I have only ever passed through this park on the way to do whitewater rafting with Ríos Tropicales on El Pacuare, but it is breathtaking each and every time.

We visited the Braulio Carrillo park on our Aerial Tram tour; the view going up the mountain was simply incredible, not to be missed.

It is a well maintained and clean park where one can just walk about or just sit, relax, and chill out.

Hello Gordon. Do you know the price of the aerial tram ride? We were hoping to drive up and sightsee without a group.

Did you go to the park with a tour group? We were hoping to just drive to the park and pay to take the aerial tram. Do they allow that and what's the price? we don't want to take bus tours. Any suggestions are appreciated.
