Arenal Canopy Tour Description
The Arenal Canopy Tour
is located in “Finca La Orquídea” at La
The adventure begins when you arrive to the stables and the
guides give you an idea of your tour, then you get part of
the equipment and your horseback ride for approximately 40
When we arrive at our destination, we give you the rest of
the equipment necessary then we continue with a short walk
through the transitional forest where a guide points out things
that prevail in the rain forest. Some times it is possible
to see several species of animals, such as white faced and
howler monkeys, rodents, snakes and a great diversity of birds.
As well as an enormous variety of orchids and canopy plant
life. The trees we use are adults that tower above, the plataforms
are at an elevation of 150 feet (46 mts).
All the plataforms are designed for
observation of life rather than damage of it. Trees like cocora
(bilia hippocastanum), monkey comb (apeiba membranacea) and
capulin (mortoniodendrum apetala) just to name a few. After
the hike, we arrive at the first plataform where the ride
begins. You can´t help but be overwhelmed by the beauty
as you glide through the forest on the seven cables. Our shortest
cable is 195 ft (60 mts) and our longest is 650 ft (203 mts)
All the equipment we use is safe and simple for using, and
will be handled by the guides, so you sit back and enjoy the
day. The construction (rigging) of the tour meets the safety
regulations specified by the ACCT (Association for Challenge
Course Technology), considering our tour one of the safest
in Costa Rica.
