Guided Walks in the Cloud Forest - Natural History Tours
Monteverde Cloud Forest guided tours

Taking a hike in the Monteverde Cloud Forest Reserve or the Santa Elena Reserve is one of the most popular things to do in Monteverde. The Natural History Tours (guided walks) take between 3 and 4 hours in which you will be able to enjoy the enchantment of the flora and fauna of the forest. A semi-private guided tour (up to 8 people) costs US$15 per person with a minimum of 2 people plus the reserve entrance fee ($15.00 adult, $7.50 student/child). Or a private tour is $90.00 for up to 4 people. An experienced guide will take you along part of the 12 Km of trails that are in the cloud forest and will show you about the way animals and plants live in this kind of forest. We can set you up with a reservation with a guide or arrange for you to be part of a guided tour at the reserve. Also both reserves offer scheduled tours at either 7:30Am, 11:30Am or 1:00PM. You can stay in the reserve on your own until the closing time of 4:00Pm after your tour. Usually tours are done in the early morning in order to have a better chance to see the wildlife. We strongly suggest taking a tour with a guide in order to have a much better chance to view birds, animals and learn about the forest. It may be your best "investment" in Monteverde. Our recommendation is that you bring a light rain gear in nuetral colors (biege, gray, green) and a good idea is to use long pants and hiking shoes for this activity. Also bring binoculars if you have them.
