    Monteverde

    June 4, 2018 in Costa Rica ⋅ 🌧 24 °C

    A beautiful 4 hour drive on mostly good roads took us to the cloud forests of Monteverde. We were so glad to escape the heat and mosquitoes in this higher and more comfortable elevation.
    The place we're staying has an onsite hydroponic garden so we've enjoyed some beautifully fresh salads during our stay.
    On a night walk we saw our first porcupine (in a tree), armadillo and glass frog. We also saw a tarantula, sloth and many insects and birds. On a day walk in Monteverde Reserve, we felt super lucky to see the Resplendent Quetzal – maybe the most beautifully colored and feathered bird we’ve seen so far.
