Monteverde & Cloud Forest


"Pura Vida" as they say in Costa Rica. Immerse yourself in Costa Rica’s pure and pristine nature! 

Home to one of Costa Rica’s most famous birds, the resplendent Quetzal, the Monteverde area offers pristine cloud forests and amazing biodiversity.

With more than 400 species of birds, thousands of insect species, a large number of mammals and over 400 different type of orchids, it's no wonder why Monteverde Cloud Forest Reserve is one of the main attractions in Costa Rica.

The misty cloud forest can be explored via numerous trails, hanging bridges and canopy tours.

When in Monteverde, explore the nearby Santa Elena Cloud Forest and the Children’s Eternal Rainforest. Coffee plantations and cheese factories can also be visited here.

Sky Walk

The Sky Walk, a combination of 2.5 kilometres of trails and six suspension bridges allows visitors to safely appreciate the rich diversity of the canopy flora and fauna.

Sky Trek is a system of walking trails, zip lines and two observation towers.

The Serpentarium is an amphibian and reptile exhibit that opens every day and offers guided tours every half an hour.

Coffee – Don Juan Plantation

Monteverde is one of the best places in Costa Rica to learn about coffee production in Costa Rica.

Enjoy an excursion to a coffee plantation and learn all the stages in the production process, starting with the planting, harvesting, drying, toasting and grinding of the bean.

A popular trip is the visit to the Don Juan Plantation which lasts 2 hours, with the chance to taste a delicious cup of coffee.

Hiking at Santa Elena Reserve

Offering breathtaking views of Arenal on clear days, this is great walking territory.

All the projects being developed here also focus on the educational development of the region as three hundred and ten hectares bordering the Monteverde Conservation area have been permanently leased by the administration of the Santa Elena community High School.

Sugar Cane – Trapiche Tour

Another great short experience we recommend is a visit to a “trapiche” (sugar cane mill), owned and operated by a Costa Rican family.

Here it’s possible to see how sugar cane is processed, to walk through the plantations and to taste its varied products.

An explanation about coffee, bananas and other crops is included.

Selvatura Park

Without doubt, this on one of the best canopy tours in Costa Rica as the cables are built into the Cloud Forest rather than above it so the feeling is of being immersed in the forest.

Experience gliding along the zip lines through the cloud forest on a canopy tour or take the treetop walkways consisting of a 1.9-mile trail and eight different bridges.

In total, there are 15 cables and 18 viewing platforms that stretch over 2 miles – the longest cable length of any canopy tour in Costa Rica.

Selvature Park also has a butterfly garden and a great hummingbird garden, plus a reptile and amphibian exhibition and a large private insect collection, property of world famous entomologist Dr. Richard Whitten.

Finally, the "Tarzan Swing" at the end of the tour, a large, swing-like contraption allows participants to swing out above the forest and let loose their inner jungle man or woman.
