Discover a piece of Costa Rican cloud forest at Curi Cancha Reserve. The 96 hectare (237 acre)wildlife refuge was established as a nature reserve in 1997 and serves as a scenic spot for hiking and bird-watching. Take a guided tour or set off on the trails by yourself, exploring the primary cloud forest that's sprawled with pieces of open space that make it easier to spot native animals. Roaming the trails, you might see toucans, resplendent quetzals, sloths, anteaters, howler monkeys, or capuchins.
