The Monteverde Cloud Forest is a can’t-miss part of any visit to Costa Rica, but you can do more than just visit.
You can zipline above the tropical canopy to get a bird’s eye view of one of the most beautiful natural wonders in Central America.
The Selvatura zipline and hanging bridge combo tour takes you high into the canopy for all the excitement and natural beauty you could ever ask for.
You haven’t seen the Monteverde Cloud Forest until you’ve seen it from 500 feet in the air.
That’s how high you will go on the self-guided hanging bridge tour. Take your time to see vibrantly colored birds, marvel at diverse plant life, and breathe in the refreshing rainforest air.
Just when you think you have seen everything there is to see in the Cloud Forest canopy, it’s time to strap in and take off on the zipline portion of this tour. Get a new perspective on Costa Rica’s stunning natural sights by flying through them at breathtaking speed.
The tour offers 15 cables for a total of 2.2 miles.These cables, some as long as a kilometer, can satisfy even the most die-hard adrenaline enthusiast.
And while your heart is pumping and your smile is widening, take a moment to appreciate the fact that you are doing something that was once reserved only for wildlife, scientists, and locals who were talented enough to climb into the canopy.
The thrills don’t stop at cable 15. After you have become a certified flying ace on the ziplines, you get one more chance to take your adrenaline levels to new heights. We call it the Tarzan Swing.
It is basically what it sounds like — a highly secured rope on which thrill-seekers can swing through the Cloud Forest at speeds that would make Tarzan proud.
For an additional fee, you can skip Tarzan-level swinging and shift into full Superman flight mode. Fly through the canopy like the Man of Steel to create a memory you won’t soon forget — and one you won’t be able to create anywhere else. Monteverde’s Selvatura Park is the only such park in the area that offers the Superman experience.
The Selvatura Park zipline and hanging bridge tour package is recommended for most people between the ages of 8 and 65, with the exception of pregnant women and those with waist sizes over 42 inches.
The tour lasts for five hours and includes your transportation and entrance fees. It runs every day throughout the year except in cases of inclement weather.
Daily tours begin at the following times:8:30 a.m.11 a.m.1 p.m.
Come fully prepared for the experience by packing light clothing, a camera, binoculars, insect repellent, and secure, comfortable shoes.
There’s no better way to take in the Monteverde Cloud Forest than from the sky. Expect natural beauty, wildlife, and pure adventure on the Selvatura Zipline and Hanging Bridge Combo Tour. No other tour experience allows you to fly like Superman, swing like Tarzan, and explore nature like a true adventurer.
Don’t miss this opportunity to enrich your Costa Rica vacation and create memories that will last a lifetime.
