My boyfriend and I took the hiking trip and had the opportunity to cross a few of the Puentes Colgantes at the Sky property before our canopy (Zip lining adventure)...the hike was magnificent and our guide was fantastic, very knowledgable. I highly recommend you buy the full package to do the hike and the zip lining. So worth it!

A very unusual experience walking ABOVE the forest rather than through it. Beautiful scenery, and very cool bridges which vibrate as you walk across them. Local guided are very knowledgeable about the flora and fauna of the region.

We took the longest walk. The views were amazing and our guide was very knowledgeable. Saw a sloth, hummingbird nest with eggs, lovely trees and vistas. Bridges were very secure and they limit the number at one time. You do need good shoes and the hike was a moderate level

We went with a guide and hiked for about 1 1/2 hours crosing 6 suspension bridges and seeing monkeys, canyons, poisonous snakes, a waterfall,etc. The trail was paved in a way that helped to keep you from slipping if it is a little wet.

The Hanging Bridges ("Puentes Colgantes") represent a "can't miss" attraction in the Arenal area. There is so much to see and so many subtle features of the ecology of this rain forest, that it is a must to book your visit as a professionally-guided tour. We booked our tour through Desafio Adventures and had an amazing experience. The tour consists... More

These suspension bridges were high up in the trees, with waterfalls below. Wear good shoes and poncho so that a light rain does not deter your visit. Peaceful.

Loved it. Not good for elderly people who are unsteady. Some paths were a little difficult to walk especially in the rainy season.
