We arrived right when it opened and the only other person we saw was the other guy on our shuttle. We intentionally went there because I had read that it sees much less traffic. I can't compare it to Monteverde because we didn't go there, but it was absolutely beautiful. The longer trails are a little muddy and not super developed, which we loved. The trails cross small streams and one has an observation tower where you can see above the forest and a volcano. We mostly saw insects and giant millipedes, heard birds, but did see a coati, though it was on the developed trail near the information building. I would say if you want to see much more wildlife, hire a guide. We didn't, but when we hired one at another national park, we saw sloths, all kinds of birds, and bats.Transportation, it seems, is mostly arranged with a shuttle that will pick you up at your hotel and can bring you back, but it is all on a schedule. We spent approximately 4 hours there. At this time, it is $14/ person. I think wheelchairs could go on the trail nearest the visitor center.
