We open at 6:30 a.m, every day, 365 days a year. The Rain Forest
Tram operates from 7:00 a.m. daily ( Mondays from 9:00 a.m.).
The Main Gate is open every day until 4:00 p.m.
GREAT DAY TRIP!
There's lots to see and do here.
The Aerial Tram Ride itself
takes 80 minutes. Guided Nature
Walks in small groups are also
available, as well as marked
nature trails for hikers. Visitors
should plan to spend at least
four hours here, and most come
for the day. Passengers traveling
on our minibuses from San Jose
should plan on approximately six
hours, including travel each way.
It's easy to get here:
· Our Transportation Tour Service:
We offer our own morning transportation service, round-trip
from most major hotels and other convenient points in and
around San Jose. During the high season, we generally offer
transportation in the afternoons as well. This service includes
all admission fees for the Rain Forest Aerial Tram, either breakfast
or lunch, the Tram ride, 45 minute hike (optional), transportation
within the Park, and tax.
( Rates )
English-speaking naturalist guides accompany all buses. We think you will
find this to be a convenient and relaxing way to visit the Tram.
Our office will make arrangements to suit your convenience.
Please tell us your hotel information when you make your reservations.
