Owner description: Selvatura Park is one of the best nature and adventure parks in Costa Rica with a wide variety of activities including: Canopy Tour, Treetop Walkways, Butterfly Garden, Insect Exhibition, Hummingbird Garden, Reptile and Amphibian Exhibition and an excellent restaurant where you can combine activities and have the absolute best experience in the Cloud Forests of Monteverde.

We did the canopy tour and the hanging bridges. The canopy tour was with a group of about 20 and 5 or 6 guides, the hanging bridges were done on our own. Selvatura provides lockers so that you can store your stuff for the day (a big plus, and something we were wondering about). The tour boasts some incredibly long runs and you really are up above the canopy in Santa Elena, a truly unique perspective. The guides were very knowledgable and made sure that everyone felt safe and understood how to use the equipment.

The hanging bridge tour was great, much quieter than I anticipated. This allowed for one of the most magical moments of our whole trip to Costa Rica to happen, and that was a sighting of a group of howler monkeys with babies, jumping from tree to tree. It was truly spectacular to see that kind of wildlife in their natural habitat.

The zip lines were amazing! Most of the guides were fantastic and all of them were great with my two kids. The only down side is that they kept messing with my husband who is over weight...kept telling him to lay off the beer:-(.
The butterfly garden was gorgeous. We were able to take our time and linger after our guide took us through. All in all it was great.

Beautiful views from bridges. Look to the left on bridge 4 or 5 (longest one) for monkeys in the distance

Incredible Experience! This was the most intense zip lining I've experienced and with the most amazing views. I may never zip line again, as I don't think anything would compare. The equipment is safe and the staff is professional. I believe zip lining is the best way to see the Cloud Forest and Selvatura Park is a great place to do it at. After zip lining, we walked the hanging bridges which is another excellent way to take in the sights and get a few photos while doing so.
