After breakfast, enjoy the drive around the northern shore of Lake Arenal via Tilarán to the cloud forest region of Monteverde (approx. 3 hrs.) You will spend the night at Arco Iris Lodge, a very personally run hotel with rustic, lovingly furnished cabinas in a beautiful garden. The rest of the afternoon you can relax in a shady spot in the garden or take a stroll through the village of Sta. Elena. Optionally, in the evening you can take a night coffee tour at Finca Don Juan, which combines the tradition of coffee with the nighttime activities of Montverde’s wildlife in a natural setting (about US$40 per person, advance reservations recommended). The tour starts at 6pm, just when nocturnal animals come out of their hiding places. At the Don Juan Farm, right next to a river that is home to numerous frogs and toads, you can first discover the colorful little animals and listen to their songs. You may also get lucky and spot nocturnal mammals and birds, or see some diurnal species sleeping peacefully in the branches. In addition to the amazing nocturnal life, visitors will also learn more about the coffee bean, and how it is transformed into coffee through a special process. Overnight Arco Iris Lodge
In the morning you will take a walk through the sky in the private nature reserve “Selvatura” in the heart of the Monteverde cloud forest region. The forest stand is largely almost untouched mountain cloud forest, characterized by dense bromeliad and moss growth on the trees. Hundreds of bird species as well as numerous mammals are native to the area. A system of 8 safe and stable suspension bridges up to 160 meters high allows visitors to view the treetops and wildlife of this natural paradise. The individual suspension bridges are connected by well-maintained, level hiking trails. Return to San José around noon, arriving in the late afternoon and dropping off the rental car at the hotel.
