Things To Do At Monteverde Costa Rica
Let's help us explore Monteverde, and give us the chance to show you the best things to do here.
Curi Cancha is also known as a Bird Watchers Paradise because it offers easier trails to see and hear them! This is a smaller reserve compared to others in the area but offers a wide variety of nature and don't worry about the trails being crowded the reserve has a policy of a maximum of 50 people at one time at the park which makes it even more appealing, less people means higher changes to spot wildlife.Read More
The Curi Cancha Reserve is one of the newest known reserves of Costa Rica, its history is quite interesting since a great part of it today (about 50%), used to be pasture territory, the Lowther family who owned the property since the 1970’s invested their care and time into making it grow to the forest we can admire today and be part of the other 50% which was virgin forest and still remains.Read More

Hansel was amazing! He’s engaging, friendly, informative and an all around blast to spend the day with. This tour was the highlight of our 10 day trip and we will definitely be recommending this to our friends and family.
Jorge and Jonathan were the BEST! Jorge was so knowledgeable about the country, its history, and all of the wildlife we saw... he really gave me one of the best days I had on my entire vacation! I would highly recommend this full-day tour to anyone - it’s a lot of hiking and your legs will be sore but the views, the education, and the guides themselves are phenomenal and all the walking is SO worth it!
Fantastic experience, felt like family throughout. Far and above exceeded expectations. Friendly and incredibly knowledgable tour guides (much love to Julio and Hansel) and the lunch provided at their local restaurant was just what we needed. Great sense of humor too, can't beat that. Would recommend to any traveller, young or old.
Michael was amazing as was the whole tour!! Edgar was also amazing!!! Best tour I’ve ever been on, keep up the good work.
Our guide, Jorge, and driver, Minor, were awesome. Jorge went above and beyond to find a toucan for us because we told him we really wanted to see one. The tour was an honest-to-goodness full day (approx 9 hours), so definitely felt like we got our money's worth, and Jorge paced everything really well so we never felt rushed. Also the lunch was OUTSTANDING!
Edwin, Michael and Hansel were incredible! So much knowledge about Costa Rica enjoying the incredible wildlife and beauty floating the river and exploring the waterfall. The delicious snacks and lunch at the 2 locations were also a highlight! 5 star experience for our family (with 3 adult children) who usually love adventure but equally loved the float and waterfall! A MUST SEE!!
Julio has been our tour guide in the El Silencio Reserve Arenal, he's very good, providing lot of information on the flora, fauna and of course in the vulcanos in general and in particolar of the Arenal. We did not see many animals but we know: it is nature, we were happy for the 3hours (and more!) tour for what se have been able to see and learn. Pura vida.
Great tour and great way to see many parts around Arenal Volcano in one day !!
Our guide Julio was really good and knowledgeable. We had a great time visiting hanging bridges, volcano, waterfall and relaxing time at hot springs. Food was great and Julio was looking after us all day, making sure we are all ok. It was a small group which was great. We could all enjoy listening to our guide. I would highly recommend.
We enjoyed our trip and had a great time. The guide was incredible. He made sure we got to see the various type of animals he pointed out. He was fun and excited about what he was doing which made it fun and educational. I would recommend this tour to my friends.
The tour was better than envisioned. Our guide pointed out so many animals on our hike that would have gone completely unnoticed if he had not been there. And lunch was delicious...felt like they truly invited us over to their home for a typical Costa Rican meal made with love. The entire experience was amazing and memorable. I highly recommend.
From start to finish this tour was just incredible. Our tour guide Carlos met us at the hostel and explained how the day was planned out. We started with a tour along the river spotting wildlife, including white faced monkeys, howler monkeys, river otters, and many many birds. We then moved on La Fortuna waterfall and fortunate enough to have a swim. After lunch we hiked up to the Arenal volcano which was breaktaking. Along the way, Carlos was able to spot an abundance of wildlife and gave us the detailed history of the volcano and how it affected thrle nearby towns. Along the way he was able to answer all of our questions regarding everything, from the wildlife to the history of Costa Rica itself. I cannot praise him enough. He was fantastic. The end of the tour finished with relaxing in the hot springs. All food and water was provided and it really was a fantastic day.
Our guide Tony was super. He was very knowledgeable and patient with all of my questions. He showed us several animals, birds, and insects we would never have notice if it wasn't for his expertise.
Great services, all staff are very nice and professional. Will definitely choose rainforest explorers again.
This was a beautiful tour organised with extreme care, punctuality and friendliness. We had the chance to experience all sorts of sights in La fortuna in just 8-9 hours which is great for someone spending just a few days in the area. Our guide Carlos, was very thorough in his explanations and helped us spot every type of wildlife in the floating safari, the road and the waterfal as he was fully equipped. The food was great As it gave us a taste of the local delicacies, as was the overal experience. Albeit a bit pricey, we would fully reccomend this trip and our guide Carlos to anyone in La fortuna.
