Monteverde is all about natural attractions, not surprising for an eco-tourism hotspot known for its cloud forests and rich diversity of animal life.
Step off the beaten path and head to Ecological Sanctuary and Up in the Cloud Forest. Step out of the city life by going to San Luis Waterfall and Valle Escondido Preserve. And it doesn't end there: squeeze the most out of the city with Pasion Costa Rica, look for all kinds of wild species at Curi Cancha Reserve, look for gifts at Souvenir Rosewood, and admire nature's wide array of creatures at The Bat Jungle.

For maps, where to stay, other places to visit, and tourist information, refer to the Monteverde day trip site .

Boston, USA to Monteverde is an approximately 11.5-hour combination of bus, flight, and shuttle. You can also do a combination of train, flight, and shuttle; or drive. You'll gain 1 hour traveling from Boston to Monteverde due to the time zone difference. Cap off your sightseeing on the 17th (Tue) early enough to travel to El Castillo.
