It’s no secret that I love nature more than anything, so I was right in my zone when exploring Monteverde Cloud Forst, located in the highlands of Costa Rica. Monteverde Cloud Forest is one of the most famous cloud forests in the world, and for good reasons. The impressive tropical cloud forest has a rich ecosystem with over 100 species of mammals, 400 species of birds, 120 species of reptiles and over 3000 plant species. Everywhere you look is a vibrant shade of green and if you look hard enough you are guaranteed to see wildlife. Within the Monteverde Cloud Forest Reserve, you will find a hanging bridge and waterfall. Entry is $18 or $9 with a student card. We spent all day exploring the cloud forest before hitching a lift back into town. You definitely don’t need a tour guide, as some may say.
