Visitor Information
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.


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.
