Activities ideas


We will be in Monteverde for 1.5 days in November with our 21-month-old toddler (after 3 days in arenal).

The activities we were considering are:

-hanging bridges (i'd imagine this is an all day event)...2 possibilities: (a) santa Elena skywalk or (b) skywalk night tour. Are these te same thing, just one is at night? Recommendations?

- bosque eterno de Los niños

- Monteverde butterfly garden

What do you think? Other recommendations? Should/could we do all of these things?

The hanging bridge hike takes about 3 hours. Monteverde is a little chilly so during the rainy season butterflies are not very active. When they are indoors if the building doesn't have the proper temperature they don't come out.

I would suggest to do a night tour and a day hike through the cloud forest as well. The best way to do this tours is with a tour guide.

Good luck
