Monteverde Reserve is located on the Continental Divide, the boarder between the Pacific and Atlantic sides of Costa Rica. On a clear day, hiking in the Monteverde Cloud Forest reserve, allows you to see the Pacific ocean from way up high in the mountains, even though it is miles away!

    Monteverde Cloud Forest Biological Reserve
    Stop: 3 hours - Admission included
    The hike is not strenuous and is at a gentle pace but you have to be in reasonably good physical condition. The guides point our interesting plants and birds and do their best to find mammals. Animals are hard to spot but whether you see them or not the guides make the forest come alive with their extensive knowledge of the flora and fauna and history of Monteverde.

Sorry to say that the guide to whom I was assigned, although I think he knew his stuff, was at the least having a bad day and at the most just didn’t give a hoot. The walk was very short and the only thing he cared about was finding a quetzal. We came a Upon another guide who

Response from MonteverdeAdventure, Reservations Department at Monteverde Cloud Forest Reserve Guided Hike
Responded 21 Jan 2020
Hola Debra, Thank you for getting back to us with some feedback. I am sorry to hear you did not enjoy this tour. The guide you were assigned is one of the best guides we work with, we are very surprised by your comment since we had never received a complaint about him. The hike is about 3 hours and at a gentle pace since not all clients can walk as fast. Wildlife is not always spotted since it is a protected area and they can't control where animals are found(these animals are not fed or kept captive). The guides do know a lot about Natural History, therefore we try to not focus the tour on only finding animals, but more learning about the Cloud Forest and the area. Our guides try to not focus the tours on finding the quetzal, since it is hard to spot certain days, unless a client requests seeing it, there a lot of people that travel to Monteverde only to see the beautiful bird so the guides make an extra effort when this is the case. The other clients that did the tour with you let us know they also did not see a lot of wildlife but they were very happy that they got to see the quetzal and they were happy with the guide as well. Again we apologize about the inconvenience and hope you can give the tour another opportunity if you come back. Thank you! Angélica Fuentes
