    "So, I already visited Sky Tram in the Monteverde region, it was fantastic with the clouds and all the landscapes and wildlife. So I decided to try the Arenal location. Even better. So many options with that magnificent giant looking at you all the time. Arenal is by far my favorite. Next time I will take all my family. "

    "This was an awesome adventure! Our family of five all considered this to be the highlight of our trip. Although my husband and daughter are afraid of heights, the staff made them feel safe and secure, and they absolutely loved it. The staff was so friendly, so knowledgable and really wanted our group to have a great time. We all LOVED it! I would highly recommend this, and we will definitely be back."
