Tranquilo! Amazing time for those who enjoy nature! Everything was so green and the rain made the day very serene. Also one time for Fernando Moss! Amazing tour guide!
Amazing tour with amazing tour guide!

The tour began with a pickup at our hotel. We then drove a nice route to the port of caldera and further on to a house where you could see monkeys. After this we had a quick lunch at a local Coffee plantation with an amazing view. Finally we went to visit the hanging bridges of Monteverde. Without Juan, our amazing tour guide, the experience wouldn’t have been as good. When booking your tour ask for Juan. Super nice, friendly and experienced.
Thank you very much!
Hanging Bridges!

A rainy rainforest day and it was perfect! Such an amazing experience being above the canopy and being immersed in nature.
Interesting and enjoyable

Juan was an excellent, careful driver and kind guide. While the trip was a lot of driving, it was worth it for those not renting a car on the difficult and pothole-riddled roads. The hanging bridge tour was 2 hours long (at Selvatura Adventure Park) and, while I would have preferred a more difficult hike, our second guide showed us some really interesting wildlife and was very knowledgeable.
