I simply loved this walking. It was very peaceful and easy to do (I'm afraid of heights, but in the end, I was so happy to stay on the bridge and see the amazing nature around me). The jungle is amazing.

Everyone said this would be super touristy, but honestly I loved it. It was full of wildlife. Our guide was great (I can't remember his name, Nochi?). We saw many different birds, wild boars, monkeys and a pit viper snake. There are some beautiful waterfalls too. The bridges are scary but awesome.

I founded a little scary to crossing these bridges. If you are afraid of heights (beware). I didn’t think I was but I couldn’t look down. It was raining when I visited, they didn’t seem to make any special announcement but I noticed that some of the trails had signs instructing people to be aware of the “fragile terrain”. Trails need better maintenance in my opinion. Definitely bring a rain poncho in case it rains. I went during rainy season and trust me I used it quite often. Also, be mindful of the type of shoes you bring. Most parks in Costa Rica recommend hiking or tennis shoes. I had read a couple of blogs that recommended closed hiking sandals, don’t. I did bring them and although they dry quick, you want to avoid contact with any form of poisonous plant or animal. During rainy season, your shoes will get wet and muddy so make sure your they’re waterproof or that at least dry up quickly.

You will get a paper map of the park, if it’s raining make sure you take a picture with your phone. I didn’t and ended up with a ball of wet paper in my hand. Luckily I remembered how to get back. Common sense I know...:/

This was an excursion from Princess Cruises. It was a great one! Our guide was very informative and walking through the Costa Rican rain forest was fun! The walk was quite easy and fun. One of my favorites of the cruise. They served us a delicious lunch of chicken, beef or fish with rice and beans! It was excellent!

My boyfriend and I took the hiking trip and had the opportunity to cross a few of the Puentes Colgantes at the Sky property before our canopy (Zip lining adventure)...the hike was magnificent and our guide was fantastic, very knowledgable. I highly recommend you buy the full package to do the hike and the zip lining. So worth it!

Beautiful, wonderful, awesome.
OK we're done here.....
This is a 2-3 kilometer walk amongst a picturesque rainforest. There are 25 steel hanging bridges each with their own setting the highest was over 40 meters high. And the largest span was over 120 feet. This was great exercise and a really beautiful setting. prices are about $35 per couple. Bring rain gear and good heavy soled walking shoes. They do not allow sandals nor open trekking shoes.

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 took the longest walk. The views were amazing and our guide was very knowledgeable. Saw a sloth, hummingbird nest with eggs, lovely trees and vistas. Bridges were very secure and they limit the number at one time. You do need good shoes and the hike was a moderate level

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.
