About Monteverde

Monteverde is privileged to receive a steady supply of clouds and the life-giving moisture that they contain. This moisture, often in the form of fog, catches on the branches of the tallest trees and drips down to the other organisms below. This helps to support a complex and far-reaching ecosystem, one that harbors over 100 species of mammals, 400 species of birds, tens of thousands of insect species, and over 2,500 varieties of plants, 420 of which are orchids alone.

Monteverde Hanging Bridges Nature Exhibit Tour Itinerary

Hotel Pick up

After pick up from your hotel, you will be taken to the Park.  If you are being picked up from Pacific Coast area beaches for your one day tour to Monteverde, we will stop so you have a chance to buy breakfast/coffee.

Sloth Sanctuary

Have a close experience with some 20 sloth specimens. In the sanctuary, the sloths can travel freely between paths specially created to roam among the trees and foliage of the exhibition. This provides a safe distance that allows observation while preventing as much stress on the animals as possible. These beautiful mammals have arrived at the sanctuary as refugees from the effects of poaching, habitat destruction, orphanage, illness and accidents among other reasons that prevent them from being reintroduced to their natural habitat.

Observe more than 14 different species of hummingbirds including a few species that are not commonly seen in the Pacific side of the continental division of Monteverde. At our garden the relaxing ambiance and with beautiful natural floral arrangements provide a perfect setting for natural photography lovers

Costa Rican Lunch

You will be treated to a plentiful Costa Rican style lunch at the lodge inbetween activities.
