Monteverde Attractions

Monteverde's cloud forests drip with life creating hiking experiences unlike any other place in Costa Rica. Trek through the forest that carpets the continental divide where light dappled trails lead through verdant valleys brimming with ancient oaks and gnarled fig trees; their canopies dense with emerald leaves, their roots sprawled over the forest floor scattered with leaves.

Meanwhile, a variety of different exhibits close to Santa Elena showcase Monteverde's unique plant and animal life. Visit the Monteverde Butterfly Garden for a close-up look at glass-wing butterflies, stop by the Bat Jungle to watch the fruit and nectar-eating bats or drop in the Orchid Garden to see some of the 400 species of orchids that live in the canopy of Monteverde's cloud forest.
