Location

22 Miles
Nearest Motorway
Pan American Highway #1

In the Monteverde area there are 400 species of birds of the 850 species found in Costa Rica. We have spotted many mammals and butterflies on our property as well. A pair of Emerald green toucanets nested in our old century plant. The distinctive 'pong' sound of the bellbird can be heard nearby. So can the 'toledo' of the manakin. Richard can take you on walks down through the forest to our rushing mountain stream with small waterfalls. You may hear coyotes at night; several sizes of agoutis graze through our back garden.
