Letting you fly high above the treetops, canopy tours are a superb way of seeing all that a forest has to offer. Ideal for the bold and adventurous at heart, these tours let you soar way above the forest floor, as you get a bird’s eye view of all the flora and fauna found below. Amazing places to visit; the forests found in Costa Rica are home to some of the most rare and endangered wildlife on the planet. Via a canopy tour, not only do you get to protect this precious natural resource, but you also get to explore it without disturbing it in any way, shape or form.

Treetop Activity

Providing you with some truly unparalleled views, a canopy tour also gives you a greater chance of bird and wildlife watching, as in most forests the floor tends to be quite dark due to thick trees growing overhead.

Walk in Clouds

In North Puntarenas there are plenty of places worth going to for a canopy tour. For a literal walk in the clouds, take a canopy tour in the cloud forest reserves of Monteverde and Santa Elena. Stunningly beautiful, these reserves also have aerial tram tours as well as a walkway of several suspension bridges, which let you enjoy the forest at a slower pace high up in the clouds.

Free Natural Habitat

Along the Central Pacific Coast of Puntarenas, there are a number of places which offer canopy tours including the Parque Nacional Manuel Antonio, the Rainmaker Aerial Walkway near Quepos and the Hacienda Baru National Wildlife Refuge just south of Matapalo. All these tours are wonderful for the entire family, as they give you the opportunity to watch many birds and animals roam in their natural habitat free from fear.

Where to Go

A number of canopy tour companies can be found in places like Jaco, Quepos, and Manuel Antonio as well as in the towns of Monteverde and Santa Elena. When looking for a canopy tour operator, be sure to pick one that is accredited and provides all the necessary safety gear. Ask for recommendations and always follow the instructions given. Remember to book you canopy tours in advance in place like Manuel Antonio, which tend to get pretty crowded during peak tourist season.
