Sky Walk in the Forest
Information not currently available.
Approximately 4½ Hours
Visit the Sky Walk in the Forest, consisting of several trails and three cable bridges.
Set out on a one-hour, moderate-to-strenuous downhill walk affording breathtaking views of the coastline. Along the way, you're likely to see the birds and animals that make their homes in the treetops. More than 120 species of birds have been identified here, as well as kinkajou, agoutis and coatis.
Next, re-board your motorcoach to visit the famous El Jardin Souvenir Shopping Plaza -- a well-stocked souvenir store. A snack of fresh fruit and water will replenish some of the energy you left behind in the forest.
Heading back to the ship, you'll have great memories of this chance to stretch your legs in a completely different environment.
Wear sturdy walking shoes. There is a considerable amount of walking required and the trails may be muddy, as it rains frequently here. Minimum age is 8 years. Not suitable for guests with heart or respiratory conditions due to heat and humidity and the level of activity. You will cross three hanging bridges and negotiate uneven trails. Wear light clothing, insect repellent and sunscreen. Bring raingear. Wildlife sightings are likely but are not guaranteed.
