This tour through the forest treetops offers you an exciting experience high above the forest floor.
You may inquire about our expert guides to assist and explain what is going on in this habitat all around you & leave our ordinary ground level to become more connected to nature & to your own true origins. Once you descend back down on the forest floor you may return to your hotel or proceed to your next destination.
We offer you top quality and safe equipment, and our regular local guides, all included in your tour for only US$ 25 per person. Professional naturalist guides &/or transportation are also available at an additional cost. Please let us know if we may be of assistance.
