Monteverde Wildlife Refuge, Monteverde

(150 reviews on the web)
Wildlife Area
Explore some of Costa Rica's most pristine cloud forest at Monteverde Wildlife Refuge. Birdwatchers head here to catch sight of plentiful exotic avian species including quetzal, bellbirds, and toucans. Other species such as olingos, raccoons, armadillos, and sloths also inhabit the area. At an elevation of 4,724 ft (1,440 m) above sea level, oxygen is more sparse; avoid overexertion and bring plenty of water. Buy a poncho from the gift shop to protect from the wetness of the forest. Choose to start, finish, or center your holiday on a trip to Monteverde Wildlife Refuge by using our Monteverde itinerary maker.
