All visitors must have a reservation. Walk-ins are not allowed due to the limited capacity the trail can handle. There’s also a new government limit on the number of visitors each park can allow (which changed due to COVID-19). Click the “Book Now” button for real-time availability and reservations. If you try to book now and don’t see availability, you may contact us (our contact information is at the bottom of this page) to see if we got any last-minute cancellations that may free up the spots you need.
The start times for this activity are 8:30 AM, 11 AM, 1 PM, and 2:30 PM. After you click “Book Now,” you will only see the times we have availability. For example, if we’re full at 8:30 AM, you will not see that option on your screen.
However, we may still be able to allow you to come at another time (including “non-official” start times such as 9 or 10 AM). In those circumstances, please contact us to find an alternative. Our contact information is at the bottom of this page. We’re online MON-SUN from 6 AM to 10 PM (Costa Rica Time) and you can call, email or chat with us. We also have a WhatsApp button floating on the page, which you can use if you have the WhatsApp App installed in your device. Our experienced staff will be happy to assist you and we usually respond pretty quickly.
If you don’t have a car to get to the park, we can provide a free shuttle service from your Monteverde Hotel/Airbnb to the park and back to your Hotel/Airbnb. Our shuttles are large vans with A/C, and they pick up/drop off multiple customers simultaneously.
We have specific pickup times depending on your location, so after you book online, you will first receive your confirmation email, and then (a few hours later), you will get a follow-up email with the pickup time at your Hotel/Airbnb.
On the way back from the park to your Hotel/Airbnb, our shuttles also leave the park at specific times (usually every hour), so you may need to wait at the park’s reception for a while after you finish your activity. We work like this to minimize the number of cars on the road to keep up with our gas emissions target to remain a sustainable park.
Please note that some Hotel/Airbnb’s locations are advertised as part of Monteverde, when in reality, they are far away from town. And they might be outside our service area. If that is your case, we will let you know via a follow-up email, so that we can try to find a solution for you or cancel your reservation with a full refund.
We have a flexible cancelation policy.
After you book online, you will get an automatic confirmation email. This confirmation email contains a “Cancel” button, so you can easily cancel online without talking to anyone (no need to provide explanations).
If you cancel at least 24 hours before the activity day, you will get a full refund (otherwise, there will not be a refund). For example, if your tour is on February 28 at 8:30 AM, you should cancel before February 27 at 0:00 AM to get a refund. You will not get a refund if you cancel on February 27 at 0:01 AM or later.
On the other hand, this activity generally operates under most weather conditions (including rain) unless it is risky for participants (such as during heavy thunderstorms). If you arrive at the park and the weather prevents us from letting you in, we can try to reschedule or give you a full refund.
Selvatura Park’s hanging bridges are typically stable and designed to provide visitors a safe and relatively steady walk through the cloud forest canopy. The bridges are pretty firm, and they only swing slightly as you walk on them.
