This high elevation rain forest offers miles of trails with excellent opportunities for bird watching.

 

Monteverde Cloud Forest was founded about 40 years ago by a small group of conservation-minded Quakers who were looking for a peaceful place to live. 

Its Cloud Forest Reserve is one of the most outstanding wild life sanctuaries in the tropics. This high elevation rain forest offers miles of trails with excellent opportunities for bird watching. 

The resplendent Quetzal is often sighted up here (mostly January to July). It is for this reason that more visitors are attracted to this private reserve than to any other in Costa Rica.

Monteverde Cloud Forest offers a wide range of hotel accommodation options that include everything from moderate hotels to deluxe and secluded mountain lodges.
