Tour the Monteverde cloudforest reserve that sits upon the continental divide and encompasses eight different life zones in its mountainous topography among the clouds. In its 35,000 plus acres (14,200 ha), there live over 100 species of mammals, over 400 species of birds, and 1,200 species of reptiles & amphibians. It’s one of the few places in the world that is home to six species of cats: jaguars, pumas, ocelots, oncillas, margays, and jaguarundis. Monteverde is ideal for birders and nature enthusiasts of all ages. Zip lining, or canopy climbing as it's called in Costa Rica, is an excellent way to explore the upper levels of the cloudforests of Monteverde or enjoy hiking through the cloud forest on the reserve's many trails.
