The Monteverde Cloud Forest is the epicenter of cloud forest exploration. This green oasis is the pride and joy of ecotourism in Costa Rica. Discover the cloud forest from every angle: on ziplines above the trees, overhanging bridges in the canopy, and along walking trails on the forest floor. With over 400 unique bird species, Monteverde is an especially treasured destination for birding. Nature enthusiasts travel far to spot the rare Resplendent Quetzal bird hiding amidst the trees - and an early morning birding tour is the perfect opportunity to see how many you can spot!

We highly recommend discovering the Monteverde region with a professional guide. Especially within national parks and private reserves, guides can point out the natural history, relationships, and wildlife that would have otherwise been missed. Travelers will make the most of their time and experience with one of our professionally guided tours. Additionally, all Monteverde tours can be booked privately for a more personalized experience.

The must-experience tour in Monteverde is the Monteverde Cloud Forest Guided Hike. The cloud forest and its unique ecosystem is the crown jewel of the region. Other popular tours include ziplining and the cloud forest night walk.
The whole family will love the Monteverde Cloud Forest Hike to discover the wildlife of the forest by day.

We highly recommend a guided tour of both Monteverde Cloud Forest in the day and a cloud forest night tour to better understand this complex ecosystem. The Santa Elena Reserve Hike is another fantastic, less -frequented ecological tour!
