Located in Costa Rica’s Central Highlands, the lofty,
cloud-wreathed mountaintop of Monteverde is
another top destination in Costa Rica. Monteverde’s
rare ecosystem is internationally famous as one of
the most extensive cloud forests in Central America.
At 1,800 m (5,900 ft.) elevation, this natural sanctuary is blessed with an “eternal spring” climate
– fresh, misty and chilly, with pockets of warm sunshine and rainbows. In this cathedral of
green, trees drip with dew-soaked hanging moss and vines, splashed with colorful delicate
orchids, bromeliads, epiphytes and ferns. More than 2,500 different types of plants and animals,
including 400 species of birds, call Monteverde’s cloud forest home.
Activities on the tour: Walk in the cloud forest, aerial tram, canopy zip-line tour and lunch.
