The Event

Welcome Meeting with Future Generations

Our visitors will be welcomed by our professional and friendly naturalist Guides at our main Park’s Gate. Appropriate facilities are available for a quick stop. Meanwhile our welcome committee formed by our neighbor community school children wearing their school uniforms will break the silence and with enthusiastic excitement will get ready to meet the visitors. During their short presentation they will read a small piece of poetry in English while guests pay very close attention to their words.

Sight Seeing

Once the welcome meeting is over, the visitors will be escorted to the awaiting transportation, to start the sight seeing tour. In this enhanced visit of the Rain Forest Aerial Trams, here knowledgeable and expert guides who will explain in detail interesting aspects of our wonderful Rain Forest will lecture your guests.

Meet Mother Nature

At our point of view located on top of one of our spectacular valley, our storyteller will perform as Mother Nature with inspiring words for the visitors. At the same time, a unique performance starts inspired on the “awakening” of the rainforest. During the performance the artists are incorporated into the woods as they unveil the different animal and insect characters, which cannot be easily recognized inside the deep vegetation until they start to break in with modern dance and artistic movements. Later our visitors will enjoy the ride along well-groomed pathways to our main visitors center.

Rain Forest Signature Ride

Our Gondola Naturalist Guides will greet guests at the boarding station and participate with them in our exciting signature ride. At this moment, tropical fruit cold K-bobs will be passed by attentive waiters. Our ride is an ecstasy of the worlds most researched nature wonders, where the incredible views of the tropical rainforest will show every layer possible: from the ground level get a close glimpse of the creeks and spring waterfalls. At the mid level the immense tree branches, bird nests and exotic orchids and bromeliads. At the Canopy or higher level, larger bird species, fruits and blossoms. Maybe the most incredible part of the visit will be when the Gondola reaches one of the higher elevations. From this summit; visitors witness the grandeur and magnificence of the pristine Tropical Rain Forest, the huge centennial trees and perfect balance encountered in nature. During the 1-hour ride guests will be lectured in interesting facts and information of the plant and animal species observed.

When the tram reaches its half way, it will stop briefly in order to allow our guests to observe in calm the beauty surrounding them. White gloved waiters will hand out refreshing non-alcoholic cocktails. Guests will stay at the gondola during the length of this stop, since this excursion ahead still has many surprises to unveil.

Butterflies & Raindrops Luncheon or Dinner

Upon arrival at the boarding station, guests will be invited to join the Rain Forest Restaurant, which will be decorated with tropical flower arrangements on the tables. A classical string quartet will play in the background as participants enjoy a Deluxe Buffet.

Once dessert is served, guests will be surprised by the "Butterflies and Raindrops" show. This is a surprising dance and theater presentation where our storyteller will enthrall the group as she emerges from a nest, our dancers perform a simulation of the first steps and movements of the butterfly, one of our park's cherished treasures. This magical tale, that evokes the myth when humans where converted into butterflies, is illustrated by our performers dancing in the dinning area with rare butterfly costumes.

At the end or the show, the storyteller liberates live butterflies free in the forest, while our performers distribute among your guests live butter!ies. Each person will make a wish, blow life onto the butterfly and release it into the Rain Forest.

Hasta Luego

In order to make your guests’ experience in the rainforest and our peaceful country even more memorable, our school children will give each visitor a small token to keep as a memento for this Rain Forest Encounter, later they will say goodbye while waving small Costa Rican flags.
