Monteverde

For most of the year, the humidity level in this tropical forest reaches 100 percent. With majestic trees festooned with orchids, bromeliads, ferns, vines, and mosses, it's home to a multitude of rare animal and plant species. Rising temperatures are expected to upset this fragile balance, with detrimental effects on the biodiversity that has flourished here for centuries.

The misty cloud forests of Monteverde are some of the most accessible cloud forests in the entire world. With dense canopy foliage and hundreds of epiphytes and lichen, these forests offer visitors some of the country's best hiking. Monteverde has action-packed activities, including zip line tours and horseback riding, as well as educational museums and species exhibits. Due to its varied elevations and diverse density of species, it is a major research site for international biologists.
