  • The park is well kept, has signs every where for easy navigation. There was plenty of wildlife to see, and in their natural habitat which is obviously an added bonus. Place was crowded on arrival, but I have to say that the park officials do a great job of monitoring how many people can be on the bridge at once. Great place to spend 3-4 hours. I would definitely recommend as a must do when visiting the La Fortuna, Arenal area
  • Our favourite hike in Costa Rica with a 6 year old. She was able to walk all the way to the end but we did take a lot of breaks. This place is just beautiful! We saw bats, sloths and monkeys. The hanging bridges were really cool as you see the forest under your feet as you walk by. Plan to spend at least half day and take lots of water and snacks.
