The sky tram and skywalk in Monteverde is a mixture that will take you to see the canopy of the forest at its best. Most of the relations and interactions happen on the tops of the trees, as this is the area where light and water come first.
You will enjoy these experiences in the Sky Adventures Park in Monteverde. A private sanctuary created in the cloud forests by a local family.
They have been quite successful in running safe and sustainable adventures since 1999.
There are 131 kinds of mammals, including white-faced howler and spider monkeys, two and three-toed sloths, coatimundis, agoutis, tayras, and jaguars. You may also find several sorts of snakes and vipers, poison dart frogs, and over 400 species of birds. Some of the most usual in the park are the toucans, and aracaris, owls, trogons, kites, and hawks and several sorts of hummingbirds.
The Sky Tram ascends through a beautiful cloud forest mountain and supports the tours stopping on the way for wildlife, or explanations of the naturalist tour guide.
You will be on a six-people comfortable gondola where, if necessary, you can stand. It is open, and each gondola has its naturalist guide.
It is a slow-paced, nice ride that you will enjoy thoroughly.
As you arrive at the top platform, you will find two observation towers from where you can observe the Caribbean Coast and the other one to see the Pacific Ocean and the Nicoya Peninsula.
A unique possibility to deeply enjoy the cloud forest at a more deliberate pace.
As you walk slowly in the forest, not only the chances to see wildlife increase, but also there is more time to take in the beauty, the sounds, the colors, and the varied aromas.
Suspension bridges range up to 236 meters (774 feet) in length and heights up to 70 meters (230 feet), and each allows a separate view of the canopy.
The Sky Walk will show you the secrets of the ecosystem, the creatures that live in it, and their interactions.
Your local naturalist guide walks this trail quite often, so they know where to see specific birds or animals. Plus, they will tell you everything about the natural history of this fantastic habitat.
