Zipline Monteverde

Zipline Monteverde

Monteverde is world famous for its unique cloud forest reserve and is also home to the beautiful quetzal. The area is popular for hiking and the amazing zipline of Monteverde! Fly through the treetops and explore the area from a whole different perspective! Keep in mind that you’re staying in the mountains (1400 m above sea level) and the evenings can be fresh. 

The town and community of Monteverde were founded in 1951 by the Quakers, a Protestant religious group from Alabama (USA). They started breeding dairy cows and make Costa Rica’s best cheese under the name Monteverde cheese. The Quakers have been great champions of nature conservation in Monteverde and nowadays the community strives to be the most sustainable in Costa Rica.

Cloud forest Monteverde

Cloud forest Monteverde

The cloud forest of Monteverde can be explored in various ways. You can enter the reserve on foot and go on a (guided) hike. You can also try the hanging bridges and experience the forest from beyond. The views are breathtaking and it is a perfect way to spot all kinds of animals. If you have more guts, book a canopy tour, the world-famous zipline of Monteverde, rent a quad to explore the area yourself or even go bungee jumping! The best place for the daredevils who are ready for some adrenaline!

Another great way to experience the cloud forest is to go on a twilight walk. In small groups (up to 10 people) you will go on a hike with an experienced guide who will show you what is going on in the rainforest after dark. If you’re lucky you’ll spot snakes and perhaps a porcupine!

In Monteverde we stayed at a nice location with a very spacious and beautiful house. Santa Elena is also a very nice village to explore.

During our stay we booked a tour including the hanging bridges, a very nice walk. In Santa Elena we visited Bat Jungle, a nice experience for  children. We can also recommend to have lunch or dinner in the great Tree House restaurant!

Monteverde: The road from Las Juntas was occasionally challenging because it was not always well-paved. The town of Santa Elena is pleasantly busy with many cafés and restaurants. We also visited the Monteverde National Park,  made a long walk and spotted many birds and an agouti! We also took a look at the unique dairy factory.

De Weerdt family

We really enjoyed our time at Valle Campanas and our contact with the owner. Monteverde’s surroundings are beautiful, but the village is too touristy for us. In any case our canopy tour was a great experience and very well organized.

Hakemulder family

Our drive up to Monteverde was a bit challenging at times and we arrived with a flat tire at our hotel. Fortunately, the owner of the hotel was kind enough to fix it for a small amount. Super service. We enjoyed our stay here in a very nice, spacious house. Our kids Luc and Tijmen did the canopy tour at Sky Trek and they liked it very much. Do keep in mind that the weather in Monteverde can be foggy and fresh (hence the cloud forest!).

Our stay in Monteverde was fine. The cottage was lovely and our hosts very hospitable people. We stayed for three nights and had a good time. We explored the forest via the suspension bridges, and went for a walk in the Children’s Eternal Forest Bajo el Tigre, a must with children.

Gerrit and Nienke

In Monteverde we had a nice small-scale accommodation and the owners provided us with lots of information and tips. The last part of our trip to Monteverde was especially beautiful because of the stunning mountain views. We booked the canopy tour and found it exhilarating! And yes, we also experienced the Tarzan swing!

Verloop family

It’s a beautiful ride to Monteverde! Also, our tip for a tasty lunch: Taco Taco, a little bit of hippie place and they make delicious tacos and  cocktails.
The zipline experience was fantastic and the hanging bridges are beautiful. We really were impressed by the beauty of the region.
