We stayed here a couple days to hike in Monteverde and loved our visit. Our room was a second floor balcony which I recommend for the views. It was so relaxing having a glass of wine sitting next to the big open fireplace. The setting...More

Mosquitoes are normally not a problem in Monteverde, but that doesn't mean that you won't see bugs. For mosquitoes, the best advice is to be prepared, wear long pants and sleeves and apply buy spray twice a day... More
Mosquitoes are normally not a problem in Monteverde, but that doesn't mean that you won't see bugs. For mosquitoes, the best advice is to be prepared, wear long pants and sleeves and apply buy spray twice a day. You will likely find that you don't need these precautions, but it's best to be prepared.
I hope this helps.

If you're looking for hike, Curri-Cancha by itself may too short, the trail is about 2 miles. There is the possibility of combining the Monteverde Reserve and Curri-Cancha which adds another 3 miles to your hike and gives you the opportunity to hike in slightly different habitats. We offer it with a Naturalist Guide and a box lunch from Monteverde Lodge & Gardens.
