okay we saw some animals which we maybe wouldn't have seen without this tour but I wouldn't recommend it. The tour guide was really annoying telling us all the time that these animals are soooo unbelievable rare and that you can only see them in Monteverede and you have to be really excited and lucky, bla bla... We were walking the same ways up and down for 1.5 hour. The tour guide got information through his walky talky and we had to run to the next location to see a sloth or something else far away. There were around 5 other groups doing the same and the forrest was actually full of people. Didn't like that tour and it was to expensive for what you get.

There are many night tours here in Monteverde, we used the ficas night walk. The guide was very knowledgeable, funny and interesting. There is so much to see at night, and a trained eye can find the scorpions, poisonous snakes, tarantulas, and numerous birds. They supplied us with a flashlight. I would not recommend taking a small child, they may be able to spot what the guide is pointing out, low voices are key so as not to disturb the sleeping wildlife that we are trying to view and the nocturnal animals as well, difficult to walk at night in some areas because its really rocky and lots of uneven surfaces, and at many points we turned off all the lights to see glow in the dark animals and mushrooms. This was quite an experience!

Interesting walk through the jungle at night, saw a few interesting animals that we wouldn't have been able to see during the day. Pretty expensive though and the trails weren't that extensive which made it feel crowded. Probably wouldn't do it again.

This was a delight! At night you get to see the cloud forest and all it's nocturnal creatures and those sleeping. We saw quetzal, tarantula, crickets, owl, bat and so much more! Juan Carlos, our guide, was AMAZING!!!
