We went here to see hummingbirds, walk the hanging bridges, and visit the butterfly garden. It was all pretty impressive but surprisingly we didn't see too many animals.

This is a must when you visit Monteverde. Great guides. Excellent facilities. Safe equipment. The zipline is worth the price. They will pick you up and drop you off. A great time with friends and an excellent way to see the Monteverde canopy.

We knew we would love the zip wiring, and we did. There were thirteen wires of different lengths and speeds. The children all came down the final, longest wire as "superman" in a special harness I have not seen before, allowing them to fly down the kilometre long wire on their fronts, It was equally exciting for me the conventional...

The selvatura park is beautiful and offer excellent attractions for many different paces. The zip line was incredible and offered excellent views, definitely try the superman. The hanging bridges were an excellent and beautiful hike, but very very mild walking. A lot of wildlife! While waiting for shuttle we also tried the hummingbird garden which was well worth the five... More

Hello Spencer L., Thank you so much for taking the time and reviewing our park. We are going to look into what can be done about the gnats that you are mentioning. We are in our rainy season and sometimes this sparks insect and mosquito offsprining. Still, we are overjoyed that you had a great time at our park! Mario... More

This is the best zipline canopy tour I have ever done. I heard Monteverde is the best place in Costa Rica to zipline and I agree. Selvatura was recommended to us by three brothers tours and I am very happy with our service. It was cloudy and raining and I was very happy it was! It made for a very... More

First some tips: 1) Bring a raincoat. 2) Bring a waterproof camera/phone or waterproof casing. 3) Bring a good camera, a phone is not sufficient to capture this experience. 4) Wear bright colors if you want hummingbirds to follow you. 5) If you see anything you want at the gift store, BUY IT, you will NOT find monteverde stuff anywhere...
