Costa Rica: The Sky Walk
The Sky Walk is a well-thought-out combination of suspension bridges and walking trails through the Monteverde rainforest.
These bridges span canyons and drainages, and bring visitors face to face with the upper level of the forest canopy.
There are five bridges in total, the longest of which spans some 984 ft (300 m). The trails extend for slightly over a mile and a half (2.5 km), making this tour extremely feasible for anyone in moderate shape.
The climb is not strenuous or muddy, as the trails are well-maintained and generally very flat.
Local guides accompany each tour and help visitors learn about native plant and animal species.
Because there is a 12 person maximum capacity per bridge, reservations are recommended, especially in July and August and from December till May.
