Tour operator’s description: Hike through the Santa Elena cloud forest reserve with an experienced nature guide who will point out the many different types of flora and fauna that live there! You will be high up in the Monteverde mountains and able to see breathtaking views of the surrounding lands. This is a great tour for nature lovers and adventure seekers! We like the Santa Elena Cloud Forest Reserve because it has a mixture of primary and secondary growth forest which often times means you can see more wildlife than in old growth forests. In addition, proceeds from the Santa Elena Cloud Forest Reserve go to support a local school in the Monteverde area. Both cloud forest reserves (Santa Elena and Monteverde) are great places to go hiking and have with well maintained trails. However, we have found the Santa Elena Cloud Forest Reserve to be less crowded than the official Monteverde Cloud Forest Reserve. This hike includes an experienced nature guide and a visit to the hummingbird gallery. Unfortunately we can’t guarantee seeing wildlife because the climate might affect visibility, but your eagle-eyed guide will likely find some interesting creatures hiding in the forest that you’d never expect to see on your own! Costa Rica birdwatching enthusiasts often flock to the Santa Elena Coud Forest Reserve. This is more than a Costa Rica rainforest — this is true Cloud Forest where the rain is horizontal instead of vertical!!
