The Aerial Tram, which covers 2.6 km and takes about an hour and twenty minutes to complete, glides you smoothly through the lush treetops of the rainforest. A wonderful opportunity to experience this primary forest first hand, these open-air gondolas can seat up to six people and include a naturalist guide. Your guide will help inform you about the various ecosystems existing within the rainforest - from the forest floor to the top of the trees - and will help to spot critters swinging, hanging, or flying through the trees.
Getting its name from Costa Rica's third president, Dr. Braulio Carrillo, the national park, full of tropical rainforest, spans northeast of the Central Valley. Flowing down from the Central Volcanic Corridor, Braulio Carrillo National Park (Parque Nacional Braulio Carrillo) falls between the Poas Volcano to the west and the Irazu Volcano to the east. The protected zone encompasses 108,970 acres (44,100 ha) of rolling hills crammed with dark-green vegetation that teems with wildlife.
