Costa Rica Day 4: Selvatura Hanging Bridges

After Santa Elena Reserve, we took the short ten minute hike to Selvatura Hanging Bridges. It was a completely different experience to go from hiking within the forests to hiking above the canopy.

Was it touristy? Hell yes. It's an eco-adventure park, with zip lines as its main draw. We did the less popular option, which was just hiking over eight sets of bridges. Every now and then, we'd hear the screaming and the mechanical whirr of someone ziplining by.

Oh well.

It was still beautiful. It's about a two mile trail and only took about an hour and a half.

While I'm terrified of heights, there were only a couple bridges that scared the bejeebus out of me. It's less scary when the treetops are brushing the bottom of the bridge – it's only when they're much farther down that you realize exactly how high you are.
