The reserve covers an area of 10,500 hectares of land and maintains six different life zones. The climate and the terrain of the reservation produce an incredible bio-diversity.

What you can see:

There are at least 400 species of birds in the highest part of the rain forest, which includes the resplendent Quetzal, formerly the sacred bird of the Mayans, more than 100 species of mammals, 120 species of amphibians and reptiles, and approximately 2,500 species of plants, which make Monteverde a true paradise for bird lovers. The reserve has wet and dry seasons, although the higher parts have fog and it rains a lot during the year.

A new and spectacular way to see the forests in the heights, without doing much physical effort is the "Skywalk" (Walk through the sky), which is done by a series of trails connected with suspended bridges to more than 130 feet, allowing really spectacular views of the forest.

Your tour will conclude with the pleasure of enjoying a delicious cup of coffee and chocolate while you admire the beautiful view of the Nicoya Gulf.

This is a unique experience for all coffee and chocolate lovers.

Why is Costa Rican coffee the best coffee in the world?

Our coffee is grown in fertile soils of volcanic origin and low acidity which are ideal conditions for its production. More than 80% of the coffee area is located between 800 to 1,600 meters of altitude and at temperatures between 17º and 28º C., with annual rainfall between 2,000 and 3,000 millimeters.

The advanced technology used by the Costa Rican coffee producers for more than 200 years has allowed them to adjust the plantations to the characteristics of each region. Today the Costa Rican Coffee is grown in 8 producing areas including Monteverde, one of the most important ones.

1720 is the approximate date of the introduction of coffee to America, which was when the first typical variety of Arabic coffee seeds reached the island of Martinique, Antilles, the seeds were later sown in Costa Rica at the end of the 18th century. Costa Rica was the first Central American country to establish this flourishing industry.

The tour will continue through the coffee plantation accompanied by your English guide.
You will learn about coffee and chocolate processing and production, from the cultivation and harvesting to the preparation of the final coffee and chocolate product.

The drying practice seeks to reduce the water in the coffee and chocolate product, it´s previously washed and drained in a natural or mechanical way. The coffee and chocolate must be in a commercially adequate point, which meets the characteristics to store it and sell it later.

The drying mechanism of coffee and chocolate is more complicated than that of any other grain, because after washing them they contain moisture which can lead to the coffee and chocolate losing some of it´s flavor and aroma.

Your tour will conclude with the pleasure of enjoying a delicious cup of coffee and chocolate while you admire the beautiful view of the Nicoya Gulf.

Originally, the only way one could view the falls was by literally hanging over the side of the mountain, looking through trees and ferns, not very inviting for picture taking. With the construction of Waterfall Gardens, guests are afforded views from platforms above, below and in front of the falls for great waterfall photo opportunities. The park has the closest waterfalls to San José and Poás Volcano. The La Paz Waterfall is the most famous waterfall in Costa Rica where visitors often stop on the road to take photos on their way to Sarapiquí or Arenal but the best waterfalls are actually above the La Paz waterfall along a steep canyon accessed by our safe hiking trails making these five waterfalls the most easily accessible waterfalls in Costa Rica.

About 11 km north of the Poas volcano, at the base of the Congo volcano, there are three beautiful lagoons.

The entire area that includes the lagoons and its exuberant vegetation is called Bosque Alegre. The largest of these lagoons is the Hule lagoon, which has a dimension of 1150 mt. (54.7 ha and 26.5 m depth), the Congo Lagoon (14.6 m deep and an area of 15 ha) and a much smaller one without a name.  

The Hule lagoon is, perhaps, one of the most beautiful in the country and the wildlife refuge where one of the places of high tourist potential is located, both for its scenic beauty and for the abundance and biological diversity present in the forest. that surrounds it. The tourist who arrives for the first time at the viewpoint, when the sun shines, is stunned by so much beauty gathered in a sector still unknown to most Costa Ricans.  

Its shallow shores have favored the development of large numbers of aquatic macrophytes and in its waters abound the guapotes. In the surroundings are common armadillos, the capuchin and the congos, the otters in certain nearby rivers and at least 170 species of birds (25% of the total identified in Costa Rica). The odd wild duck usually breaks the monotomy of silence in its fleeting flight and of sonorous fluttering. Other species representative of the area are butterflies and bats, of which 60 and 24 species have been identified, respectively. Given the congenital beauty of this unique volcanic landscape, today it constitutes a protected area called Bosque Alegre Wildlife National Wildlife Refuge.
