It is a private reserve (access rate U$S 20) that receives a lot of public, although I did not find it over-exploited (I went in low season). The signage is perfect, it is not very big and I could walk all the trails without any...More

We hiked every trail in this Reserve available. It was about 6-7 miles: but you can do way less. We chose to circle back and do them all. A lot of the trails have a lot of steps in the ground and go upward a...More

Loved this two hour tour over eight bridge canopies high in the Cloud Forest. Remarkable experience! One of a kind! Worth visiting MonteVerde for....so many hummingbirds, butterflies, birds, fauna and flora. Beyond your imagination.

I would highly, highly recommend that anyone visit this reserve. We did the easy walk for a couple of hours, but even just with that spending time in the cloud forest was absolutely stunning. There are loads of options for waking tracks and the staff...More

I walked around for a few hours with a friend in the Reserve and it was very nice. We didn't see many animals apart from birds, but it was still very nice. Don't be surprised if the panoramas give you a beautiful view on... clouds...More

There are very well laid out trails through the forest. On the day I went there was a lot of low cloud, but only to be expected, which meant I was unable to see the Gulf of Nicoya but the view over the rain forest...More

We walked through the park for several hours, trying to spot various birds and learning about species we'd never seen before. The pathways were well kept and we just wore flip flops.

With our local guide Jorge and his trusty telescope we set off at 8.30am on our 2.5 hour walk through Monteverde's lush cloud forest. We listened and watched along the ascending trail to higher altitudes. We learned to notice small details and appreciate this unique...More

We went independently / without a tour, and it was a great option. We paid an entrance fee to the park directly and hiked on their trails through the forest. Got great views at the continental divide and saw plenty of birds & animals. The...More

He was next in the rotation of tour guides... basically luck of the draw. I cannot remember the amount, but I think it's on their website. It's a standard fee for any of the guides. The tour was about 3 hours, but it... More

You can be as aggressive as you want. I would hire a guide, you will see more. We used Tres Hermanos for all three days we were in the area, they are very good.
