"You must visit a rain forest..." Monteverde Cloud Forest Tip by whitneyone

Monteverde Cloud Forest, Costa Rica: 36 reviews and 49 photos

You must visit a rain forest or cloud forest, but BE PREPARED FOR RAIN! No matter how warm it is on the coast, chances are there will be rain up top. I believe we went to Monte Verde and were caught in an absolout monsoon. Our car actually was partially swept off the road and into a ditch. The locals came out to help us and we had to FORCE money into their hands...they were so incredibly helpful and kind.

Stop at the roadside cabanas for snacks and drinks on the way up or down...amazing views and hospitality.

Review Helpfulness: 1.5 out of 5 stars
