The Mistico Arenal Hanging Bridges consist of a series of trails, fixed link bridges and suspension bridges. Your naturalist guide will describe the various flora and fauna as well as point out any birds and animals. The guides are experienced to see animals that the untrained eye would glance over. They also have telescopes so you will be able to see the animals up close and take great photos through the lens. You will experience both the ground level of the forest and the tree tops of the canopy. We recommend starting as early in the morning as possible because that is when the animals are most active. There are 1.9 miles of trails.
You need to wear running shoes, not sandals. Bring hats, sunglasses, sunscreen, bug spray, water. Mistico shuttle available from town for $18/person.
