  • An amazing place to explore the beautiful nature. Very kind people who are delighted to share their knowledge. We made the trails by day and by night and saw monkeys, armadillos, bats, frogs...

  • The most amazing place and hosts on the planet! We found it totally by accident and destiny. On the way there we saw an agouti and got to Monteverde with no place to stay. After doing the coffee tour with Chris we mentioned this. He said they had a room for rent called the agouti room. We were treated like family and felt at home. I can’t recommend this magical and inspiring place enough! Chris has extreme coffee knowledge and local knowledge. We will be returning
  • In any other country I would be asking why am I paying $17 for a hiking trail. Unfortunately it's the norm for Costa Rica it took us just over 1 hour to do the longest (~2km) trail and see the water fall. Some great views and saw some butterflies. The most interesting one was the Glasswing butterfly which was a bonus.
