There are plenty of reasons the region of Monteverde was named, ‘The Jewel in the Crown of Cloud Forests’, because of its fascinating butterfly and frog exhibit, glorious cloud forests and hummingbird gardens along the mountain roads.
On this excursion you will:
Relax in a less than 2 hour ride along winding mountain roads to visit an idyllic oasis and a major ecotourism destination Monteverde. The fascinating Frog and Butterfly Theme Park is a must-see for the entire family! You will have a short-guided stroll to the butterfly gardens where you can view small to large brilliant blue Morpho’s and learn about their importance in nature. Visit the Frog Pond to observe different species of toads and other amphibians, including the famous red-eyed frog, the colorfully poison dart frog and large marine toads which live in simulated and safe environments. Then take a quick bus ride to the enchanting Hummingbird Garden Café Colibrí. Here see free flying hummingbirds. Watch their antics as they flit about the plentiful feeders or hover in front of your face! You can sit on the patio and sip a cup of gourmet Monteverde coffee or a cappuccino, enjoy a delicious home-baked pastry and a snack sandwich as you view the hummingbirds up close. You might get lucky and photograph the tiny two-inch scintillant or the five-inch vividly colored Violet Sabrewing for a great photo-op! Visit the gift shop for a memory of your amazing day the Café Colibrí.
