Santa Elena Reserve

I was reading the hiking trails in the Santa Elena Reserve are more challenging than El Selvatura. Right now we have the walkways tours, hummingbird and butterfly gardens scheduled. I understand we can eat lunch at the Monteverde reserve and then walk right to the Santa Elena Reserve. If we have say 1.5 to 2 extra hours for Santa Elena, can someone recommend the best way to spend it and what if any trail would be relatively easy to moderate.

Thanks in advance.

You can walk from Selvatura to the Santa Elena reserve very easily- to walk from the Monteverde reserve to Santa Elena reserve would be quite a haul as it takes probably 25 minutes to drive between the two.In the Santa Elena reserve you have 4 trails to choose from: Youth challenge trail-45 minutes(1.4km) Del Bajo trail- 1.5 hrs(2.6km) Encantado trail 2.5hrs(3.4km) and the Cano Negro trail 3.5hrs(4.8km)
