The Hanging Bridges of Costa Rica


We can't think of a better way to experience the forest than getting up-close and personal with nature in the tree canopy and what better way to do this than via a network of hanging bridges and trails through the forest. You can get a birds eye view with or without a guide, but we think a guide enhances the tour and you will get a lot more out of it, they will point out wildlife, plants and insects, things that you might otherwise miss, make the most of their invaluable knowledge.

What might you see along the way? Keep your eyes peeled for howler monkeys, spider monkeys, frogs, lizards, and a plethora of birds which make the forest home.

Some of the most popular hanging bridges are in Arenal and Monteverde, but they are also found in Santa Elena, Tirimbina and some lodges have their own small hanging bridge networks. The tours are not strenuous and most are relatively flat with gentle inclines, some involve a combination of hanging bridges, fixed bridges, pathways and even zip-lines through the verdant forest. Those travelling with children may opt for a trail with ziplines, kids love 'em. Whichever tour you decide to do, we are sure you will enjoy it, there's no better way to spend a few hours in the heart of nature.

Top Tip: wear closed shoes, some operators will not allow you to walk the hanging bridges in flipflops or sandals.
