What people are saying about Monteverde

If you read carefully beforehand you will get exactly what was described. Unfortunately, we approached the day with different expectations. We thought a guide would take us half the day through the Monteverde Cloud Forest. Transfer went great. When they got there everyone got stressed and everyone on the bus ran somewhere else. We knew nothing and went to the checkout. With our ticket we got an entrance to the hanging bridges (without a guide) and a ticket around the sloth sanctuary (with a guide) and the butterfly hall (with a guide). As described, just didn't read it carefully... But the guide was good. Price performance but in our opinion too high. Individually we would have gotten the tickets cheaper...

Sloth - impressive Mariposas - unforgettable suspense bridges - wonderful view price - double the normal :-(
