Costa Rica Tram Tours
Tram rides provide travelers with some of the most unique and unobstructed views of the forest canopy in all of Costa Rica. Open-air gondolas – which generally hold between four and six people – ascend silently and smoothly above the treetops, allowing passengers to peer down into the complex ecosystem below. Naturalist guides are often onboard helping visitors to understand what they’re seeing, which, in a country that hosts over 500,000 different species, is quite a lot! Tram tours are frequently offered in conjunction with other activities, such as hanging bridge and zip-line tours, and can be found in places like Arenal, Monteverde, Jacó, Limón, and Guapiles.
The Sky Trek Canopy Tour in Monteverde is located 3.7 miles from the town of Santa Elena and about 1.8 miles from the Santa Elena Cloud Forest Reserve. Flying across the misty cloud forest of Monteverde is one of Costa Rica's signature experiences.
The Full Day Tour to Veragua Rainforest includes a Rainforest Tram, Trail of the Giants, Puma Waterfall trail, and a visit to the INBio research station. Visitors to Veragua will have the opportunity to learn from naturalist guides about the rainforest's biodiversity.
This tour is a thorough exploration of the Arenal rainforest canopy. You’ll go for a walk over suspension bridges that offer peerless views of the jungle, and then go for a ride above the canopy in a cable car. Visitors should know that the hike is fairly strenuous, and involves steep ascents and descents, as well as climbing steps.
Try some of the most exciting adventures that Jacó has to offer on this adrenaline-pumping tour. This tour keeps your entertained with fun-filled activities in one of Costa Rica’s most vibrant rainforests. Along the way, your naturalist guide will point out native animals and birds.
Get above Monteverde’s cloud forest to see the busiest part of this environment – the canopy. 90 percent of the plants and animals in the Monteverde cloud forest live in the canopy. When you’re at this elevation, you can come face-to-face with the monkeys and birds. This tour has two distinct sections – your tour will include a walk over trails and suspension bridges, as well as a ride in a cable car.
A visit to the Rain Forest Aerial Tram along Costa Rica's Caribbean coast ensures an experience filled with natural beauty, animal spotting, and educational opportunities. Located 50 minutes from San Jose, this 475-hectare private reserve shares a border with the Baulio Carrillo National Park and protects huge numbers of plant and animal species.
Combining two of the country’s most adrenalin-packed activities, this tour will have you rappelling down waterfalls and surging over white-water rapids! Set in Costa Rica’s Northern Lowlands near the base of the Arenal Volcano, the scenery for this tour couldn’t be any more beautiful.
Sleep in before being transported to the La Paz Waterfall Gardens for an all-day tour at one of the best eco parks in Costa Rica. The excursion is designed to start later than most tours so you are rested when you experience what the Waterfall Gardens boasts as the essence of Costa Rica on a guided hike through the reserve.
