"Rainforest in the clouds = Cloud forest" Top 5 Page for this destination Monteverde by Helga67

Monteverde Travel Guide: 175 reviews and 441 photos

M O N T E V E R D E is located in the northern central part of Costa Rica and famous for its cloud forest. This part of Costa Rica is difficult to reach. Roads are very bad and will take you long to get there, but it is worth the effort. There is a good National Park: Reserva Biologica del Bosque Nuboso de Monteverde, a butterfly garden, Sky trek and Sky walk, hummingbird gardens and more.

    All the Monteverde pages are in the wrong place on VT. This Monteverde is on the Caribbean coast. You want the one in Puntarenas Monte Verde Travel Guide

    Our short one day was not enough to really enjoy the nature like you did. Your comments and pictures are very good.

    A new comment. After returning from Belize, I now more than before, need to get to Monte Verde. Maybe, for next year.

    I had never heard about the cloud forest. It was very interesting to learn it through your pages.

    Helga, your presentation of Monteverde was splendid. A cloud forest is quite fascinating. Spectacular photos to match your informative narrative. I especially loved the travelogues.
