Rain Forest Aerial Tram From San Jose

    What to Expect
    If you select the tour with transportation option, meet your driver midmorning with pickup at your San Jose hotel, and travel roughly 50 minutes east of the capital to reach the rain forest adventure and ecotourism park. If you have your own transportation, make your way to the park at the designated time.

    Take a seat on board a gondola car, and glide 1.6 miles (2.6 km) along suspended cables that stretch through various levels of the rain forest. The quiet, slow pace of the aerial tram allows you to appreciate the sights and sounds of this amazing ecosystem without disturbing it. Listen to the call of birds, monkeys, and insects, and keep a camera handy to snap photos of the verdant grove forest, hanging gardens, and canopy.

    At the end of the 90-minute tour, return to the forest floor. If you opted for the lunch inclusion, enjoy a meal of typical Costa Rican cuisine. Otherwise, return to San Jose either on your own or with a driver, depending on tour option selected.

    The Tram through the rain forest was amazing. You travel through multiple levels of the forest. The guide in the tram seems to know every detail of the plants, trees and wildlife. There was not a single question Chris could not answer. At the base of the tram is a butterfly

    This is a beautiful experience. The gondola ride is so peaceful and serene that you could fall asleep. Like parasailing in the tree tops. But Ernesto made it even more special by expounding on so many facts and interesting pieces of information during the walk. We saw a tapir

    The tour was gorgeous, and the tour guide was very knowledgeable. We didn't see very many animals during the tram ride, but we did do the short hike and see the butterfly sanctuary and the snakes and frogs on display near the path. We also saw 2 Eyelash Vipers during the hike,
