Macaws in Monteverde

A travel blog entry by lynsey.nault


This place is really growing on me. First of all, it was nice to get away from the heat. It has consistently been 30 everywhere we have been thus far aside from the top of Cerro Chirripo. It is still beautiful and sunny during the day, but there is a constant breeze, which is a nice reprieve from the heat. At night it is cool and windy which makes …

Bungees, Ziplines and Giant Tree Swings

A travel blog entry by samlocke3


After getting the boat across Lake Arenal we took a jeep up to the picturesque highlands of Monteverde. On arrival at our hostel I absently flicked through the leaflets of attractions on offer in the area while AP was having a poo, only to come across one for a bungee... interesting. So of course quite excited by this prospect asked him if he would …

Tarantulas in the dark

A travel blog entry by samellietravels


On 10/10/10 we traveled from La Fortuna to Monteverde. First we took a minibus to the lake side, then a boat across the lake, then another minibus through the coffee plantations to the town of Monteverde which is situated in the center of a number of cloud forest reserves. After arriving and settling in to a hostel we booked to go on a night …

A travel blog entry by worldtrip_kp

Relax day in Santa Elena

A travel blog entry by worldtrip_kp


This morning I woke up around 9:30.. Slowly woke up and went for a run.. I did a 4 km run, it wasn't easy as expected ;) Also the altitude of 1440 meters (4662 ft) doesn't really help ;) But all good, slowly getting my fitness back.. One step at a time ;) It was a cool run, with an amazing view over the cloud forest, and budgies and parrots flying …

    I was ready to write this place off because of the lack of any sort of soundproofing. We are beside a busy road and I can hear everything. I can hear my neighbours conversations, I can even hear people rolling over at night. But the wind was a beautiful sound on the roof. The breakfast is awesome and Emil who works the front is so incredibly helpful.
