Monteverde: Zip Line, Bridges, and Butterfly Garden Tour

1. Monteverde: Zip Line, Bridges, and Butterfly Garden Tour

Treat yourself to a day of fun in Monteverde Park. Zip through the Monteverde Cloud Forest tree canopy, take a self-guided walk on suspension bridges, and wander around extensive butterfly gardens with a guide. Experience the Monteverde Cloud Forest by zip line. Then head to the tree-top walkway, the ideal experience for those who want to explore the beauty of the canopy at their own pace and appreciate the region's incredible array of vegetation and exotic bird life. Explore the walkway made up of 8 suspension bridges linked by 1.9 miles of trails, the widest and strongest bridge system in Costa Rica. The bridges range in length from 150 feet to 500 feet and are suspended at heights ranging from 36 feet to 180 feet. Next, discover a giant butterfly garden that is 300 feet long and 90 feet wide, one of the largest on the continent. See the massive 50-foot dome ceiling and get up close to 50 species of butterflies. Take a guided tour of a live exhibit to learn about the life cycle, special behaviors, and evolution of these butterflies. Learn how precise and sensitive temperature control allows species to survive across a wide range of altitudes and climate conditions in Costa Rica.

A perfect combination of programs to do in Monteverde! You will start with the zipline, which is just terrific, we loved it so much! Even if it might seem a little frightening at the beginning, right after the first zipline you will forget about your fear and just enjoy the ride. The guides are also superb at making you feel at ease. Don't miss the Tarzan swing at the end, it's super cool! After the zipline you will have the chance to have lunch at a restaurant there if you want, there was great variety and all was delicious. You can choose to do the hanging bridges or the butterfly garden after, it depends on your preference and your pace. For the butterfly garden there are tours each hour at a given time (you will be briefed), while you will do the hanging bridges on your own, so it's up to you to choose the order. This is a very authentic experience all in all, I absolutely recommend it!

This was like a self guided tour...which was confusing at first but then I liked it. You get picked up and dropped off at the main entrance. Get checked in and then you do your activities at your pace. Loved the zipline! A must do activity! Bridges and butterfly garden was okay.

It was a great 3 in 1 option. Really liked the ziplining, was scary at first but so exhilarating. The suspension bridges were great to just admire the rainforest. The butterfly gatden tour was great; i learnt so many facts that i didnt know beforehand! 🦋

The zipline tour is awesome 👍 & Tarzan swing is amazing! The hanging bridges are great and make the tour through the rainforest an experience. We found the butterfly garden quite okay, we had imagined more of it.

The zip lines the best of the best. An incredible experience. The very cool tarzan jump! The beautiful bridges and the butterfly garden we expected a little more, but it is interesting
