When I saw there was tree climbing in the Costa Rican cloud forest area, I had to check it out! Climbing a 40 meter (120 ft) ficus tree was an incredible experience. It was a lot like rock climbing...with a twist. The views at the top are great. I did the combo tour and went to 6 waterfalls next for rappelling. This was not like the rappelling I’ve done in the past in Costa Rica. They even had us put knee and elbow pads and I soon learned why! This is for adventurous travelers for sure!! I LOVED the experience. The views were incredible and the tallest waterfall (again 40 meters) was absolutely breathtaking and amazing in every way. It’s a huge adrenaline rush!!

What I loved as well was the fact that this place is run by a family who has been doing this for a very long time, all together making it possible together. They provided excellent customer cafe, speak perfect English if you require that, and they are very careful about safety. They also take stellar pics for you to take home. I thought it was the best deal I’ve ever gotten on an all day excursion!!

Loved every minute of it!

This was one of the highlights of our time in Monteverde. We didn't expect there to be a climb up the tree to experience sunset atop the city (which was a very exciting experience) and tenth night tour just was amazing. The guide was able to answer our most scientific questions, while still giving fun facts throughout the tour.
Highly recommend.

We took tree climbing and rappelling and all I can say is that both of them were extremely fun and exciting.
Yuhnier and his father are great host and guides. They give a family and friendly touch.
You wont regret to take their service.
For sure we will be back.
Seriously: DONT MISS IT.

This is a very well run family operation. We were picked up at our hotel in Santa elena and driven 10 mins out of town to a beautiful farm estate. After some quick instructions we were off for the tree climb.

The pandemic has hit the tourism industry hard like everywhere else. The two us were the only ones but that didn't diminish the enthusiasm of our guides the slightest bit.

The tree climb is exhilarating and you neehisd to be in reasonable shape to get to the top. We were absolutely thrilled to get to the topmost platform where we saw the last vestiges of a beautiful orange purple sunset over the forest. The wind was hard so we climbed up from the inside and back down from the inside as well though I believe on calmer says you can rappel from the outside. We were properly harnessed with safety cords and felt safe at all times despite the crazy height we had just ascended (132 ft)

After the climb we were off for the night walk which was outstanding. Junior, our guide, is the son of the proprietor but this is not some random casual walk. He was carrying a professional scope, lots of wildlife books for reference and was extremely knowledgeable. For two hours non stop he was explaining in great detail about the forest, the trees and plants and the insect and animal life. We saw a lot of critters but every night is bound to be different. What stood out was his enthusiasm and affection for his natural surroundings.

After all this we were driven to a restaurant for hot pizza and drinks. Can't recommend this experience enough, particularly if you get to go out with junior.
