Home to a variety of plant and animal life, Reserva Bosque Nuboso Santa Elena represents a 310 hectare (766 acre) reserve covered by preserved cloud forest. Approximately 8 km (5 mi) of paths wind through the reserve, with several lookouts along the way. You'll find more than 600 species of orchids, as well as dense vegetation, hanging vines, and various tree species.

Wonderful park with friendly staff, nice trails and a magnificent vantage point tower. Our guide Jonathan was knowledgeable and skilled. Would recommend this to anyone interested in the cloud forest ecosystem.
Only saw a couple of animals but the walks are lovely & the viewpoint's one of the best I've come across.
