  Entrance of the Hidden Valley Nature Trail

Monteverde / Santa Elena

This was amazing! They take us at sunset in a little trail to look at the other side of the forest, the night version. We got to see a lot of wildlife: agouti (kind of a big guinee pig), olingo (big furet, in the racoon family), sleeping hummingbird, butterfly, wren, ovenbird and long tail manakin, a tarentula, frogs, army ants, leaf-cutting ants, stick bug and all kind of other bugs.

I was afraid it could be creepy, but it wasn't at all. And we got the best guide ever. He knew everything, had something interesting and new to say about everything and was so passionate!

Then lended us a flashlight each and started to use it after about 30 minutes, when the sun sets. We paid 15$ each (including the guide), plus 2$ for the shuttle. Really, this trip was amazing!
