Night Tour in Monteverde
Join our Specialized Naturalist Guides in a Nature Quest.
A journey that will take you into the Cloud Forest right after the sun sets in the horizon, and the darkness reveals the magical world few human eyes have ever witnessed.
Every day at 6:00 p. m. and for approximately two hours you may experience the magical transformation that occurs within the heart of one of the most biodiversed forests in the world at Ficus Trails.
At this time in the forest the protagonists are the animals that live in this habitat, where you can see some birds sleeping, as well as the nightlife of animals like some mammals that go out to eat at this time.
Transportation, flashlights and Bilingual Naturalist Guides are always available.
Closed shoes, light poncho, long pants, jacket and camera are highly recommended.

This tour was very enjoyable. I think I was expecting more frogs than we saw, but we did see lots of very cool things--frogs, bugs, birds, Kinkajous. No snakes on our visit, but they were definitely around, and the guide was very diligent and careful to protect our group and make sure we were aware of the potential dangers. Definitely a good value! It's very hard to take good photos at night. If you really care about this, spend plenty of time practicing at home before you go. The guide has a lot to show you and a set schedule. He tried to be very accommodating, but you can't spend too much time trying to get the perfect photo.
The tour was great! The guide was very personable and knowledgeable and made a real effort to find the animals we were most curious about.
We had a good time on this tour and got to see a couple of animals however, I think the quality of experience may be contingent on the guide you get. Our guide was nice and knowledgeable, but was only filling in for someone else that night, so it seemed like it could have been better. Overall it was fun though.
