The Monteverde is home to the cloud forests and coffee plantations and host to monkeys and sloths among its 100 species of mammals and 400 species of birds, thousands up thousands of insects and more than 2,500 types of plants. Orchids grown in their abundance here, with over 420 species. Sitting on top of Costa Rica's continental divide, Monteverde looks down on the towns running along the country's shoreline. The constant cloud coverage is due to it's high altitude at 1,440 metres above sea level causing a high level of moisture. The fog created by this moisture, catches on the tall trees and drops down on to the flora and fauna below. Spend a few days exploring this fastinating ecosystem, with it's verdant, mountainous landscape. This can be done walking one of the trails taking a trams or a tree canopy tour.
