For spectacular eco Costa Rica tours that provide a unique perspective above a tropical rainforest, visit the Rain Forest Aerial Trams Caribbean and Pacific. Now, with two different locations in Costa Rica, our modified ski lifts offer a bird's eye view of the rainforest canopy, which is home to an estimated 60 percent of rainforest species.
The Rain Forest Aerial Tram - Caribbean is located 50 minutes from the capital city of San Jose; it shares a 10 km. border with Braulio Carrillo National Park and constitutes a buffer zone between the National park and the farming lands.
During the 90-minute ride in a silent gondola that skims the rainforest floor and then soars above giant trees, our naturalist guides tell visitors about our eco-tourism activities, ecology and why saving the rainforest is so important for our country's future. Guests at our biological reserve take pictures of the tropical plants they see and wildlife that may show itself during their visit. White faced monkeys, coatimundis, anteaters, eyelash vipers, leaf cutter ants and nearly 400 species of tropical birds all make their home at our sites.
Among the most complete rainforest tours in Costa Rica, the Aerial Tram offers optional transportation from San Jose hotels to both its locations, and to the Pacific tram from hotels in Jaco, Quepos and Puntarenas.
The New Rain Forest Aerial Tram - Pacific, located in the Central Pacific Coast, only two (2) hours driving from San José, continues offering the high quality service that has made us famous. Lush vegetation and many endangered species inhabit the mountainous slopes between the dry Pacific lowlands and adjacent rainforest in Carara National Park.
A 40 feet majestic waterfall shoots from the mountainside close to the tram, and visitors enjoy a relaxing view of the seemingly endless sea from their gondolas. This new ecotourism park is en-route to some of the main tourist destinations for vacations in Costa Rica, perfect for families and adventure travelers or bird watchers on a nature trip.
Information about tourism in Costa Rica and how it has influenced conservation efforts is part of our adventure travel tour. Eco-tourism is now the country's most important industry, and many foreign visitors rate rainforest tours at the Rain Forest Aerial Trams as one of the highlights of their vacation package ideal for families, groups and incentives. We are also the perfect destination for those interested in ecology activities, Thailand detox retreat and other education programs and our experts' naturalist guides will teach about tropical rainforest plants and animals too.
