Things to do in Monteverde Cloud Forest Reservea - Costa Rica

Perched atop some of the Central America’s highest mountains is the otherworldly landscape of the Monteverde Cloud Forest Reserve. If the name makes the reserve sound dreamlike that is because it is – with near one hundred percent humidity year round and a constant cloak of mist the forest is one of the world’s most magical landscapes. The park is well-known for its treetop walking routes that allow for aerial views over the astoundingly verdant landscape, where plants grow in layers atop one another, green moss blankets everything in sight and the sounds of hundreds of species of bird echo from the enveloping fog. What is more, the park’s relative isolation makes it a true hidden gem with a fraction of the visitors received by Costa Rica’s coastal national parks.
