Great little place with loads of pasties and places to sit. Just a few feeders attract plenty of birds and it is a delight to sit and watch.

This is a shop, gallery and coffee shop complex just before the entrance to the cloud forest. Its main feature are the nectar feeders which means there is a constant supply of humming birds around. If you have a camera and like birds, this is...More

At the Hummingbird Gallery at the entrance to the Monteverde Reserve was amazing. We caught the local bus from Santa Elena for C600 one way just to see the birds. There were lots, assorted sizes and colours. Well worth the visit.

Small little place to watch lots of hummingbirds eat from feeders. A dozen or more wild hummingbirds coming and going. But free. Interesting but not long.

When you get to the only town there is, Santa Elena, follow the paved road all the way up hill towards the Monteverde Cloud Forest Preserve. The first half of the road is paved and the rest isn't. The Hummingbird Gallery is... More
