Trip Planner: Central America / Costa Rica / Province of Puntarenas / Monteverde / Santa Elena / Monteverde Wildlife Refuge

Birdwatchers head here to catch sight of plentiful exotic avian species including quetzal, bellbirds, and toucans. Other species such as olingos, raccoons, armadillos, and sloths also inhabit the area. At an elevation of 4,724 ft (1,440 m) above sea level, oxygen is more sparse; avoid overexertion and bring plenty of water. Buy a poncho from the gift shop to protect from the wetness of the forest.
