On this tour we will take you from your hotel in the Jaco Beach – Los Suenos area to the Monteverde Cloud Forest Region, one of the main destinations of Costa Rica. On the way to Monteverde we will be driving next to the lush Carara National Park, and we will be making a few stops for you to explore and admire some of the wonders of our tropical country. The first stop we make is at the Tarcoles River, where you may have the chance to observe many crocodiles from a safe viewing point (high above on a bridge), because this river is home to one of the largest crocodile populations in the world. We also stop in a place where we normally see lots of white faced capuchin monkeys; in a fruit stand for you to learn about our delicious tropical fruits; and we also make some other spontaneous stops to take pictures and learn a little bit about our culture. Once in Monteverde, we would take you to have a delicious lunch at the typical town of Santa Elena; and then to do the Monteverde Hanging Bridges tour, where your naturalist guide will show you this amazing and rare eco-system, as well as its large hummingbird’s gallery, the absolutely best place in Costa Rica to observe several species of these birds. At the end of the 2-3 hour Monteverde Hanging Bridges tour, we would head back to the Central Pacific Region and drop you off at your hotel.
