Overview
This is the most pure inland hike available in Costa Rica. Feel the excitement of going through rivers, hiking on beautiful mountain trails, going into the dense jungle for hours, having the most scenic volcano and lake views and experiencing the rural lifestyle in a totally secluded valley. Once we arrive at the mountain cabin you get thrown back in time cooking on a wood fire stove, enjoying the pure food and the company at the candle lit table. Having spend the night we get going to finish the leg of the hike that takes us to Monteverde. Tired but undoubtedly satisfied you can congratulate yourselve, your fellow hikers and your tour guide for having been part of this unforgettabe adventure.

Response from RedLavaTsc, Owner at Extreme Nature Hike Fortuna to Monteverde
Responded 20 Feb 2021
Hi Perrina, You are among the few brave ones that have enjoyed this amazing hike. The real of the grid hike through untouched jungle taking you high up into the mountains. There is no more authentic way of getting to Monteverde than on foot. The cabin is far away from civilization and has the best unspoiled views. Its primitive and back to basics and it gives you the best posibilty to totaly disconnect from todays digital overload. Glad you had a good time with your guide, you spent almost two days together so a good click is important. .
