Costa Rica: Monteverde and the cloud forest

Visit Us

Native cloud forest has mostly been removed from the rolling Cordillera de Tilarán mountain range in Costa Rica’s northwest. Happily the protected Monteverde Reserve conserves a lush environment of humid vegetation so rich in wildlife that it has become a base for naturalists from all over the world.


The magical forest is frequently swathed in mist, which encourages the growth of mosses and ferns which add to the fairyland feel. The many indigenous mammals and birds can thrive undisturbed, and observation of many of these is more or less guaranteed. The park is the habitat of the Resplendent quetzal, and has the largest number of orchid varieties in the world.

What our experts say

Costa Rica is a tropical paradise of steamy jungles, volcanoes and wild rivers. One of the highlights of my trip was hiking through the cool, misty Monteverde cloud-forest where there are six different habitats: a landscape that time forgot of tinkling streams, waterfalls, butterflies, hummingbirds and huge plants.
