The breathtaking Monteverde Cloud Forest Biological Reserve is an important ecotourism destination that attracts scientists, bird watchers, and wildlife lovers from all over the world. Inside the 10,522-hectare reserve, you can explore virgin cloud forest and centuries-old towering trees on well-kept trails. A notable site is the viewpoint that straddles the Continental Divide; from here on a clear day, you can see both the Caribbean and the Pacific coasts. The Monteverde Reserve is also one of the few remaining habitats in Costa Rica for the endangered Resplendent Quetzal, along with 420 species of orchids, 200 types of ferns, 400 kinds of birds, 100 mammals, and 1,200 different amphibians and reptiles. With its mist, trailing clouds and giant tree ferns creating a surreal environment, the Monteverde Reserve is considered to be among the most exceptional wildlife sanctuaries in the New World Tropics
