Day 3
Monteverde

The community of Santa Elena borders the Monteverde Conservation area in the Tilaran Mountain Range. Within this region of pristine cloud forest, 310 hectares (765 acres) have been permanently leased by the administration of the Santa Elena community High School. The original vision was to use this land for agricultural research and education in Monteverde. For a variety of reasons, however, the farming proved to be unsuccessful. In 1989, it was decided to convert the land into a cloud forest reserve. Together with Youth Challenge International, a Canadian based non-profit organization, the community established an eco-tourism reserve, which officially opened on March 1, 1992. The reserve was created out of a community's determination to help preserve the unique cloud forest surrounding them and to use tourism as a tool to benefit community development in Monteverde.

Entrance fees are used for the protection and management of the reserve as well as to provide higher quality education for the schools in Monteverde. The Santa Elena Cloud Forest Reserve is one of the first community administered reserves in the country (not a national park, but is under the protection of the Arenal Conservation Area). It is an excellent example of what people can do to preserve and learn from their local environment. The tour is essentially a natural history walk in which you will learn about the incredible diverse flora and fauna and the unique relationships many cloud forest species have with each other. This walk normally takes about 3 hours. The tour starts at the entrance of the park.

Guides are equipped with a spotting telescope as well as binoculars and informational guidebooks. Be sure to bring your camera because you can take pictures through the scope. What to Bring: Comfortable clothing, hiking shoes, insect repellent, camera, water, raincoat.

Costa Rica offers tropical beaches, the grandest adventures, the wonders of nature, and scintillating culture. Located in Central America, Costa Rica is nestled between Nicaragua and Panama, bordered on the east by the Caribbean Sea and the west by the Pacific Ocean. This small country represents only .05 percent of the planet's surface yet shelters almost 5 percent of the existing world's biodiversity. The country also offers world-class eco-tourism and adventure travel such as horseback riding on a secluded beach; hiking through the lush whispering greenery of a rainforest; having an exhilarating experience on a white-water rafting trip, observing the tropical forests from a canopy tour; surfing the blue waves of either coast; experiencing a quiet, close encounter with different species of birds and wildlife; and enjoying the diverse culture and hospitality of the Ticos.

Monteverde Lodge & Gardens

This is a simple and elegant destination that allows you to experience the beautiful rainforest. The food is what a Costa Rican grandmother would cook if she was also a creative and contemporary professional chef. The atmosphere in the lodge is quiet and tranquil with an open fireplace. No background music.
