to see sloths, howler monkey (right on the bridge with us), a snake and birds etc... My 9 year old began the walk crying and grumpy because of a bit of rain, but this guide changed her mood immediately with his skill.
Not many hanging bridges. Monte verde would have been better.
we loved our guide, sades. I think her name was, you could tell she really loves her country and knows her stuff.
There were several other groups there at the same time so it got crowded at times, but it was good. We didn't get to see as many animals as we had hoped for but we knew that might happen.
Pierre was a great tourguide. Very knowledgeable and excited and passionate. It was a lovely experience.
Good way to see the rainforest and guide was very funny...can't remember his name.
Rain rain go away!
Didn't get to see much wildlife due to the rain but trail was nice and guide was fun and knowledgeable
Our tour guide, Pierre, has multiple master's degrees, and a PhD in entomology. Boy, he's smart. Really knows what he's talking about. Fantastic outing!
Tour was Excellent.
Very knowledgeable and friendly guide.
Our guide was friendly. She was very knowledgeable about snakes and amphibians but was weak on tree and bird identification. Overall we enjoyed the tour.
There were a lot of people there the day we went. Not a lot of animals. We did see some monkeys but was disappointed because I expected a jungle animal adventure. Seemed too touristy.
Ramon was a great guide - we learned a lot during the tour and really enjoyed being in the rainforest and seeing the bridges.
Excellent and knowledgeable guide, a very pleasant tour.
This place is beautiful. Our guide was very informative and fun.
Not my favorite type of experience. No mention anywhere about type of shoe required
We were "forgotten" for our pickup time- we called, and another van was dispatched to collect us, so we were 45 mins late joining the tour. We felt bad because we delayed everyone else, although it was not our fault. Can't say enough positive things about our guide, Pierre. he was absolutely brilliant. A fantastic tour.
Guide was very good pacing the tour to accommodate the wide range of ages in the group. Made sure we saw all types of things--including ants! Facilities were some of the nicest I have ever seen at a tourist attraction.
great tour our guide was like a walking encyclopedia just wish we would have seen more wild life but once again the views are amazing.
We hoped to see more wildlife, especially birds; but we still saw lots of beauty.
This was a wonderful tour, hike. Very informative.
I probably wouldn't recommend this tour because the groups are too large and diverse (3 languages for each comment from the guide - why not have groups per language?) If doing this walk by myself I would have gone much faster and enjoyed it just as much.
This was beautiful. It rained that day but still it was a great experience. Our guide was very great too.
Guide seemed to be new and have a rather rehearsed presentation. I could have done with a few less hanging bridges.
The tour guide was very knowledgeable. Overall we enjoyed the tour. However, we shared the tour with a couple who spoke only French. So the tour was given in French and English. As a result the tour took very long. By the time it finished we were tired.
Was good, beautiful surroundings and views. Guide was good, didn't see much unusual but enjoyed the tour.
very interesting hike
Expecting old type hanging bridges, disappointing they are new and metal. Guide was very knowledgeable on plant life - but we would have preferred a little less sharing. I was still a good tour, just had different expectation.
We didn't end up seeing a lot of animals but that cannot be controlled.
The guide was fabulous which made it an overall great experience.
Bridges were not as impressive as expected, guide was just ok.
This was my favorite tour of the whole trip!
We loved the Hanging Bridges tour!!
Great guide, super views,very interesting to visit
It was better than expected. The guide was very good and it was a nice experience.
The only thing I would have changed was that I had more time taking pictures, recording etc. The guide seemed to be in a rush at times even though there was only one other guest outside of our group; a total of 3. This was the one tour where I had the least amount of pictures to look at. The Hanging Bridges was thrilling for me since I had never been on a suspended bridge that high. I found it to be scary! The park was very nice and photogenic.
excellent guide and tour. thoroughly enjoyed it!
It was nice to have a paved walk & enjoyed the tour. Angie's English wasn't quite as good as some, or maybe it was because she had a pretty thick accent & spoke fast. Slowing down would help. She also answered some questions with very vague answers ("that was a bird", "howler monkeys can be heard from some distance" - we had learned from Jason it was 3 miles).
Alfonso was very knowledgeable, excellent guide.
Gabriel our guide was wonderful! He took his time with us and was very informative as well as enthusiastic! Loved him and the driver!
No ones fault that it rained most of the time so we didn't get to see as much wildlife as I had hoped. I think the guide was in a bit of a hurry to get through because of the rain.
Despite the rain, it was an amazing tour. The guide (Alfonso?) was extremely knowledgeable, kind, and helpful.
My grandson loved it. I found it a little difficult because of all the climbing. The constant rain didn't hamper us and I certainly did not need the hiking boots which were recommended.
It rained the entire time, which obviously nothing could be done about, however the guide Yarenis was very good. We were surprised that it was a private tour as it was only my wife and I. That was wonderful.
Our tour guide, Christian, was amazing! His knowledge and enthusiasm made the tour very special for us.
No real complaint. Rosa was a great guide, friendly, informative, sweet. It was beautiful. We had an expectation that we would see more wildlife. Saw very little wildlife, but learned lots about the ecosystem, plant life, etc.
It lacked a little in seeing animals but the tour guide was awesome
We had a good time. This company did a great job. The guide was very knowledgable and pointed out a lot of things for us to see. She was very patient with us as we were taking pictures at every bridge.
We had an amazing time on this tour! We saw so many animals, and our guide, Gabriel, was terrific. One of the highlights of our trip.
Used a subcontracted van driver which was okay overall. Guide hurried through the area at times so we didn't have a chance to see as much as we had hoped.
Everything was great: the tour guide was very informative and fun and our group was entertaining. Fabulous day in the forest...
Our tour guide Rosa was very knowledgeable. We had an amazing time and saw a lot of animals!
We were disappointed not to see more wild life on this trip. However, the view of the rainforest from the canopy is undeniably unique.
Everything went very smooth. Jungle was so nice!!
No wildlife at all on this experience. The guide said they get really see anything because too many people
A very enjoyable experience. Glad we went.
I was hoping to see more animals, but I realize that is completely out of the control of the guide.
In fairness, it was raining, but guide could hardly wait to get out of there. He talked only to one or two people at "front " of the line and quickly walked along the path. Questions about fauna, not answered (did not know answers?) or was just wanting to get leave the area as soon as possible?
The guide was very knowledgeable - spoke a couple different languages.
Guide was great as was the hike.
Not quite sure what I expected, so I only rated it as a 5. The guide was knowledgeable but too soft spoken on this particular trip and didn't wait for the people at the back of the group. Probably just the people we were with, but they seemed to take over all the attractions.
This was a bigger tour than we'd had , so we needed to get used to so many people - and that the area was crowded with tourists. I was delighted to see the natural beauty of the place and be in the canopy.
beautiful scenery but no animals or birds at all
