While strolling through approximately two-and-one-half miles of sublime rainforest hiking trails, indiginous mammals, birds, insects and reptiles carry on with their daily activities. Curious eyes may peek at you from behind elegant, towering trees and dense vegetation. These intricate ecosystems are in balance throughout the primary and secondary rainforest. Your naturalist guide shares interesting facts about the plants and animals you encounter here. The trails slope gently as you climb to higher elevations.

Following a gentle incline, the terrain becomes somewhat more rugged. Diving deeper into the rainforest, wildlife surrounds you here. Howler monkey troops call to each other with their distinctive, throaty whoops. Raccoons scurry and investigate the foliage with their articulate, fingered paws. Laid-back sloths appear nearly frozen as they move at a molasses rate, their adorable faces curved in a lazy smile. The forest floor is a shadowed patchwork of lush greenery. Curious, capuchin monkeys swing in for a closer look. As you approach a secluded waterfall, this is a perfect place to take a break and snap a few incredible photos.

Following your photo session, the more daring in your group might decide to climb to the top of one of the waterfalls, where a Tarzan swing promises adventure. After tasting a bit of adrenaline, you may decide to take it one step further and rappel down the face of a cascading waterfall. These opportunities are available to you here.

The next stage of your journey includes a series of hanging bridges. At an elevation of nearly 250 feet above the rainforest floor, the bridges gently sway with the wind and offer beautiful views. If you find yourself unable to look down as you cross the suspension bridges, these walkways are punctuated by lookout points where you can take it all in from a stable vantagepoint.

Treetop Canopy Zip Lines

On a soaring sky trek adventure, the next part of your combo tour is a series of high-elevation, heart-pounding ziplines that crisscross the rainforest canopy and offer unforgettable vistas of Lake Arenal and Arenal Volcano. Learn the ropes, harness up and take flight on a jungle canopy experience that offers adrenaline and thrills for all. Be prepared for incredible heights and considerable speeds. This series of 6 zip lines reach velocities of up to 43 miles per hour.

Following a short practice cable, you will embark on the longest cable in the series. Spanning almost 2,500 feet, the overwhelming feeling of free-flying is hard to deny. On the last line in the series, you can spread out like Superman in an inverted harness that allows you to stretch your arms in front of you and take flight. Modern braking systems on these state-of-the-art cables guarantee soft landings as you move through the course.

If you’ve worked up an appetite from your big day of many adventures, have no fear. The on-site Chillout Restaurant is available for you to purchase a delicious meal, relax, recharge and share your stories and best moments of the day with each other.
