But go with a guide or you will miss most of the animals . It is a beautiful walk, they even have a shorter version that is wheelchair accessible.

I give the park itself 4/5 stars simply because the way that the park has been built up is a little hokey and not as natural as I think it could be. With that being said, my husband and I did a night tour of...More

This place is awesome! The food here was so good and the park itself has so much to do. I think it’s amazing a family is keeping this place reserved and beautiful as it should be.

I was quite disappointed with the hanging bridges. Pros: yes the bridges were suspended, there were views of the volcano and jungle canopy Cons: rare to see wild animals, costs $26/person or with a guide for $40/person, 30-40 minute drive from La Fortuna. There is...More

Definitely pay more for a guided hike so you can see wildlife and birds. People without a guide were walking right by things that you can only see with binoculars or a scope and obviously you need to know where to look first. The guide...More

We booked a tour with a local company and had a guide walk with us. I highly recommend having a guide because they will know where to look for certain animals and reptiles. The tour itself is not strenuous and is a very easy walk....More

Amazing to see such dense rainforests and the very smartly designed hanging bridges to bring the best out of this place! Apart from excellent flora and fauna, there are lovely birds and also some small animals. Overall a fantastic experience!

The scenery is absolutely beautiful, and we got to watch tons of ants carry their leaves around with them. And we even stumbled upon some coatimundis being really loud eating and knocking things out of the trees.

Hi, We went on our own. Aside from the drive we were able to get on a last minute tour when we arrived. I'd suggest you make a reservation with the park and use one of their official tourguides. Enjoy! Ellen
