Safe, friendly guides; great w/my children (10/13) We've zip lines in Costa Rica and Belize; this place rocks and by far offered the best experience! 13 lines, all in canopy; one over 3,000 feet! Tarzan included and our family, 10 years-48 found it thrilling. Hanging bridges was cool hike. Nice restaurant on property w/good food. Free transportation to/from was convenient... More

My husband and me took the ziplining and hanging bridges tour at the Selvature park recently. I cannot recommend it enough. There are a total of 13 ziplines on the tour with 2 of them being 1 km long. The views are stunning, the staff is experienced and I always felt safe. We had a great time and it is... More

We did the hanging bridges at Selvatura in December 2015. I think the experience would have been uneventful had we not hired a good tour guide. We went with the company Forest Alive (based on positive reviews on TripAdvisor) and our tour guide was Victorino. Because we had gone a bit later in the day, there wasn't much wildlife to... More

We did the hanging bridges trail, and it was pretty but nothing spectacular. Fairly easy hike and 8 bridges. The main reason I gave it 3 out if 5 was because it was way over-priced for a stroll through the rainforest. $30 per person wasn't worth it, in my opinion. Oh and those of you with a fear of heights,... More

We went on the bridge tour, and our guide Mauricio was excellent and very knowledgeable. He mentioned the possibility of seeing a quetzal, but I did not get my hopes up because I had heard that before with no result. Sure enough, we spotted a male quetzal on a tree near one of the bridges. We also saw howler monkeys... More

Ziplining was great but the tarzan swing is haphazard & somewhat dangerous. My wife had to have 2 attempts. I hit the platform on the way down, still have the bruises. They didnt seem too suprised.

Not sure why I have a mixed feeling about this place. Maybe because when you book the visit it seems that you are about to go for a guided tour in a national park, but when you get here it turns out to be a privately owned operation. Msybe because you are paying $30 to walk in what feels to... More

Some fantastic and really long rides!!! The guide was great with my 6 and 7 year old. I couldn't believe how long some of the rides were. The last one you can ride superman style!
