Monteverde Hike & Coffee Trip
The tropical cloud forest is one of the rarest and richest ecosystems in the world and only occur on the higher elevations along the continental divide where humidity level is almost constantly above 90%, resulting in extremely lush vegetation and lots of wildlife to be discovered.
We will take a comprehensive guided tour of the Cloud Forest reserve and learn about its ecology and spot some of its famous inhabitants, like hummingbirds, trogons, threewattled bellbirds, resplendent quetzal (hopefully) and often also whitenosed coatis and monkeys.
No forest in the world compares to the dense vegetation of this environment and its often endemic animal species.
Next we will have a costarican lunch “Casado” in a typical sodarestaurant (small/local and delicious) which includes rice, beans, salad, plantains, vegetable stew and a protein option (beef/chicken/fish/pork) and get ready for another experince that Costa Rica is famous for… A tour of a real coffee plantation where we will learn about the whole process and lots of its secrets which will make you enjoy your coffee even more in the future! We will also learn about cocoa (chocolate) and the artesian processing of sugar cane!
In every part of this tour you will get your hands on and of course you get to try of every bit! A perfect combination of experiencing the cloud forest and learning about some of the most important tropical goods!
