A very unusual experience walking ABOVE the forest rather than through it. Beautiful scenery, and very cool bridges which vibrate as you walk across them. Local guided are very knowledgeable about the flora and fauna of the region.

We went with a guide and hiked for about 1 1/2 hours crosing 6 suspension bridges and seeing monkeys, canyons, poisonous snakes, a waterfall,etc. The trail was paved in a way that helped to keep you from slipping if it is a little wet.
