We took a tour from Central American Tours to Monteverde. It is a long 3-4 hour ride and is very bumpy on undeveloped roads. The bumpy ride is worth it but if you get car sick take medicine before going. Beatiful views of countryside and cloud forest. Saw jhummingbirds before beginning our walk in the cloud forest. Take a rain coat or jacket as it can be rainy and wet here. A one hour walk through forest over a series of hanging bridges was very cool. We saw wildlife such as howler monkeys. Our guide was informative and helpful. Afterwards we had a tour of butterfly garden which had a great collection of butterflies. Highly recommend tour even with bumpy ride.
