Monteverde is the cloud forest. Santa Elena is the town. 15 minute drive at best to some of the bigger parks, but there are smaller reserves with in walking distance.

It's probably only 1 km or so, but it's steep and the roads are in bad condition indeed. 15 min maximum drive, one of the closest lodges!

Being in Monteverde, you are already in the cloud forest. I assume then you mean the Montervede Biological Reserve Cloud Forest. If that is so, you are about 20 to 30 minutes depending on the car you drive since the road are pretty bumpy to get there. Be sure to go early in the morning because the reserve accepts a maximim capacity of visitors and closes after. We had to wait an hour to get in. Do not waist time at the first little house that says : Information Center. It's a false center to sell you private guide and you loose time. Go straight to the official center, big wooden building with restaurant at entrance. Plus, if you get there early, you will beat the crowd who is sometimes noisy and have better chance to see wildlife.

Please be very CAREFUL when driving. Roads are in bad shape, mountain roads, going up and down and winding , and most of the time are not paved. if during rainy season they become even worst! Otherwise you are literaly in the clouds! Beautiful adventourous driving. I was alone and that was a major adventure! People are more than kind, very friendly and welcoming. I had at 6 am a flat tire in the middle of nowhere on one of those bad roads on the top of a mountain. God send a motorcicle who stop and help me change my tire. OMG I was a bit scared l will be stuck in that wilderness. Again all the people are so friendly. Enjoy !
