"Cloud forest" Top 5 Page for this destination Monteverde Area Tip by Helga67

Monteverde Area, Costa Rica: 14 reviews and 13 photos

by Helga67

Favorite thing: Cloud forests are found at an altitude of at least 1500 m. The forest is shrouded in mist for 9 months of the year. The mist and clouds come with the trade winds of the Pacific Ocean. The vegetation is somewhat different from the rest of the rain forest. Here you will find plants that grow well in this colder and more humid environment like moss and fern.
