Monteverde is a small town in the mountain ranges of Costa Rica and a major destination for ecotourism in the country. About 3 hours from San Jose, it is one of our top recommended destinations in Costa Rica. Monteverde is the best place to experiencea cloud forest. Cloud forests were given their name because you will see a thin veil of clouds just below the canopy. The clouds eventuallydissipate into water on the leaves and drip down, watering the plants below.
