Monteverde Cloud Forest OR Samara - Nosara - Islita
The rare phenomenon where climatic conditions cause cloud and mist to be in regular contact with the vegetation is called a cloud forest. Few exist in the world, and Monteverde is one of the few destinations where cloud forests are easily accessible. This magical environment enchants visitors, enticing them to fall in love with nature.
Spending two or three nights in Monteverde is a memorable part of a Costa Rican vacation. Nature lovers visit this secluded part of the country in search of exciting trails in the Cloud Forest, adventurous canopy rides, and relaxing evenings in the cool, crisp climate.
The wide crescent bay of Playa Carrillo looks like it belongs on our Caribbean side, with its white-sand beach lined by coconut palms and clear, turquoise waters. Rocky headlands protect the bay of Carrillo on both sides so that the water is calm and well suited swimming and snorkelling.
