Like most of the locations in Costa Rica the wild life is not consistent. If you go with the guides they know where to look. Is a very nice hike with beautiful sites. Bring some good shoes or boots. Be ready for some light strenuous...More

If the brochure had said this was a nice hike in the rain forest only I probably would have been fine. We went specifically to see the wildlife and with the exception of about a dozen birds nothing was to be seen. I understand that...More

This hike was not difficult and can be done at your own pace. In fact, when you take your time you see more wildlife. Keeping your conversations to a minimum will help to not scare the wildlife away. Please bring your camera because you don't...More

A little scary as these are high bridges, but you can move quickly across them if you choose to miss the awesome views. We had monkeys traveling above us on our trip, it was raining on & off, but we are in the rain forest:)

We’ve visited the Central American rainforest on other occasions and this was definitely a good and easy formula for a full immersion experience. The path and hanging bridges are easy to hike for everyone including children and less active family members. I would recommend a...More

I took my time and abided other people in hopes of being quiet enough to see animals. I got a glimpse of a little hog running across the path at the very beginning and thought I may be in for a treat. No. Along the...More

My son and I came through, it rained a little, but that didn't deter us from seeing a group of spider monkeys fighting, and we hung back with a group that had a guide.... wish we had hired one

We started our trip (landed late) here the next day. Our guide (Anderson) was very knowledgeable and personable. He made sure everyone in the group was included and interested.

Went on a combined trip to the Volcano, the hanging bridges, the Waterfall and the hot springs. Really awesome Experience. A Good thing to Do is going on a trip and not by yourself, since the guides are really awesome and tells you so much...More

We had a guide, and were so happy we did, She saw wildlife we never would have seen on our own, and was so onformative. There is an entrance fee, and there were people doing it on there own. Beautiful walk!
