What To Do in Monteverde – Ziplining and Hanging Bridges in the Cloud Forest of Monteverde

Without a doubt the number one activity(ies) in all of Monteverde is ziplining and hanging bridges in the cloud forest! Very little compares to this adventure and is a must do.

In my opinion only Sky Adventure Skytrek really delivers the best of them all!

This is how my adventure Ziplining and on Hanging Bridges form Monteverde went:

Just be ready for the cloud forest – it’s always a bit rainy. And if you’re not, no biggy, since Skytrek has plenty of rain coats.

The guide was really awesome, knew his stuff and seemed to enjoy the tour (which he has been giving for over 9 years) as much as us.

The cloud forest is alive with flora due to the constant drizzle.

Another thing Skytrek is famous for, is for having the longest hanging bridges! One of the bridges is literally almost one mile long.

Next came the Ziplining!

To get to the area where the platforms are, you need to take the other famous attraction – the Skytram.

The views from here go all the way to the Pacific ocean and are mind blowing.

The canopy tour operators really know what they are talking about, they are also great fun!

What a tour!!!

Even though this is a great way to spend a morning or afternoon with the family, I definitely don’t recommend coming with young kids. 8 and older, and I felt that even 8 was a bit young, especially for the ziplining. It’s a tour your family will forever love!
