We know the Monteverde Sky Tram aerial tram well because we’ve ridden it more than once
As we mentioned in our related blog post Sky Adventures Monteverde: Ziplining, Hanging Bridges, And Tram Rides In The Cloud Forest, we’ve been visiting Sky Adventures‘s Monteverde (Santa Elena) and Arenal (La Fortuna) adventure parks and experiencing the company’s adventure and nature tours for more than a decade. In that article, we detailed Sky Adventures‘s entire Monteverde operation, including their Monteverde Sky Trek canopy ziplining tour, their Monteverde Sky Tram aerial tram ride, their Monteverde Sky Walk hanging bridges, their Monteverde Sky Climb Arboreal tree-climbing tour, their Monteverde Vertigo Drop (free-fall activity), their off-site amphibian and reptile exhibit Herpetarium Adventures, and their on-site facilities including free lockers, free parking, dining opportunities, and more. If you’re interested in learning about the various tours, activities, and services that are available at the Sky Adventures Monteverde Park, please see the article linked to above. If you’re specifically interested in learning about Sky Adventures‘s Monteverde Sky Tram aerial tram tour, please continue reading below.
Monteverde Sky Tram experience
Unlike the scenery you’ll be treated to at the Sky Adventures Arenal Park, which includes views of the Arenal Volcano and Lake Arenal, the view you’ll get while riding the Monteverde Sky Tram is one of endless cloud forest canopy. Sky Tram rides are a great way to view Costa Rica’s lush landscape from above, and Monteverde promises beautiful scenes that are bursting with vibrant, varied shades of green.
At the Sky Adventures Monteverde Park, you can ride the Sky Tram on its own or as part of the Sky Trek canopy ziplining tour. On its own, you’ll ride the tram up to the top of the cloud forest and down again, ending where you departed at Sky Adventures‘s operations center. As part of the Sky Trek canopy ziplining tour, after riding the tram in one direction (up to the top of the cloud forest), you’ll zipline down to Sky Adventures‘s operations center.

Monteverde Sky Tram logistics
A one-way Sky Tram ride at the Sky Adventures Monteverde Park lasts approximately 20 minutes when counting from the moment the tram compartment departs from Sky Adventures‘s operations center until the moment the tram compartment arrives at a platform at the top of the cloud forest.
If you’re experiencing the Sky Tram ride as part of the Sky Trek canopy ziplining tour, you’ll only ride the tram one way (to the top of the cloud forest). Once you disembark at the platform at the top of the cloud forest, you’ll begin the ziplining portion of the tour and you won’t return to (or ride) the tram again.
If you reserve the Sky Tram ride only (i.e., if you do not plan to participate in the Sky Trek canopy ziplining tour), you’ll ride the tram both ways (to the top of the cloud forest and back down again). You’ll be given approximately 20 minutes to explore the platform at the top of the cloud forest. During that time, you can take in beautiful views of the cloud forest (assuming the area isn’t shrouded by clouds), snap photos, and scan the forest canopy for birds and wildlife. Just off the platform is a short nature trail that you’re welcome to explore on foot. The trail will introduce you to flora and critters native to the area, including a variety of plants, flowers, insects, amphibians, and reptiles, most notably ferns, orchids, torch flowers, spiders, and lizards. You may also hear the bellowing cries of territorial howler monkeys that reside around Monteverde. Once you re-board the tram compartment, you’ll spend approximately 20 minutes riding it back to the operations center. The ride will complete your 1-hour Sky Tram aerial tram experience.
