Monteverde is all about natural attractions, not surprising for an eco-tourism hotspot known for its cloud forests and rich diversity of animal life. Perched 1,440 m (4,662 ft) above sea level, the town of around 6,500 inhabitants enjoys a wet climate that endows the surrounding forest with enough water to create a lush canopy. Adventurous things to do in Monteverde include ziplining, canyoning, and exploring the jungle canopy on a renowned network of boardwalks. When using our Costa Rica trip planner, you're building your holiday based on your own interests, visitor reviews, and the informed opinions of our well-traveled writers.
