Monteverde Travel Tips & Suggestions

Monteverde Cloud Forest is unique and is definitely worth visiting.
The night hike was great. We saw tarantulas, sloths, snakes, interesting insects, leaf cutter ant colony, and tree frogs. They provided the flashlights. Butterfly garden at Ronario was great too but be sure to use your ticket a second time to visit the garden without a guide, so you can take as many photos of beautiful butterflies as you want.

I would recommend going on a horse ride through Monte Verde. Ask your hotel about it they'll be able to hook you up, if not ask more people. Also walking through the cloud forest is really amazing, you don't need a guide but you might learn more if you have one.

There is an alternative taxi / boat / taxi shorcut to the grueling 8 hours ride between Monteverde Cloud Forest and the Arenal Volcano. See
