Owner description: While staying in Monteverde don’t miss the Sky Tram that will lead you up to the Continental Divide and to one of the highest mountains in the area. Sky Tram is a guided tour where you can have the opportunity to observe the cloud forest outstanding biodiversity, the majestic Arenal Volcano and the Nicoya Gulf.The Sky Trek’s zip lines go from mountain to mountain, allowing you fly through a cable at speeds up to 40 miles per hour and heights of over 520 feet. There are also 5 observation towers that surpass the cloud forest treetops, providing amazing panoramic views our company has a braking system that was superior to what I'd experienced in other places.The zip linesthemselvesare long and fast, when the clouds cleared, we were able to see the ocean, which was amazing. It is a really great experience.

We did the sky trek(hanging bridges) , zip lines, Sky tram and arboreal (tree climbing). The sky trek was 4/5, we had some amazing views, didn’t see any wildlife , it was mostly botanical tour.

The zip line and sky tram were amazing! It was raining and very cloudy so when you go up in the tram or do zip lines you see nothing ahead of you, which is scary but also thrilling! Since it was cloudy I didn’t see many views but I still enjoyed the zip lining through clouds.

The arboreal was amazing!!! The only advice I would give is, if you are scared of heights Do not do arboreal, you May climb the trees but at the top you have to do a jump and the cable has a control decent which brings you down slowly. In our group only I was able to jump and other people got stuck on the top and after they got tired of being up, they slowly climbed back down after staying 20 minutes up in the tree.

If you climb down after spending 20 minutes up, you waste your time there. Also I would have liked if they had proper climbing shoes and gloves for rental. It is very difficult with soft sole sneakers to maintain grip while climbing.

Also do the booking from Santa Elena town not your hotel you can ask for customized packages and you can get discounts as well depending on what activities you chose and your group size.

Very disappointed with our Sky Adventures experience. We did the tram & hanging bridges tour for $70 per person.
Spent 2 hours on the hanging bridges tour, unnecessarily slow. Could have completed it in an hour. The guide was slow.
Then we had to wait 30 mins til the tram. That lasted 45 minutes.
Then we had to wait over an hour for our return shuttle. A waste of a previous holiday day. Do not recommend!

We had a guide take us on the Suspension Bridges which was a wonderful experience. Oscar's extensive knowledge of the birds and plants added to the experience of walking across the top of the forest!
We took the tram up to the top of the mountain to begin our decent on Zip Lines!
The zip line experience is safe and an experience you will never forget. It is the most beautiful area to Zip Line!

I chickened out of zip lining at Arenal but gave it a go in Monteverde. And I am sooo glad I did. It was much more fun than I’d imagined and much less terrifying!y! The staff at both locations were professional and extremely safety conscious. This is a must on your trip to CR. In Arenal we also took the hanging bridge hike and really enjoyed it. Our guide, Francinie, was amazing and knowledgeable.
