The Views.  The Unspoiled Forest.  And the Best Ziplines in Costa Rica


The perfect combination of natural beauty and interesting people. 

In the early 1950s a small group of Quaker dairy farmers from the US settled on the mountain. The Quakers, with their peaceful ways and respect for the environment, were a perfect match for the hard working, gentle Costa Ricans already living here. Since that time, several reserves have been founded where you can walk for hours in the splendor of the cloudforest. 

Many artists, researchers and educators either make their homes here or are frequent visitors. Several alternative schools, an institute for cloudforest education, a woman's arts cooperative, and a yearly concert series illustrate the cultural experience awaiting you here.

Numerous canopy adventures (both walkways and cables), an orchid garden, a butterfly farm, a rainforest tram, a frog zoo, a serpentarium and insectarium can also be found here. Due to the numerous activities, we recommend a minimum of three nights to experience as much as possible. 

You can enjoy the privacy and flexability of a Private Home near the Monteverde Reserve.  Maybe you want to relax at a Modern hotel that is within walking distance to the town center, or get closer to nature in the Middle of the Cloudforest only a short taxi ride from town. 

No matter what you choose, Monteverde is not going to disappoint!
