Sky Walk
Anybody that can walk for 2 hours can enjoy this experience. There are no strenuous climbs or mud and the trails are very well maintained. It takes an average of 2 hours, much more if you want to take time to pay close attention to all the different plants, trees and wildlife along the way.

The Sky Walk tour includes 2.5 kilometers of trails and 5 suspended bridges across deep canyons at the level of the treetops. The longest bridge is about 243 meters (800 feet) in length.

The temperature can be cool in these mountains so wear pants, good walking shoes and bring a light jacket or sweater.

Insect repellent is not necessary but suntan protection lotion is. Binoculars and poncho or umbrella are recommended. After all, this is a Cloud Forest.

At the entrance, you can find a restaurant & souvenir shop. There is also a hummingbird garden where you can watch dozens of these amazing creatures flit around.

Because there is a 12 person maximum capacity per bridge, larger groups will need to stagger their start times.
