Tour Itinerary

Your rainforest adventure begins with pick-up from your hotel and a relaxing private drive through the wonderful Costa Rican countryside in an air-conditioned recent model deluxe vehicle. You will be heading to the Caribbean Slope, crossing the beautiful Braulio Carrillo National Park until you arrive at a private property in Guapiles Region about 75 minutes from San Jose. Upon arrival, you will have some free time for using restrooms and exploring the surroundings before boarding your gondola for a rainforest exploration.

Open-sided vehicles shuttle passengers from the parking area to the Visitors Center. The shuttle trip provides an introduction to the forest as you pass a small river and numerous tree snags with nesting holes of various birds. The White Hawk is regularly seen here, as well as the Pale-billed Woodpecker and many others.

After a quick briefing on canopy exploration and the construction of the tram, visitors divide into smaller groups for an optional 45 to 90-minute nature walk with a trained naturalist guide. The trails are well-groomed and provide an excellent introduction to the rainforest.

Then it's time to board the Aerial Tram. The open-sided cable-cars hold 5 passengers and a guide. The guides are quite knowledgeable about flora and fauna. They'll point out orchids and different species of trees, and are quick to identify the calls of the many birds that inhabit this unique environment. The tram ride lasts about an hour and fifteen minutes. The lower, outbound leg of the tram journey takes you skimming over hilltops and in and out of the sub-canopy, a dark world of overburdened tree limbs dripping with mosses, ferns and orchids. Lianas and vines drape over branches and traverse forest spaces, and act as highways for birds and insects. The ride will stop several times as passengers board at other loading stations.

The return leg of the ride reveals the most dramatic portion of the trip as the cars glide on a breathtaking journey through and above the airy canopy. After the ride, a Costa Rican lunch will be waiting for you, before you depart on the return to your San Jose hotel.

The Costa Rica tram tour is the beat way to explore the rainforest. Don´t miss it!
