Monteverde is the capital of the canopy tours in Costa Rica, and was the first place where this activity became a tourist attraction. This is a new and exiting way to explore the forest's last frontier: its canopy, where the abundance of life forms and interactions reaches its climax.
There are at least 6 different canopy tours in the area, featuring the new Tarzan swings, rappels, hanging bridges, look out points and more. Some tours offer the longest cables in the area; others use towers that rise above the canopy for greater views and lengths, the sky tram brings you to the top of the continental divide, from where the cable lines start. Some provide transportation; some offer other attractions at their facilities and all of them cater for safety and fun.
