The walkway consists of 8 suspension bridges connected by trails covering 1.9 miles (3km). The bridges vary from 150ft (50m) to 500ft (170m) in length and are suspended at heights ranging from 36ft (12m) to 180ft (60m). At almost 5ft (1.5m) wide, the bridge system is the widest and sturdiest in Costa Rica.
Visitors have the option of taking a self-guided treetop tour, or of joining a guided Natural History Tour. All guides are bilingual and professionally trained. Visitors will learn about the mammals, birds and plant life – particularly bromeliads, epiphytes and ferns – living in this unique eco-system, as well as hearing some of the fascinating cultural history of the region.
Guided tours can be arranged for large groups by prior reservation only.
The hanging bridges can be enjoyed by visitors of all ages and physical conditions. Children 4 years old and younger are free. Tours last up to 2.5 hours. Again, it is recommended that visitors bring long pants, suitable shoes and waterproof jackets.
