Beautiful cloud forest. Hire a guide if you are not with a group. They will help point out the incredible plant life all around you. Don't expect to see a lot of animal life on the main trails but it is beautiful regardless. You can watch the hummingbirds at the visitor center feeders. The road up to Monteverde is treacherous - need a four wheel drive for sure. Well worth the time to get there. Don't miss the hanging bridges at a park near by - incredible!
