Enjoy a unique experience “flying” in comfortable and safe gondolas along the forest canopy and its hanging gardens.
Bordering the northern section of Braulio Carrillo’s National Park and only 50 minutes away from San Jose, this place hosts one of the richest canopy communities in the world and offers a relatively-unknown world of great beauty and extraordinary biological diversity.
After a late morning departure, you’ll get there at midday, just in time for lunch. Scheduled first there is a very interesting video presentation showing visitors how this great and ambitious project was built without having to cut down the native forest. A little later, your experienced guide will take you on a 30 minute easy hike along the trails, while explaining you some of the complex and intriguing relations displayed between plants, insects and other kind of animals. Finally you will participate in a one hour plus ride through different heights of the forest canopy. The tram ride is silent, so you’ll be able to appreciate not only the sights but the sounds of the rainforest.
Each one of the gondolas can carry 4 - 5 passengers plus one of the accompanying resident guides. When visiting our country, we recommend you not to miss this wonderful trip. Excellent for filming and taking pictures.
