Our naturalist guide will pick you up at your hotel early in the morning to start your journey of 1 1/2 hours to Puerto Viejo de Sarapiquí passing through one of the most lush areas in Costa Rica, Braulio Carrillo National Park. You will be able to enjoy the scenic views as we travel.
Once in Puerto Viejo de Sarapiquí, you will board a boat to discover the richness of Costa Rica nature along the Sarapiqui River. The boat ride will last approximately two hours, where you will have the opportunity to enjoy the magnificent rain forest and it habitants, such as toucans, monkeys, sloths, crocodiles and many other species.
Then you will arrive at a private reserve where you will have the choice of reaching the Canopy starting point by horseback or hiking. The Canopy starts with an explanation of the basic principals needed to make this experience an enjoyable and safe one. This is the adventure that lets you roam around the treetops leaping from platform to platform, in a special system of steel cables using professional climbing gear.
Each one of the 15 platforms and the suspension bridge is a unique experience in itself. After such an adrenaline packed two hours, you will be able to enjoy a home-style lunch at the private reserve. This excursion requires no previous experience.
