What you'll do

This activity consists on visiting the wonderful rain forest, located on a protected private reserve of 600 acres. You will walk on a very nice three kilometers long trail, through which you will pass 15 bridges, 6 of them are hanging bridges, designed at different heights (130 feet the highest one) and with different lengths (318 feet the longest one) to see the forest from a very different angle. The opportunity of seeing the treetops is amazing and the view of the Arenal Volcano from the first hanging bridge is just espectacular. Besides the nice views that you will enjoy during the walk, you will have the chance to see as well many wildlife such as birds: Toucans, Hawks, the Rufous Motmot, Broad-billed Motmot, Rufous-tailed Jacamar; frogs: the tiny and poisonous Strawberry Dart Frog, known as Blue-jeans Frog; bats, snakes, three species of monkeys: Howler, Spider and White-face monkey; sloths, peccaries, coatimundis and much more. After this amazing walk, you will love the forest more than you did it before.
Other things to note:
It is important to know that the entrance fee to the park is not included in the price. The client must pay for it right at the reception of the park. (USD$26p/p)

Gustavo (Tavo) es un excelente guía. Gracias a él y a su experiencia pudimos observar muchos animales e insectos que probablemente solos jamás hubiéramos visto. Excelente trato, conocimiento, buen humor y disposición. 100% recomendado y sin duda en otra ocasión lo volveremos a contactar.

Tava gave my wife and I an outstanding tour of the Mistico Hanging Bridges park. Without his guidance there is much we would never had been aware of. Tavo has and amazing amount of knowledge of the park flora and fauna and of that area of Costa Rice. An amazing experience.

Tavo was a great guide! He was very knowledgeable and we left amazed by what we saw in Mistico Arenal Hanging Bridges Park. He can take spectacular photos with your phone and brings his own telescope and a fancy camera then shares the photos with you. We have great photos of the memories. Tavo was particularly kind, friendly, and accommodating. Thanks for everything, Tavo!

Our private tour with Tavo through Mistico Arenal Hanging Bridges was truly a wonderful experience. While he's new to Airbnb experiences, he has more than seven years of experience as a guide in the tourism industry, and it shows. He's was genuinely friendly and knowledgeable about the park, the animals and Costa Rica. He used his scope to give us up-close views of the birds and animals we saw, helped us use the scope to take photos with our phones, took photos of us with our phones and even shot his own photos, which he shared with us. As we looked at each animal, he gave us detailed information about it. We would have missed so much if we'd tried to visit the park on our own. The tour was more than two hours long and never felt rushed. Afterward, he provided us with fresh fruit and water, and answered any questions we had all while looking at the beautiful Arenal volcano.
