Night Wildlife Tour

Monteverde is well known for Guided Night Tours…

These are light walks in the primary and secondary cloud forest with nothing but a flashlight and a Naturalist Guide leading the group… Usually consisting of 1.5 to 2 hours.

The cloud forest is very active at night.

In fact, 80% of the animals and insects of the cloud forest are active after the sunset.

Coatis and agoutis are commonly sighted, as are monkeys, porcupines, and other animals.

However, with nature, there is never a guarantee so no one knows what will show up (or not show up)…

Either way, being so close to nature in such aa amazing environment (all dark and filled with the sounds of crickets, and other insects surrounding you) is a great experience on its own…

At Hotel El Bosque, we have our own Night Tour (El Bosque Night Tour) which takes place from 5:45 pm to 7:45 pm. Very convenient as you will end with enough time to go back to your room and get ready for dinner (which you can have in our Italian Restaurant or down in Santa Elena).


The price of the tour is $25 cash per adult and $18 per kid.
