Tour begins with an amazing drive through the rainforest out to the canopy site. During the ride there are many stops for everyone to learn about the flora and fauna of the area. The local bilingual guides have a vast knowledge of the area and love to share the many secrets that the rainforest holds with the clients. The canopy site is located approximately forty-five minutes from Manuel Antonio, in an area called Paso Real. Here you have a brand new ranch house with full facilities, located next to a pristine river, this is where we serve a full breakfast or lunch (depending on tour time). A spectacular river is the backdrop for these platforms carefully built in the canopy of the rainforest. Clients are able to traverse from tree to tree and platform to platform using pulleys on horizontal traverse cables, as they sail through the treetops of the tropical rainforest canopy, and over the trails far below.
The canopy course consists of 18 platforms, 10 ?zip lines, and 2 rappel lines, one suspension bridge, " Tarzan wing", butterfly farm and serpentarium. It is the only canopy tour in Costa Rica with a Tarzan swing, which adds much more excitement for the clients. Our expert guides assist the clients in this exciting journey through the different layers of virgin and secondary rainforest. They point out and explain the many different types of flora and fauna; from poison dart frogs, to the ?walking palm tree?. As a result; at the end of the tour clients are able to walk away with a newfound knowledge of Costa Rican wildlife.
