Monteverde Cloud Forest Reserve, Monteverde Reviews
The park is stunning. There is a small free parking right by the park don't get fooled by the 'official parking' some way before the entrance - keep going. The staff were super nice. There's a cafe just outside and a restaurant inside the park (food okay not amazing). At the entrance they asked how much time we had and suggested an optimal walking path for our time. The paths are clearly marked and we got a map. The park is stunning and we recommend going early - it was almost empty and very serene. We loved it and would have liked to spend more time there!
Outstanding nature preserve. We went with a guide. He asked us how much time we wanted to spend, and he took us on a route that was appropriate to our time frame. There weren't any explanatory signs so the information we gathered was from the guide. He had a green laser pointer to that he used to show us interesting stuff we would otherwise have missed. He, like all the other guides, had a telescope on a tripod that he would set up to show us things that we could see no other way such as the hummingbird nest with the nestlings sticking up their wide open beaks.
We love Monteverde! Our favorite destination in Costa Rica so far. Our guide Mauricio was worth every penny, was very knowledgeable and snapped some marvelous wildlife photos for us all. A bit pricey, but we enjoyed it. It's a truly magical area.
The Monteverde Park is excellent for an experience in the cloud forest. I strongly advise to wear boots or good trekking shoes because the paths are often slippery and muddy. It may also be interesting to bring a light coat because it is often cooler at the top of the mountain under the canopy. Unfortunately, it is true that it is quite rare to see wild animals, this is obviously due to the many passages of tourists who speak loudly and other visitors to the park. Go to this biological reserve to appreciate the exceptional flora and count yourself lucky if you see a wild animal. You will be able to observe without problem the numerous hummingbirds in the coffee at the entrance of the park. You will also appreciate to have a good SUV or truck 4X4 on the little roads (145, 605 or 606 and 620) that are going up to the park entrance (+- 1hour)
Incredible views! It was very cool and windy, which was a bit unexpected. Make sure to bring water resistant outerwear that can be removed if needed. There are several trails, some of which involve climbing, but nothing too strenuous. A must see!
