FREE Guided Jungle Night-time Nature Walk in the iconic Monteverde Cloud Forest when you book through timeoutdoors:
As the sun sets, the forest comes alive with sounds and tours set out in small intimate groups with a maximum of 8 people. Everyone is supplied with a flashlight to help you find your way through the winding forest trails. Make your way over tree roots, upstairs, and across the rocky terrain and use your flashlight to explore and look for insects and mammals. The night tours are a fun way of learning about the nocturnal life of the forests. Depending on the season you may see sleeping birds such as the famous quetzals, toucans, bellbirds and visiting migratory birds. Frequently observed are the cute kinkajous and other mammals such as sloths, olingos and monkeys, a well as snakes (including rare tree snakes), tarantulas, frogs, amazing insects and grey foxes.
