At Mistico Arenal Hanging Bridges Park, different ecosystems come together forming a transition vegetation belt with a high level of biodiversity that can be found along the border between two types of forests: upland and lowland, bringing together species from both areas.
Throughout years of evolution, the plant life of the lowland rainforests, typical in Sarapiquí and Tortuguero, has undergone an altitude migration of up to 500-600 metres, allowing it to encounter and interact with upland plant life.
For this reason, the tree canopies at Mistico Park offer a richly diverse environment with a strong presence of various species of epiphyte plants, birds, mammals, butterflies, and much more. These can be observed up close on the hanging bridges.
