Where I stayed
Monteverde is a tiny town set amongst Costa Rica´s best cloud forest, it is a great place to trek through the jungle and see loads of wildlife!
For our first night in Monteverde we decided to do a night trek through the jungle as this is a great way to spot some of the shyer critters that call this jungle home.
Our first sighting was a huge tarantula and that was quickly followed by a bird called a mot-mot which is so stupid that you can pretty much walk up to it and pick it out of the tree. We were also treated to an amazing light show courtesy of the hundreds of Fireflies. We were also on a hunt for monkey, listening out for their calls but it must have been past their bed time as we heard nothing.
The next day there was a huge storm so sadly we didnt get to do much, we did make a quick dash to the serpentarium to look at the snakes which was prettty cool though.
