What people are saying about Monteverde

I loved walking on the hanging bridges were awesome. The scenery is amazing. I enjoyed the hike through the forest looking for different animals. Definitely a trip for nature lovers!

Donald was very knowledgeable and I really appreciated the level of detail he was able to provide on Costa Rica ecological life. Fun, eventful tour with good company.

Our guide had a very good knowledge and taught us a lot. If I had booked the tour through the hotel I would have paid quite a bit less which frustrated me a bit.

The other group in our party canceled, so we got a private tour with Jorge. He was amazing!

Did the complete package. Walk,tram, and zip lines. Worth every penny
