Cloud Forests in Monteverde, Costa Rica

Original photos from February 2012.

It’s been almost four years since we travelled to Costa Rica, so it’s difficult to recall much detail. However, what I do remember, is the long, winding, unpaved, uphill drive to Monteverde during the golden hour, and the cicadas singing through the valleys below.

As expected, the cloud forests were green and lush. Our guide was great, educating us about the flora and fauna that surrounded us, as well as the history of the forests and their diverse epiphytes. The night tour was just as fun — amazing insects, frogs, birds, and sleeping sloths!

Thank you to the Monteverde Village Lodge for a lovely stay.
