Half way between the town of Santa Elena and the Santa Elena Preserve the Sky Walk is located: This complex use trails, suspension bridges for a more tranquil introduction to the ecology and natives of the forest canopy, constructed within the cloud forest. It allows a vision of the forest from a different perspective which starts with a walk on the ground taking you up to explore the treetops, a hardly discovered habitat, called the “canopy” with a naturalist guide. Also discover the night wildlife at our Sky Walk Night Tour.

Loved our walk through the cloud forest. The bridges are a little scary, but not bad. We saw snakes and animals in the trees. Our guide was great and the walk very interesting!

It is a beautiful piece of cloud forest. If you have never seen a rain forest canopy and are unlikely to ever see it, then go. For others, $30 for a one hour walk through the rain forest is rather steep. The humming or screeching...More

For anyone who has never seen a tropical rain forest up close, this is a thrilling experience, with bromeliads on every tree, waterfalls, birds, and hanging bridges with great vistas.

A wonderful walk through the rain forest with several "sky" bridges over the forest canopy. This is a beautiful way to see the wonders of nature. We did not do zip lining on this trip. Saving it for our next adventure in beautiful Costa Rica!

very well maintained trail and bridges, it took us however only a tlittle more than an hour to do the entire tour of the 6 bridges, so I find it rather expensive for what you get.

They provide transportation to and from Santa Elena. I thought it was a little pricey for $30 but if you take your time and go back and forth over the 8 bridges, you could spend a good 3-4 hours. The flora views were stunning and...More

By no means is this not a beautiful area. I think to truly experience the walk and the bridges you should go with a guide to point out flor and fauna and creatures. I did this walk solo and just perused the area and took...More

You can certainly do it on your own. That's what I did. You will mostly see pristine cloud forests from the hanging bridges and some exotic birds if you are lucky. There is really not much a guide can add to your experience... More
