The hanging bridges is a series of bridges that are suspended in the rain forest of area or vegetation or creeks. Some of the bridges are 80 meters long, and a good 30-40 meters above the ground.
The bridges are connected with a walking trail which is narrow enought that you cannot walk next to each other. Being in the rain forest and hearing everthing was pretty amazing. I did not really see too many animals. If you do this, make sure to do it with a guide, wear proper hiking shoes, and bring water to drink, as it's pretty hot and extremely humid.
I made a big mistake and did this walk alone, and in my boat shoes. If I would to it again, it would do it with a group and guide. I have a huge snake fobia. And I thought every sound, branch and root was one of the 136 species of snakes.
I almost ran the last 1/2 to get out, and was very happy to see my car. And I didn't see any snakes:)
Directions: There are several ones. I did the one by the begining of Lake Arenal if you are driving from the Tabacon Resort.
