Monteverde cloud forest

The weather in Monteverde and the cloud forest is wide and varied

Shrouded in mist, the protected cloud forest of the Monteverde Reserve and the surrounding area is a naturalist’s paradise which offers richly diverse flora and fauna. At around 1,400m above sea level, temperatures remain consistently cooler than in other parts of the country. Resplendent quetzals can be spotted from January to July, with their nesting season between April and June.
