Description: El Silencio de Los Angeles Walk - Walk around with your head in the clouds...
El Silencio de Los Angeles Walk - Walk around with your head in the clouds as you step into… the heart of the cloud forest with our own nature interpreters who will unveil a secret world of rich tropical life all along this 3 kilometer user-friendly trail. Located right on the hotel property, the trail was created by our hotel’s professional nature guides and is designed to showcase a variety of tropical flora and fauna as it winds its way throughout this rare and incredibly diverse biosphere. As a part of only 2.5% of the planet’s remaining cloud forests, this unique forest habitat continues to amaze our hotel guests and guides, as well as the trained research scientists from INBio (The National Institute of Biodiversity), who stablished staff the first research station to operate on a hotel property in Costa Rica.

We stayed at Villa Blanca and hiked around the cloud forest multiple times. Highly recommend the night hike with Esteban and Roy. They are incredibly knowledgeable and have a passion for all of the cloud forest. We are really big animal geeks, and it is amazing what we were able to see. The clouds move through the forest in the... More

We really enjoyed our stay here and multiple walks all times of day. Great for flora, insects, and birds. The way the clouds come in is magical.

The actual cloud forest is small, but they offer a guided tour or self guided tour. It's free! But they ask that you shop or order a beverage. Many things to see on the walk. The restaurant, gift shop, resort staff are knowledgeable, helpful, and very professional. We had lunch and the menu was expansive, offering everything from soups and... More

Beautiful and serene! Lots of interesting foliage, plants, hummingbirds, frogs and insects. The clouds blow in and out so the scenery changes frequently.

A little up and down but really not bad especially as the sights take your mind off of your feet.Interesting during the day but even more interesting at dusk/night. Need Bug spray and a torch/flashlight for the night walk. Also a guide as unless you know what you are looking for the chances are you will walk straight by frogs... More
