Located high above the mountain range dividing Costa Rica between the Pacific and Caribbean slopes, this small region between the Arenal Volcano and the Pacific Coast persuades you to leave the hotter and humid climates of the flatland.

Monteverde was, and still is, a farm land. However, it also embraces two natural reserves and the largest private reserve in the country. Traveling along the bumpy dirt roads and forest trails you will encounter a distinctive ecosystem filled with orchids, moss covered trees, fog and a cooler temperatures.

Although Monteverde is very much still countrified, it is also one of the country’s most touristic developed regions. There is a handful selection of restaurants and cafeterias, as well as nature, adventure, and cultural tours.
