with aerial gardens and the millions of creatures reliant on them, the
rainforest canopy is the planet's last great ecological frontier. It is
another continent of life, where hundreds of species - earthworms, frogs,
and orchids - never descend to the earth. According to biologist,
eight out of ten canopy species remain unnamed and unclassified by science.
Now in Drake Bay, utilizing technology
once available to only a small vanguard of scientists, guests of Drake Bay
Rainforest Chalet can enter this biological wonderland on The Canopy Tour.
With a vantage point even Tarzan would envy, you might even find yourself
eye to eye with a three-toed sloth.
The Canopy Tour, operated by Jinetes de
Osa, is designed with six platforms, four traverse cables, and a 65 foot
observation bridge. On one of the traverse cables, participants
fly through the forest for a distance of 210 adrenaline-filled feet.
No less spectacular, the descent to the forest floor is achieved by
rappelling to the edge of a tranquil tropical stream.
Guests of Drake Bay Rainforest Chalet
can also Combine an afternoon of horseback riding with the Canopy Tour or a
guided hike to the Agujitas Waterfall.
