Board your guided air-conditioned transportation and pass through Puntarenas and its surrounding mangroves. Then, head inland into the coastal range of mountains passing by small towns and farming communities such as Barranca, Esparza and Jesus Maria. Here, you'll have the opportunity to see typical Costa Rican rural life. Along the way you may encounter different species of birds as well as sugar cane, bananas, coffee, mangos and other crops that are often exported to North America and Europe. Upon arrival to the canopy tour reception, you'll get geared up with the necessary equipment and briefed on safety instructions. You'll be guided on a 15 to 20 minute walk through the tropical transition forest to the beginning of the tour. Once here, you'll proceed to the first horizontal traverse cable. The Original Canopy Tour consists of nine observation platforms, and eight horizontal traverse cables connected between the immense trees of this tropical paradise. You'll follow a small stream suspended high in the air where wildlife sightings are very common. You may see white-faced capuchin, howler monkeys, varieties of birds, orchids, bromeliads and endangered majestic Mahogany trees. Your journey through the trees will take approximately an hour. At the end of the tour receive complimentary refreshment and fresh fruits. Also, other beverages and souvenirs will be available for purchase once back at the reception area. You'll travel back to the pier via a different scenic route, one that the early farmers used for taking their crops to the old port.
