Suspension Bridges and Butterfly Garden PhotoSuspension Bridges and Butterfly Garden Photo

The Tree Top walkway is the ideal cloud forest experience for those who wish to explore the beauty of the canopy at their own pace. The Butterfly garden of Selvatura is one of the largest in the Americas, a real treat for nature lovers.

Treetop Suspension Bridges

The walkway consists of 8 suspension bridges connected by trails covering 1.9 miles (3km). The bridges vary from 150ft (50m) to 500ft (170m) in length and are suspended at heights ranging from 36ft (12m) to 180ft (60m). At almost 5ft (1.5m) wide, the bridge system is the widest and sturdiest in Costa Rica.

Visitors have the option of taking a self-guided treetop tour, or of joining a guided Natural History Tour (paying an extra fee). All guides are bilingual and professionally trained. Visitors will learn about the mammals, birds and plant life - particularly bromeliads, epiphytes and ferns - living in this unique eco-system, as well as hearing some of the fascinating cultural history of the region.

The hanging bridges can be enjoyed by visitors of all ages and physical conditions. Tours last up to 2.5 hours. Again, it is recommended that visitors bring long pants, suitable shoes and waterproof jackets.

Butterfly Garden

Selvatura's stunning butterfly garden is one of the largest on the continent. At 300ft long and 90ft wide, with a huge 50ft dome ceiling, the giant garden is host to 50 species of butterflies. Accurate and sensitive temperature controlling enables the survival of species from a range of altitudes and climate conditions throughout Costa Rica. Take a guided tour through this fascinating live exhibit and learn about the life cycle, special behaviors and evolution of these unique creatures.

Visitors are advised to wear long pants, closed-toed shoes and to bring rain gear just in case. The tour lasts between 4.5 and 5 hours, but can be either shorter or longer, depending on your pace.

What to Bring

Comfortable clothing, camera, insect repellent, hiking shoes and rain gear.

What's included

Professional guides( only for butterfly garden), entrance fees and round trip transportation from the local hotels in Monteverde.
