We spent about 2 and a half hours here. We hired a private guide and saw so much. The highlight was the sloth mother and baby. The walk was easy and pace was suited to our needs by the guide.

We hung out at the monte verde cloud forrest for about a day. This was not even enough. We did a 3h guided tour during which we saw a snake, monkeys and a mommy and baby sloth. The guide had very much knowledge about all bird species and others and could tell nice anecdotes. We had a guide for only... More

Very nice walking tour of the rain forest, but do not expect to be bolled over by exciting animals, etc.

This is a wonderful place to see a wide range of bird and animal species. Our group of 4 lucked out with Sergio who was able to locate and identify many unique bird species including male and female quetzals and toucanettes as well as others. We aren't birders but appreciate all type of flora and fauna. Highly recommend Sergio.

This review is specifically for Dennis who works at Monteverde Cloud Forest Reserve. We met Dennis at Raulito's on our first evening in Monteverde. He was amazingly helpful to us and spent a lot of time making suggestions to us and talking with us about Monteverde, and more specifically the cloud forest. Unfortunately, we tried to meet him the next... More

Naturalist Alexander from threebrothers.com led us through the cloud forest pointing out a sloth, quetzals, plants etc. This adventurer felt almost reverent. We were enveloped by the beauty of nature and noticing the extraordinary beauty and complexity of life in the cloud forest. This is a very special place and was our second time to the Monteverde Cloud Forest. We'll... More

What an enchanting place! The drive there was long and very bumpy, but well worth it! My teenage kids and I did an amazing zip-line experience complete with Tarzan rope swing and a Superman zip that was over 1000 meters! My less adventurous mother chose to do the hanging bridges instead and had a wonderful time with that. It was... More

It's a place that I believe everyone should visit. Even if the weather isn't cooperating or if you might not see much bird activity. It's nice to just be in the forest and get to breathe a different kind of air. I enjoyed it and definitely a must do. Roberto was our guide and he was awesome.
