Customer Travel Tip: Make sure you check the weather before you go! Rain is fine because that's the whole point of being in a cloud rainforest but if it's too windy he parks will be closed.

Liked: Beautiful scenery, lots of activities to do.

Disliked: Not many cheap or free activities, do recommend climbing he ficus tree for free. If too windy the park is closed and it is hard to see wildlife.

As a family with children

Trip Type:
Backpacking / gap year Family Holiday Sightseeing & culture Sports, adventure or outdoor activities

Customer Travel Tip: The nights were a little cool so one should be prepared to bring a light jacket and a few warm clothes. If you are renting a car, make you you have very good insurance coverage (buy the all inclusive package from the car rental company) as the gravel roads are unreal, huge potholes and slow driving.

Liked: It was very beautiful scenery, a quiet place yet provides many activities to do if you like to go on tours.

Disliked: The gravel roads leading to Monteverde were tough to drive.
