See the rainforest from above the tree tops on this aerial tram ride from San Jose! You'll get a bird's eye view of the Costa Rican rainforest and have the chance to spot exotic wildlife and plants.
Located about an hour outside of San Jose, Braulio Carrillo National Park is a site not to be missed. This large park is home to several dormant volcanoes and is one of the most bio diverse rainforests in Costa Rica.
After pickup from your hotel, you’ll be on your way to the rainforest. Once you’ve arrive, you’ll take a walk along forest trails where your bilingual guide will lead you to the awaiting aerial tram. You'll get the chance to explore the hanging gardens of the rainforest up close from the comfort and safety of the aerial tram.
The tram will take you on a 70-minute ride through the canopy, allowing you to discover the beauty of the rainforest from up above. You’ll see plants, animals and birds in this hidden world of tremendous beauty and extraordinary biological diversity. Enjoy lunch out in the lush setting of the rainforest before returning to San Jose.

This tour was pretty great! It is a bit of a trip from San Jose, but the small bus was very air conditioned and roomy, and the guide and driver were both great and entertaining.
There's a lot of different tours at this particular location, so make sure you look around to find the right one for you. This particular tour includes the trip, a nice nature walk, lunch, and the tram tour. There are others that include things like zip lining, etc. if that's your sort of thing, too, and you'll be grouped with other people for the trip and then separated there based on what you've booked.
The nature walk was pretty cool, and informative, and our guide very knowledgeable. Do not go in expecting to see a ton of wildlife - you'll see lots of plants and insects, but most likely won't see much in the way of animals keep in mind those tv shows shoot for weeks or months to get all the things they want to show.
After the walk we went to lunch which is sort of buffet style and included chicken, rice, beans and some sides. It wasn't magnificent, but it was filling and tasty enough.
The tram tour itself was pretty cool! They each seat a max of six people, we just had four plus our guide, and it was nice to give us a little extra room. On the way 'up' it goes right along the rain forest floor and you can see all sorts of small streams, insects, trees, etc. and on the way back it comes down along the canopy where you have an entirely different view of the rainforest and you can see how they differ.
Overall I definitely recommend the tour if you're looking for a day spent away from San Jose, exploring the rain forest, and are not looking at doing any huge hikes or anything. The nature walk was very easy and not demanding at all.

An outstanding tour. It included two nature walks, lunch, the aerial tram, and butterfly garden. Our tour guide, Fabian was very knowledgable and accommodating. A must do in all respects!
