Adventure day in Monteverdes rainforest
During this day of adventures in Monteverde you get to choose to do four activities. You will get picked up at your hotel to go to the park Selvatura. First off is a walk to magical glade where we get to see more than 6 species of hummingbirds getting fed with nectar. The smallest hummingbirds are just an inch and the largest ones mounts up to 6 inches, all in beautiful colors flying around in the glade. In Montverde there are 14 species of hummingbirds.
We continue our adventure with a hike in to the exciting cloud rain forest where our guide will walk us through the forest and over impressive hanging bridges. Montverde has more than 2500 plant species (whereof 450 are orchids). If you are lucky you get to see the amazingly beautiful bird, the Quetzal, this is one of the few places left on earth where it still lives.
We will be served a energizing lunch before we visit the world’s largest living butterfly farm with a size of 2700m2. Depending on season the green house holds between 15 and 50 different species of butterflies and their pupae and cocoons. One of the species you get to see is the large and beautiful blue Morpho.
After the butterfly farm we get the grand finale, the famous canopy. The longest zip line here reaches 2500 feet at a breath-taking height of 260 feet up in the air. You put on a climber harness and get connected to the metal wires that stretch between the massive trees. Let the adventure begin as you speed between the 18 platforms and on the 15 cables up in the treetops. Everyone can enjoy this adventure, young as old (no physical limitis). This excursion can be done without the canopy as well.
