Santa Elena Cloud Forest

Santa Elena Cloud Forest is near Monteverde and has similar biodiversity, but is slightly smaller and less visited which may well be your preference if you like things less developed.

It was one of the country's first ever community managed reserves with profits from entrance fees going directly to help the local community - we like that!

Walking trails lead you through the rich vegetation and past hanging vines. Small mammals, birds and insects abound and this is one of the best places in the country to see and hear howler monkeys. And there are great views of Arenal volcano.
