Arenal, Monteverde, and the Northern Lowlands Sights

Arenal Hanging Bridges

  • Bridge/Tunnel

Updated 04/14/2014

Fodor's Review

A series of trails and bridges form a loop through the primary rain forest of a 250-acre private reserve, providing great bird-watching and volcano viewing. Fixed and hanging bridges allow you to see the forest at different levels. Trails are open rain or shine, and there are things to do in both types of weather. Shuttle service from La Fortuna and area lodgings can be arranged.
