What To Expect
Step into a butterfly and hummingbird garden to see these colorful pollinators feast on tropical flowers while your guide explains their key lifecycle events and traits. Then pop into the orchid garden, which contains salvaged tropical orchids found on the forest floor, before heading to the terrarium to view reptiles and amphibians.
After your walk, climb aboard an open and secure aerial tram that transports you through two stories of the rainforest for a comprehensive perspective on the environment. Throughout the ride, learn about the biodiverse ecosystem from your guide, who will point out native plant species and animal sightings among the hanging gardens and verdant vegetation. Keep your eyes peeled and your cameras ready for possible appearances by tree sloths, spider monkeys, keel-billed toucans, and other tropical inhabitants.
Back on the forest floor, enjoy a typical Costa Rican lunch like rice, beans, chicken, and plantains (optional upon booking), or just relax in the natural environment. Return to your hotel in San Jose with optional transport upgrade or make your own way back to your lodging.
