Monteverde Cloud Forest Reserve, Monteverde Reviews
3.5 stars. Of you have a good guide like I did (Elvin). A real passionate naturalist. The reserve is nice with walkable mostly paved paths. Expect to see, birds more then anything ( Quedzales), you will hear about monkeys and sloths but most likely will not see any. May be a tarantula, a non venomous snake. You will get a great ecology lesson and lots of plant talk. It's not a bad way to spend 2.5 hours. If you go by yourself, you can spend all day walking around exploring. I would recommend that as well.
We had such a great time this time around. I've been here once before and didn't see much wildlife then. But regardless, just the forest itself is well worth the visit. It's beautiful, tranquil and if you take your time and spend big portion of a day here, you'll see a lot. Also I'd recommend to take a guide first thing in the morning and then keep exploring yourself 👌 Next time I'm in Monteverde, I'm going again!
Well I'll start of saying the cloud forest was amazing. But my adventure is probably different then most. I found it by accident... yes by accident. We were on our way to do the zipping and repelling and THE SUPERMAN you'll see it posted everywhere. We rented a vehicle for our stay. After we did the zip lining and repelling. We decided we were going to continue down the dirt road to see how far it goes. So windy turn after steep canyons to little villages to climbing up windy roads of the mountains we finally came to a point in the road where it was so steep and filled with boulders are vehicle would not go any further. Along the way we noticed a sign for the cloud forest which to be honest we had never read about. A few hours back we had seen a sign for 4x4 or dirt bikes only. But it didn't look too bad at that point. Needless to say we got to see thing the average tourist doesnt. We stopped at the little villages talked to locals. We were taken to cocoa fields high in the mountains. It was superb. So 6 hours later we made it back to the little hotel where the superman zip lining was and the owner came over and asked if we had venture down this road. We responded by saying yes and started to laugh. The owner said word had got out that white people were seen many villages away in the mountains. He went on to say that people very rarely see white people let alone tourists.
The park is beautiful and the trails were great. You can find a trail that is right for your level. I imagined the park to be quiet different, more like the name implies. The bridge is rather short and not very high up. In any case, if you're in monteverde, the cloud forest is definitely a must see. You will see a bunch of different animals, hear all kind of birds singing and get to see the most beautiful views at the top of the mountain. We were walking pretty quickly and took us roughly 3 hours for the entire reserve.
This visit felt quite disappointing to be perfectly honest. Don't expect to see any animals. We saw one (a small rodent) and were told by a guide that we were very lucky. The paths are well marked and conditioned, but all you are going to see is trees. At it is not a cheap visit compared to may others in the country where you will see wildlife almost guaranteed.
