Monteverde Biological Cloud Forest Preserve


Take one of Costa Rica’s most diverse natural history walks! Positioned atop the Continental Divide in the Tilaran Mountain Range, the Preserve extends down both the Caribbean and Pacific slopes of the country.

The resulting combination of climatic and geographic factors creates temperature and humidity gradients which change dramatically over relatively short distances creating micro-climates. Splendid Quetzals and Bell-birds fly above the canopy of forest trees, and iridescent hummingbirds hover around in search of nectar. Because of the activity patterns of animals in this forest, we recommend taking this tour early in the morning so that you can live the experience of seeing wild animals in their natural habitat.
