It shares a 10km border with Braulio Carrillo National Park and constitutes a buffer zone between the park and farming lands. It takes an hour and 20 minutes, during which you’ll glide pleasantly through the treetops. This is an extraordinary opportunity to see a primary forest and its natural splendor first hand. The open-air gondolas with canvas awnings seat 6 passengers and a naturalist guide.
We show our guests all the different layers of the rainforest, from the floor to the treetops. The canopy is home to an enormous amount of flora and fauna. Eager to find light and space, many plants have colonized the treetops, turning them into small, independently functioning ecosystems. Colorful tropical flowers, fascinating plants and trees are quite common, and you will learn how they work together to form a complete ecosystem.
The Aerial Tram tour covers a distance of 2.6 kilometers through primary rainforest. The ride lasts about an hour and twenty minutes and travels at the leisurely pace of two kilometers per hour, allowing you the chance to fully explore this exciting part of the forest.
