we loved the Cloud Forest but we would not have enjoyed it half as much if it were not for hiring a private guide. The flora is so different and the wildlife is elusive it is helpful to have trained eye with you.

Totally loved this experience and we whooshed across the canopy along three km of zip wire, wobbled over hanging bridges and saw many birds and butterflies as well as a tarantula in its hideaway.

We did only sky walk portion which is a walk on 5 hanging bridges. We enjoyed it very much. We did it with a guide - I would recommend not to go with guided option. I think it would be much more pleasant to walk on our own. Our guide was not that knowledgeable plus we had to walk in... More

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
