RAIN FOREST AREAL TRAM
The first Rain Forest Aerial Tram (1) ever built takes you over an expansive private nature preserve on Costa Rica's Atlantic Coast. You do not have to "race" at risk or "coast" along cables or have to "fasten" mountain-climbing gear to safely explore the rainforest canopy. On board of our specially designed gondolas, you are comfortably and safely seated. With our expert naturalist guides, you will silently glide through the colorful and complex beauty of the rainforest canopy.
The rainforest canopy is one of the least seen and most complex communities on the planet. In their eagerness to find light and open space, many plants have colonized the treetops, turning them into highly complex living ecosystems. Colorful flowers and an amazing array of shades of green have created a unique, symbiotic relationship with each other in order to capture precious sunlight. This beautiful world cannot be seen from the forest floor. You can still experience the canopy, however. The Rain Forest Aerial Tram today offers the most spectacular way of visiting this rare world.
You will enjoy the most complete rainforest experience possible, as you will literally fly through the forest, viewing the sub canopy (middle part of the forest), the upper canopy and its hanging gardens. You will discover plants and life forms that are usually hidden from the human eye in the forest treetops, opening up a little-seen world of intense beauty and an extraordinary biological diversity. Complimenting the gondola experience, you will be taken on a nature walk and enjoy an informational video, all while accompanied by a bilingual, expert naturalist guide.
The Atlantic Rain Forest Aerial Tram is also home to the Rain Forest Lodge, which provides you with an opportunity to discover all the wonders of our attractions in a full-time all-inclusive way.
The tour begins with a short multimedia presentation about the creation of the Rain Forest Aerial Tram. From then on, you will be able to enjoy the following attraction (please click on each attraction title to learn more about it).
