Curi-Cancha is a beautiful, new refuge just down the road from the more famous Monteverde Cloud Forest. We were intending to go to Monteverde but had heard from fellow travelers that Curi Cancha is full of wildlife and also an intimate experience. We were happy with our decision when we arrived to this beautiful refuge and had our own private guide for the same cost as being in a much larger group at Monteverde.
Melvin Leitón was a wonderful guide-full of enthusiasm and knowledge, and had a great manner of imparting this wisdom. We were lucky to see Emerald Toucanets, Bluecrowned motmots, Orange-Bellied Trogons, and two Quetzales-an adult and juvenile male. We aren't birders but after this hike I became so much more interested in them. The hikes are relatively mild, so all your focus can go to spotting wildlife.
