WHAT TO DO:
Monteverde is one of the most beautiful parts of Costa Rica. Only three or four hours by car from San José, Monteverde is known as the "jewel in the crown of the cloud forest reserves". If you only have one weekend to spend in Montevede, try spending a full day at Selvatura Adventure Park. It is recommended to see the hummingbirds, walk the famous hanging bridges and then zip-line around the rainforest. Tip: tarzan and superman trips are optional, but you should definitely try them! The second day can be spent going to the Monteverde Cloud Forest Biological Reserve or exploring the center of Monteverde.
WHERE TO STAY:
This charming AirBnb is owned by a Costa Rican family: Carlos, Paula and their two children, Tiago and Daniel. Our host Carlos is friendly, patient and knowledgeable. The rooms are comfortable, but the shared common space is definitely the main attraction. What does not like stained glass windows, a beautiful garden and daily gourmet breakfasts?
