Ecoparque de Una currently features the only walk in the tree canopy! The bridge connections are 120 m long and about 25 m above the ground. They are carefully attached to the trees withou doing them harm and still allowing them to grow. Not for the faint hearted (you can go around a hill and meet the group on the other side)
At the beginning of your hike through the Ecoparque, a local entrepreneur will show you how natural rubber (cautchuk, goma) is collected. It is amazing to see the white rubber run down the trunk - but the smell is not so nice...! And considering, that the man has to collect the rubber from 400 trees each day....
Go on a guided tour of the Ecoparque de Una private reserve. This reserve is adjacent to the Biological Reserve of Una, which is only accessible to scientists. This is where the "mico-leao dorado" is protected, a small monkey species whose survival is threatened
