Monteverde

4.1
Monteverde is all about natural attractions, not surprising for an eco-tourism hotspot known for its cloud forests and rich diversity of animal life. Perched 1,440 m (4,662 ft) above sea level, the town of around 6,500 inhabitants enjoys a wet climate that endows the surrounding forest with enough water to create a lush canopy. Adventurous things to do in Monteverde include ziplining, canyoning, and exploring the jungle canopy on a renowned network of boardwalks. When using our Costa Rica trip planner, you're building your holiday based on your own interests, visitor reviews, and the informed opinions of our well-traveled writers.

Where to stay in Monteverde

Monteverde makes the most of its scenic natural surroundings, with an extensive choice of eco-accommodations offering an immersive natural experience. Most guests choose to stay outside of the town center to enjoy the rainforest surroundings in an eco-lodge or a family-owned ranch. Southeast, along the road to Monteverde Reserve, and north, near Don Juan Towns, you'll find some of the most popular areas to stay. If you do stay within the town center, you'll still enjoy easy access to the area's gardens and animal reserves.
