"The Monteverde area is the..." Monteverde Tip by jess13

Monteverde, Costa Rica: 4 reviews and 3 photos

The Monteverde area is the most well-known tourist destination in Costa Rica and while it has its attractions, the roads are horrible and non-pedestrian friendly (reminded me of washed-out rural roads in West Africa), the zip line and canopy tours are over-priced and we saw very little wildlife. The highlight was finally getting a glimpse of Vulcan Arenal during a timely break in the clouds from the observation tower in the Santa Elena Cloud Forest. So go anyway, but be forewarned.
