Getting there is the first adventure. The roads are a travesty, the highways have gotten better, but there are many miles left that will make you reach for the safety handles. You can be sure of one thing, it’s worth it, Monteverde is a place to be discovered and enjoyed.
There are plenty of forests, jungles, but there are very few cloud forests. It is not just the natural setting or the culinary variety that satisfies every taste, it is also the fact that it offers some of the highest bungees and some of the longest canopy tour. It will delight you, take your breath away and make you scream.
The clouds creep up on to the mountains, you can see them moving, slowly and steadily as they rise or descend between the mountains of thick lush green. Imagine yourself, entering one of these clouds at fast speeds while hanging from a metal wire; it feels like heaven.
For birdwatchers, it is paradise. Chase Bellbirds and Quetzals from hanging bridges that traverse the canopy of Selvatura, a place you will surely remember and probably dream about.
