Sky Trek is similar in some ways to other canopy tours in Costa Rica, but does have some significant differences. In general, it is much larger than other canopy tours — there are more zip lines and platforms, longer trails, and a series of suspension bridges — making these Monteverde, Costa Rica zip lines more of a playground in the sky. Adding to the fun? The reassurance that the construction here is of the highest quality, utilizing secure materials to ensure that you do not slip, trip, or fall.
The Sky Trek zip line does not require any kind of particular athletic ability. You only need to be able to sit down, remain calm, and focus your attention on the zip line you’re about to travel down — guides and gravity do the rest.
If this is your first adventure vacation, don’t worry; we have “Answers To All Of Your Questions About Adventure Tours In Costa Rica.”
An extra benefit of this tour is the ride you will be able to take in the Sky Tram. Beginning in the main facilities at a lower elevation, you will mount the tram and enjoy a safe and scenic ride up the mountain. In total, the ride takes about 20 minutes and offers astounding views of the surrounding rainforest. Once at the top, you’ll mount a series of steps and meet with your guides.
Before you go flying down the zip lines, your guides will teach you the proper techniques, including how to hold onto the cable and how to position your body. They will make sure that your gear is properly adjusted and help you launch off from each platform. Unlike other zip lines in Costa Rica, you don’t need to worry about braking at the end of this one. Your guides will utilize a pulley system to slowly decrease your speed as you approach the next platform.

Since your guides take care of starting and stopping you along each cable, you can relax and enjoy the ride. You are free to change your group order at any time during the tour, making it easy to go ahead or drop behind the rest of your party. This allows you the time and space to take photos and videos, or just catch your breath, and appreciate the beauty of Costa Rica’s flora and fauna from amazing heights.
