Days 4-5 Monteverde

Ecologists have suggested that the steamy Monteverde cloud forest was actually once two different ecosystems, straddling each side of the Continental Divide. As a result, the area boasts several unique species of flora and fauna. Explore the emerald-green cloud forest by foot to admire the wide array of wildlife and to learn how this incredible ecological curiosity came to be.
