Overview
More
Half way between the town of Santa Elena and the Santa Elena Preserve the Sky Walk is located: This complex use trails, suspension bridges for a more tranquil introduction to the ecology and natives of the forest canopy, constructed within the cloud forest. It allows a vision of the forest from a different perspective which starts with a walk on the ground taking you up to explore the treetops, a hardly discovered habitat, called the “canopy” with a naturalist guide. Also discover the night wildlife at our Sky Walk Night Tour.

A well organised tour, from humming birds to the elusive Quetzal and almost face to face with the howler monkeys crossing above the walk way

The skywalk isn't too far away from the town centre up a winding gravel track. There is a large, modern reception building with good facilities. Then it's an uphill path to the first of five suspension bridges which gradually increase in length. You are right...More

This is well worth a visit. There are 6 hanging bridges that sway but very safe. We had amazing hot weather but of course it can rain. We only saw monkeys in the distance and we saw no birds but we went mid morning. Maybe...More

This place is wonderful. Must less crowded than the similar Selvatura. During most of the Skywalk we were completely alone in the forest. The hanging bridges were high and very long, really allowing you to look down on the rainforest. Really loved this place.
