Mountain lodges, waterfalls, hiking
If hot weather and the beaches aren't quite your thing or if you want to mix it up, a trip to Monteverde is a must. The bird watching is incredible and you'll enjoy the unique and cooler cloud forest environment. Our guests enjoy a relaxing time at the unique eco lodges – often bird watching right from their balcony while sipping on a cup of locally grown Costa Rican coffee. Hikers and naturalists will want to stay forever, knowing they have found paradise.
Monteverde is best accessed from San Jose International Airport (SJO) and can be combined with a trip to Arenal and La Fortuna or mixed in with a beach vacation if you have a bit more time. We encourage our guests to relax and really relish they area they've picked to vacation in and are advocates of a more leisurely travel pace
