Monteverde Cloud Forest*

Located in the Puntarenas province of Costa Rica, above the continental divide between the Caribbean and the Pacific, Monteverde Cloud Forest sits at an altitude of 5,000 ft above sea level. Monteverde contains a vast and complex eco-system that is sure to take your breath away— there are over 100 species of mammals, 400 species of birds, tens of thousands of species of insects, and over 2500 varieties of plants (420 of which are just orchids).

At Selvatura Park, you will go zip lining, experiencing 15 cables and 18 platforms with an optional Tarzan swing at the end of the adventure. This is one of the longest Canopy Tours in Costa Rica and the only canopy tour located inside the Monteverde Cloud Forest. Visitors can also walk on eight different bridges with various lengths, ranging from 150 feet ( 50 meters ) to 510 feet ( 170 meters ), and altitudes ranging from 36 feet ( 12 meters ) to 180 feet ( 60 meters ).

Also, you can explore a community of butterflies that contains more than 20 species. You will learn about their life cycle, their special abilities, and behaviors that have helped them evolve throughout thousands of years. Enjoy a guided walk inside one of the world’s largest live butterfly exhibitions with that is over 29,000 square feet (2,700 square meters). 
Don’t forget to see one of Monteverde’s breathtaking sunsets.

We recommend a poncho, hiking shoes or tennis shoes, and extra pants.
