Small Group Cloud Forest Walk
From US$41.00
With a guided tour, a leisurely walk in the Monteverde Cloud Forest Reserve or Curi Cancha Reserve is transformed into an educational outing with plenty of opportunities to see plants, birds, and other wildlife you might miss on your own. This tour is led by a naturalist guide who can answer any of your questions about the cloud forest, animals, or Costa Rica in general—a small-group tour means you’ll have lots of chances to ask.
What to Expect
You'll be picked up at your hotel in the morning, and brought to one of our wonderful trails in the Monteverde area.
Depending on the others in your small group and your guides' recommendation, you might go go the Monteverde Reserve, Santa Elena Reserve, Curi Cancha Reserve, Aguti Reserve, or SkyWalk bridges.  Upon arriving at your trail, your guide will pay the entrance fees, and then you'll start your leisurely, slow pace guided forest walk.  (Tip: it's a "walk," not a "hike"!)  The terrain is generally accessible, though the Santa Elena Reserve has one trail that is wheelchair accessible.
Your approximately 3hr walk will entail walking small distances and stopping often, to observe, soak up information from your guide, and learn about the wonders of the cloud forest and other forests.  You'll also get to use binoculars and a telescope to enhance bird and other wildlife viewing (wildlife never guaranteed).  After your tour, you'll be dropped back off at your hotel.

Awesome guide in a very unique setting

Marcos was an incredibly intelligent, smart guide who created an unforgettable experience for our group in the Monteverde Cloud Forest. He would spot things miraculously and then quickly setup the spotting scope so us normal eyesight people would be able to see what he was...More

Marcos is the BEST!

OK I'm not a birder or all that interested in small animals, reptiles etc. HOW-ever, our 2 cloud forest walks with Marcos from Passion Costa Rica, which our travel planner, Costa Rica Custom Trips, had reserved many months in advance, were absolutely engaging and extremely...More
