All the bridges are made of galvanized steel and high-strength aluminum. You will be able to experience the rain forest from three different perspectives: from the ground like a jaguar, from the midst of the canopy like a white faced monkey, and from the air like an eagle. The trails, covering a distance of about 3.1 kilometers, are right inside the forest. Afternoon is free time to explore the beautiful grounds of the hotel.
