Cloud forest blankets the tops of all of Costa Rica's highest mountains. These high forests are full of gnarled trees festooned with orchids, bromeliads and other epiphytes which thrive in the high humidity. Here you will see notable species of birds such as Black Guan and hummingbirds, among many others. This is a great opportunity that nature lovers shouldn't miss!
Day 01 Early morning transfer for a four-hour drive from San Jose to Monteverde (one hour of the drive is bumpy road). Check-in at Hotel Finca Valverde. Afternoon visit to the Monteverde Reserve for a moderate hike. (Lunch and dinner are not included.)
Day 02 Breakfast included. The first morning will have you walking on air-literally-with a visit to the sky walk. The walk is a system of suspension bridges that start at ground level, reaching into the canopy of the forest. It's a spectacular chance to see the forest from a completely different perspective. Return to the hotel for lunch (not included) and checkout. Transfer to San Jose via Sarchi, where you can wander through the picturesque streets and shop for the typical souveniers that have made this town famous. Drop off at your hotel in San Jose.
Note: Other hotels are available on request. Additional nights are available.
