Costa Rica is home to one of the most studied, and most active volcanoes in the world. Its consistent rumble and bubbling makes for an exciting visit, and calls to the adventurous heart in every traveler. This extension includes a rainforest tram and canopy tour, allowing you to explore the best of what the area has to offer. Explore the wonders and beauty of this region.
Today you enjoy a leisurely morning. Included today is a tour on a rainforest aerial tram! You will be picked up and transferred to the Sky Tram gondolas. Enjoy a slow ride up the mountainside, enjoying amazing views on the way, as well as keeping your eyes out for wildlife. You are accompanied by a bilingual guide who will point out flora and fauna in the ecosystem. At the top, enjoy magnificent views of volcanoes and Lake Arenal from the observation deck. You can spend some time exploring the top area before descending down to the base. One option is to ride back down the tram, but the more exciting option we will try is the zipline canopy tour. Enjoy a thrilling ride as you zip on cables running across two mountains all the way to the bottom!

When to Go
Good to ideal period to travel, and many people choose to visit at this time.
Chance for unpredictable weather but with fewer visitors.
Our guide and driver were very good with their knowledge and were very helpful with our questions. It was a very pleasant visit that would have been impossible to do on our own. Hotels and restaurants were fantastic. The special places we got to go to, like the kitchens, were great. Enjoyed the entire trip!
