Overview

Explore one of Costa Rica's most famously diverse ecosystems with a full-day tour from Guanacaste to the Monteverde Cloud Forest Reserve. Travel into the heart of the country and ascend into a misty, verdant landscape that’s home to an astonishing array of plant and animal species. See winged wonders at hummingbird and butterfly gardens, admire brightly colored frogs and snakes, and wander through the treetops along hanging walkways. Breakfast, lunch, and round-trip transport from Guanacaste hotels are included.
  • Full-day tour to the Monteverde Cloud Forest Reserve from Guanacaste
  • Explore one of Costa Rica's most biodiverse regions
  • Stroll through hummingbird and butterfly gardens
  • Observe dozens of species of frogs, lizards, and snakes
  • Walk across the forest canopy on suspended walkways and bridges
  • Great way to experience one of Costa Rica's natural highlights in a single day
  • Typical Costa Rican breakfast and lunch included
Prepare for early morning pickup at your Guanacaste hotel in order to make the most of the day. Watch the landscape change dramatically during the roughly 4-hour drive into Puntarenas province. Depart the sunny, tropical rain forest of the coast and travel up steep, winding roads to reach the Monteverde Cloud Forest Reserve, a protected area that sits perched at 4,600 feet (1,400 meters) above sea level. Stop along the way to stretch your legs and enjoy an included breakfast.
After arriving at the reserve, begin with a visit to one of the world’s largest live butterfly exhibits to learn about the amazing lifecycle of the butterfly and observe many native species fluttering around a natural habitat. Next, explore the cloud forest’s amphibious and scaled residents at an exhibit featuring lizards, geckos, frogs, and more than 30 different types of slithering snakes.
Get a bird’s-eye perspective on the towering trees of Monteverde while traversing 1.9 miles (3 km) of suspended walkways and eight different suspension bridges that criss-cross the forest canopy and hanging gardens below. After this aerial expedition, conclude your visit with a stop at the hummingbird garden, where more than 100 hummingbirds representing 14 different species zip through the air.
Relax on the return bus ride as you descend from the cloud forest back into Costa Rica’s central plains and coastal tropics. Stop for a late lunch of authentic Costa Rican fare on the way back to your hotel, where the tour concludes with drop-off in the evening.
