After pickup from your hotel in Flores or Santa Elena, it is a 15 minute drive in the minibus to the Ixpanpajul private nature reserve, located just 10 km from Flores.
You can combine this activity with Canopy tour and/or Horse riding tour (book a combo and save money).
When you arrive at the reserve, you will be greeted at the welcome center, where you will receive a short explanation of the Sky Way bridges hike. It is a self guided hike of easy to moderate effort.
You start off at ground level, and follow the well marked trail, going gradually up steps and into the hills. There are a total of 5 hanging bridges to enjoy, of different heights and lengths, so bring your camera to take some great photos. Just over half way, you reach the highest point, and there is a resting area with hammocks, restrooms, and panoramic views of the lake and the surrounding jungle.
The earlier or later in the day you go, the more chance you have of spotting monkeys, toucans, parrots, or other birds and wildlife inside the reserve.
