Monteverde Cloud Forest    


World famous Monteverde is, the ultimate cloudforest destination for many people looking to walk in the clouds. Perhaps this is because so much attention from the international scientific and conservation communities has been focused on the islolated and beautiful area, atop Costa Rica's Tilaran Mountains, Monteverde forests are protected in nearly 30,000 hectares of private reserves, including the Monteverde Cloud Forest, Santa Elena and the ChildrenEternal Rainforest. Excellent trail systems allow you to leisurely discover the many facets of this complex life zone. Often shrouded in clouds blown in from the Atlantic Ocean, the forests of Monteverde are laden with epiphytic growth such as mosses, lichens, ferns, bromeliads, orchids-even small trees. Famous for its populations of Resplendent Quetzal, Monteverde has almost become synonymous with this legendary bird. Other cloud forest denizens include the Black-faced Solitaire, Golden-browed Chlorophonia and Black Guan. The area was originally a small forest reserve set aside by the 50's and decided to protect the watershed for their dairy industry. Visitors to the area will also find other environmentally sensitive tourism activities including a Butterfly Garden, a Sky Walk, a Serpentarium and more. Monteverde is four hours from San Jose, including 35 km of gravel mountain road.
