Full description

Take a guided walking tour through the rich biodiversity of the Monteverde Cloud Forest Biological Preserve as nocturnal mammals, birds, insects, reptiles and amphibians wake up for the night. Be picked up and dropped off at your doorstep in Santa Elena or Monteverde. 

Hop aboard an airconditioned coach and sit back and relax on the drive into the Cloud Forest. Find out for yourself how busy the forest can be at night as most animals are active in the evening and around 80 percent are nocturnal. 

Follow your guide through paths lined with lush vegetation. Spot critters that are not seen during the day on a 2-hour walk. Look for animals like raccoons, sloths, armadillos, olingos, and kinkajous that are active at night. 

Follow your guide on a magical journey through a beautiful forest as well as a sustainable coffee, banana, and sugar cane area. Return to your accommodation in Santa Elena or Monteverde by coach at the end of your tour.

It was a well guided night hike. The guide was easy to understand and he explained and showed us a lot about the animals, plants and trees that live there. We were a small group of 9 people and that was more than enough. I would book it again.
