Monteverde is famous for its two not for profit Cloud Forest Reserves offering more than 24 km of well maintained trails: the Monteverde Preserve and Santa Elena Cloud Forest Reserve but the growing numbers of visitors stimulated the imagination of local eco-entrepreneurs and there is now several interesting secondary activities like various Canopy Tours, Butterfly Garden, Frog Pond, etc. to choose from for an extended stay.
The area is easily accessible thanks to taxi / boat / taxi shortcuts from the Arenal Volcano and several daily shuttles, private transfer, public buses and lodging possibilities from backpacker’s dream to plush Honeymoon Suites overlooking the surrounding forest covered mountains & the Gulf of Nicoya on the Pacific slope.
