Zipping Through the Clouds in Monteverde, Costa Rica
Experience the thrill of stepping off a platform high above the trees for a ride right through the cloud-filled forests. Not for the fainthearted—the longest zip ride is nearly a half-mile long and requires that you step off into the abyss 400 feet from the ground. A canopy tour is without a doubt the most exhilarating way to see the cloud forests that surround Monteverde, Costa Rica. These rainforests are considered cloud forests because of their high altitude—the clouds literally flow right through the forest. The area offers incredible biodiversity so keep your eyes out for monkeys, sloths, and quetzals as you zip through the trees.
