You probably won't find another place like this as it is a rain forest but higher in the mountains so it is cool even in the summer. Best to go during the spring when it is still the dry season. If you go in the fall it will be wet all the time. Be prepared for a lot of walking. And don't forget the last 20 K of road is not paved so it is very bumpy takes about an hour to slug through this experience. The town of Santa Elena has paved roads but Monteverde does not. There are a lot of great places to stay some for all budgets. Taxi's are reasonable and they know where they are going. Many of them speak some English and if you stay for any length of time you will see people you have met at the store or on the road. Everyone either knows everyone or is related to someone. There are many great places to hike. Some are guided hikes. You will see some of the most interesting animals. Some fly, some crawl. Monkeys, Toucans, Parrots, all kinds of beasty.
