Monteverde Cloud Forest, Hanging Bridges and Butterflies Garden

Nature lovers will have a field day on this scenic Puntarenas tour around Costa Rica. You'll visit multiple natural wonders, including some of the country's top attractions. Book your tour now for an unforgettable adventure.

Your tour begins on the Pan-American Highway, the famous roadway known for its epic landscape views on a 2 hour drive to where you'll arrive at the first major site on this excursion: Monteverde. In its earlier days, the area was protected against tourists by the original Quakers. Since then, the site has become one of the most popular spots in the whole country. At Monteverde you will learn about the Costa Rican culture and stop at a wonderful viewpoint, great for photos.

The Cloud Forest is one of the main reasons. This spectacular ecosystem is home to an abundance of wildlife, including some fascinating rare birds. Take a walk on the Sky Walk Hanging Bridges and cross 6 bridges across the rainforest canopy, on trails that extend through the forest for a mile and a half. Around this time, you'll also stop for lunch. After you're done taking photos and admiring your surroundings, you'll continue to the local butterfly garden. Home to butterflies that thrive in all sorts of climates, the garden is one place you won't soon forget.

By the end of this educational tour, you'll head back to the ship with many new memories.

This was fabulous. We had an excellent guide. He met us as we got off the ship. He was extremely knowledgeable about the cloud forest as well as Costa Rica in general. We didn’t see the butterfly garden because unbeknownst to him the were closed for renovation. He tried to set it up with another butterfly garden but as we were the only couple in the group going to the garden we opted to join the rest of the group and go to the coffee plantation. We were not sorry. Despite the set back it was by far the best excursion of the trip and I would recommend geo tours to anyone.

Our tour guide did a great job and was very informative on all the local flora and fauna. The road was about as bad as one might find and had we known it was such a bad road we’d have taken a different tour. Monteverdi was awesome and Pablo knew his stuff.
