Amazing Experience Mistico Hanging Bridges Tour

You should make a reservation in advance. Our tour guide was Luis, and he was terrific! He had a telephoto scope that allowed you to take pictures. We saw howler monkeys and multiple birds, coatimundi, a lizard, a snake, and a bat.

Terrific Hike and Views Mistico Hanging Bridges Tour

The hike through the rainforest is absolutely beautiful, and there was a lot of wildlife that we saw in their natural habitat. And while there are 15-16 bridges along the 3.2 km hike, the six hanging bridges and the views they offered were spectacular.
