The first thing you have to realize is that canopy tours are an amusement ride not a study in nature. You wear a harness that is connected to a pulley that is connected to a cable that runs from platforms attached to trees high up in the canopy. You “zip” from platform to platform. We have had guests as young as 2 and as old as 80 go on the tour. There are canopy tours located through out the country ranging in price from $45 - $85 per person. Most of them are pretty much the same, it is the guides that make the tour fun. We recommend one that is about 20 minutes from here. The Congo Canopy Tour has 11 platforms and takes about an hour to complete, and is $25 for guests from Rancho Armadillo.
After the canopy tour for an additional $5 you can tour their butterfly garden, play with some white-faced and spider monkey’s and get your picture taken with a boa constrictor.
