I love Monteverde, this is my second time visiting the Cloud Forest, and although enjoyable cause I was invited to walk with a couple I met. However I strongly recommend hiring a naturalist, or joining a group with a naturalist, they know what to look for, and have fine tuned ears for heaing the environment.

We took a tour to the monte verde cloud forest which included about a one hour walk on a paved path up and down through the forest and over about 8 hanging bridges which were really amazing (bring shoes with good traction and walking poles if you have them). The flora was awesome and you could see and practically walk... More

We took the whole package, with walk over the bridges, train to the top and zip lines down. The walk is the sort in which you will see something, with the zip lines everything goes by very fast. It is a lot of fun, but do not think that you'll be able to see wildlife around! A word of advice,... More

Fantastic value for money. We did NOT book outr trip with the hotel... More

A must for Monteverde! The clouds makes one feel heavenly. Be there in the morning to be surrounded by creatures from Mother nature.

it was so much fun to zip line for like more than 10kms. 2 hours or more of non stop fun. And donot forget great views of the rain forest. I will suggest for girls to wear jeans or a thick track pant or lowers, the harness hurts you after half n hour and if it rains you can get... More

The walk was so beautiful :) We booked the sky adventures package ( sky walk, trek, and tram) for 85$ each! The walk was fantastic, but the tram and ziplining was unlike anything I have ever done before! It was absolutely incredible and it was so much fun! it was freezing up there, but we got free hot chocolate and... More
