My partner and I had a fabulous time! I loved watching all the hummingbirds on property. Larry and Oscar were gracious hosts! We felt like we were part of the family. I fell in love with Monteverde! We went on adventurous tours and did long hikes in the rainforest! I plan to go back soon! You can be one with... More
