  • Just had a great experience here in Monteverde. My boyfriend and I went on a night time nature hike and had a such a good time. Felix and his nephew Andre took us on a very personal tour of their property by night. Felix was very knowledgeable and it was amazing what they could spot in the middle of the dark. They really made us feel welcome. Very peaceful and informative. Thank you so much ! We are coming to try your coffee tomorrow :-) Jeremy and Katerina
  • Really beautiful trail. I could walk alone for 2 hours and I saw many birds, some butterflies, also some wild mammals but not a single other human being. Some nice views included.
  • Even do it was affected by the rain and some of the trails are not possible to use, the ones that are currently available are gorgeous, the best one for me was the yellow one, I was able to see several animal while hiking, if you want to see animals please remember is not the time that it takes hiking, is the time that you take hearing.
  • Beautiful and quiet, not too much traffic so it's great for spotting wildlife. A nice mix of banana and coffee farm and native forest. The family who lives there are very kind and welcoming, and charged us about $15usd per person for admission.
  • Great 2 hour hike. But well off the beaten track. Paths need work. Both miradors are broken. But. Beautiful nature and we were alone in the park
