Rainforest Adventures Aerial Tram Tour Braulio Carrillo

    What to Expect
    Make your own way to Braulio Carrillo National Park or opt for an upgrade to include roundtrip transportation from your hotel in San Jose. Upon arriving at the park, wander down paved trails on a short guided nature walk, pausing to learn about the flora and fauna that characterize the region.

    Step into a butterfly and hummingbird garden to see these colorful pollinators feast on tropical flowers while your guide explains their key lifecycle events and traits. Then pop into the orchid garden, which contains salvaged tropical orchids found on the forest floor, before heading to the terrarium to view reptiles and amphibians.

    After your walk, climb aboard an open and secure aerial tram that transports you through two stories of the rainforest for a comprehensive perspective on the environment. Throughout the ride, learn about the biodiverse ecosystem from your guide, who will point out native plant species and animal sightings among the hanging gardens and verdant vegetation. Keep your eyes peeled and your cameras ready for possible appearances by tree sloths, spider monkeys, keel-billed toucans, and other tropical inhabitants.

    Back on the forest floor, enjoy a typical Costa Rican lunch like rice, beans, chicken, and plantains (optional upon booking), or just relax in the natural environment. Return to your hotel in San Jose with optional transport upgrade or make your own way back to your lodging.

    Please note: A minimum of two passengers per booking is required.

    We have visited Costa Rica several times and taken many times. Having visited other rainforests, this one was very uneventful. Our teenage sons almost fell asleep on the aerial tram. There weren’t any animals except for a few caged snakes and frogs and a butterfly screened area.

    Even though it rains in the rain forest, I absolutely loved it! There is a roof on the canopy and I only got wet from the knees down. This is a great experience and opportunity to take a guided tour introducing you to the local flora and possibly fauna. Don't forget the
