  • El Burrito hike. Mau was our guide. Very good hike and you meet a local farmer who lives on the hillside at the end for fruit and coffee. Great experience.
  • Great Dose of Nature and Wonder The Children's Eternal Rainforest is a great destination to get closer to the wonder of the cloud forest region of Monteverde and explore what nature has to offer there. I recommend a guided tour of the area for the most educational and enjoyable experience. It's also perfect for those who love hiking, nature and off the beaten track places!
