I could do only one thing in Monteverde and chose to go to the cloud forest over Extremo bungee jumping. Although, I'm sure bungee would be more exciting I did enjoy the hike through the forest. We arrived late so did the short two hour hike. We saw few birds and rat/pig like animal (don't remember the name) crossed our road. Once we got higher all we saw was strange vegetation that grows in the cloud forest. It became very cold very quickly, but it was nice to experience. Next to reserve is a garden with so many hummingbirds that seeing them was worth the trip. The cloud forest might not exist in the future due to global warming so it was good to experience it.

This was a great hike that offered many different trails based on difficultly and duration. We picked at trail designated to last around 2 hours and finished in less than 90 minutes. The trails were muddy and we left soaked, but really enjoyed it! Although from the top you could feel the clouds zooming past you, the day we went was pretty overcast and you couldn't see out at all. I'm sure when the sun is out, it's even better.

Enjoy!

We had a knowledgeable and friendly guide who showed us and taught us about a wide variety of wildlife, including the trees, flowers, birds, snakes, beetles, frogs, and other insects. Be prepared for rain at any time.

Like: great learning opportunity and good nature hike (i have been there twice). Dislike: well, bird/animal watching is a luck game, and i was lucky once and unlucky in another time.

Went for a 6-hour hike. It was very pretty and very peaceful. We saw monkeys, the quetzal and some beautiful birds. We didn't hire a guide but hiring one would probably let you see more wildlife and learn more about them. I recommend spending some time at this beautiful cloud forest.
