Night Hike in the Children's Eternal Forest

Monteverde is known for its protected natural areas that include various ecosystems, including drenched cloud forests and the dry forests of the Pacific. This diverse environment gives life to an abundance of wildlife, and night hikes are a great way to see all of the animals and creatures that slow down their rhythms and come out at night.

In the evening, you'll have the chance to see the wildlife of the Children's Eternal Forest at its most active time. A naturalist will lead on this adventure, pointing out animals, such as sloths, armadillos, and kinkajous, plus sleeping birds. In addition, you'll hear and see wildlife that differs from the active animals during the daytime, like agoutis, porcupines, gray foxes, tarantulas, and frogs.
