What you'll do

I'll pick you up at your rental (or hotel) for your 7:30am tour. At that time, we can discuss which trail you'd like to visit. You can pay the entrance fees directly at that trail, and off we go! The walk is leisurely and slow-paced (not a "hike" per say). It is doable for all ages and most levels of fitness, as it is non-strenuous. We spend about 3hr learning, listening, observing, and exchanging conversation. The goal is to increase your knowledge and appreciation of the cloud forests and other forests in the Monteverde area. If we see wildlife, then great! But you never know, and we can't guarantee. Still, you'll be in great hands. After the tour we'll drop you off back at your hotel/rental. Join us!

Thank you for reading! I have two decades of experience in guiding natural history tours in the Monteverde and surrounding areas. I look forward to helping you maximize your time here by personalizing your Air BnB Experience. This is why I guide at all of the trails in the area (I don't exclude any trails/areas!). I am originally from a farm outside Monteverde and am passionate about bridging the old with the new, such as older farm concepts, practices and beliefs with new, important topics like conservation, reforestation, and climate change. This firsthand knowledge of traditional Costa Rica helps me transmit valuable information during our tour of the beautiful forests of the area.

This was a great experience. Marcos is both very knowledgeable and is able to convey his knowledge in a way that makes the forest come alive!
