Tree Platform


    If you’re feeling adventurous and aren’t afraid of heights, this is the place for you. Using a pulley and belay system you can climb safely 80 feet up to the top of a giant strangler fig. Your muscles may be quivering by the time you poke your head above the canopy, but the views and the incredible wildlife that can only be seen in the tops of trees are worth it – gliding ants, beautiful orchids, and exotic cactuses all make their homes in the canopy. If you’re lucky, you might also come face to face with a scarlet macaw or a capuchin monkey!
