In our last blog post, we looked in depth at the Sky Walk attraction in the Monteverde Biological Reserve. This location also offers other adventure options, namely the Sky Tram and the Sky Trek. These are among the best day trips from San Jose Costa Rica and a must to add to your vacation itinerary.
As mentioned in our last blog, Monteverde is a small community north of San Jose, about three hours’ driving time from the city. It is the location of the Monteverde Cloud Forest Biological Reserve, which is officially one of Costa Rica’s “Seven Natural Wonders”.
Experience this beautiful and diverse forest attraction and choose between the aforementioned Sky Walk, or the Sky Tram or Sky Trek and immerse yourself in nature and the unique Costa Rican ecosystem.
Sky Adventures Monteverde Park is a tourist attraction that opened for the first time in 1997 as a place to experience the diversity and richness of Costa Rica’s natural cloud forest.
Sky Trek is a safe, certified, and exhilarating zip line adventure, with zip lines whizzing you between mountains, over canyons, and above the trees. An adrenaline rush like no other, you commence the tour in an open-air gondola from ground level to the observation area at the highest point of the mountain. From here you can enjoy views of the forest as well as the Gulf of Nicoya and Arenal Volcano in the distance. The zip line circuit features seven cables, the longest being 2640ft (750m) and your ride will take you to speeds of more than 43 miles (70km) per hour!
Sky Tram is a more relaxed, sedate way to enjoy the magnificent views and atmosphere of the forest. An open gondola, it offers a smooth 2625ft (800m) ride through the Cloud Forest to the observation platform at the top of the mountain. There is a bilingual guide who’ll point out flora and fauna and provide interesting facts about the area. This is an accessible tour that everyone can enjoy. The views from the top are magnificent!
Park facilities include a restaurant, Sky Trek photos, Go Pro rental, gift shop, Wi-Fi, and more.
