Private Monteverde Cloud Forest Walk
Hiking Monteverde with a private guide means you can go where you want, when you want—and get undivided attention from your guide along the way. As you hike, your guide helps you spot wildlife like birds, sloths, and monkeys that you might miss on your own and provides tons of information about the local ecosystem. This tour can also be adapted for wheelchair users, making it a great choice for any group.
What to Expect
You'll be picked up by a driver or your actual tour guide.  The duration to the trail is about 5-15 minute each way, depending on where you're staying and which trail you choose.

The trail choices are: Monteverde Reserve, Curi Cancha Reserve, Santa Elena Reserve, Aguit Reserve, or SkyWalk bridges.  Before your tour, you can use bathrooms and fill up a water bottle.  You'll then begin your naturalist walk which is slow, leisurely-paced stroll in the forest where you'll stop frequently to listen, look for birds and wildlife, and learn about the forest from your private guide.  You might encounter a quetzal, a bellbird, and maybe even monkeys.  But remember - wildlife is never guaranteed! 

Remember - this is a "walk," not a "hike."  You'll cover perhaps anywhere from 1/2 a mile to 1 mile, give or take, over about 3hr.  The trails are well maintained and accessible for most people.  There is one trail in the area that is wheelchair accessible (please inquire).  Closed toed shoes are most appropriate.

When finished, your driver can drop you at your hotel, or perhaps a lunch place of your choosing, if on the way.  You can also do this tour in the afternoon (afternoon tours best from Feb-May).
