Unique in the world
The area of Matapalo Costa Rica welcomed a new innovative attraction which is unique in the world! Within a 15 minutes’ drive of Playa Matapalo you will find the EcoTram at wildlife refuge Hacienda Baru.
The opposite of zip-lining
This unique new ride is the opposite of the popular zip-line rides that you find in Costa Rica. The EcoTram is not fast, it is slow and you are in control of the speed; you can even stop it yourself! Hanging between the canopy about 10 meters (30 ft) from the ground, you will have all the time to observe the natural beauty of the rainforest. Unlike zip-lining the EcoTram is accessible for almost everyone, also for elderly and disabled that can make the walk from where you start.
Rate: USD 30,- for a 20- to 30-minute ride.
Location; the EcoTram at Hacienda Baru is located 11 KM south of Matapalo; on the Costanera Sur (Route 34; Carretera Pacífica Fernández Oreamuno) you turn right just before the gas station El Ceibo.
