💖 “Magical Trip”



My first trip to Monteverde was magical, thanks to MonteTours. Their expert team took away all the stress of planning, helping me with everything from the best tours to choosing the right shuttles. Their local knowledge is unparalleled, making every experience authentic. I was particularly impressed by their commitment to eco-friendly practices. The highlight was the cloud forest tour – a breathtaking journey I’ll cherish forever. Highly recommend!”

Who We Are at MonteTours (aka El Bosque Monteverde)

El Bosque Monteverde (pronounced “El Bose-kay Mont-e-ver-day”), which translates to “The Monteverde Forest” in Spanish, is not just a travel agency and tour company; we symbolize resilience and passion. Founded in the challenging year of 2020, amidst the early stages of the COVID-19 pandemic, our journey began when the world paused and tourism faced unprecedented hurdles. We had a hotel in Monteverde, but we lost it due to the high operation costs in a world with virtually zero tourism, as our borders were closed for several months, resulting in us filing for bankruptcy. However, we saw an opportunity – to prepare for a new era of travel that is sustainable, responsible, and immersive.

Our team, rooted deeply in Monteverde, combines native expertise with a shared love for exploration. We’re driven by the desire to showcase Monteverde’s enchanting beauty and mysteries, providing experiences that resonate personally.

Our commitment extends beyond tours. We are guardians of Monteverde’s pristine ecosystems, promoting eco-conscious travels. Every service, from shuttles to tailored trips, is curated, keeping the environment and the traveler at heart.

With accolades from over 700 travelers on platforms like Google and TripAdvisor, our reputation for excellence speaks for itself. When you journey with El Bosque Monteverde, you join a community that cherishes nature, heritage, and the thrill of discovery.

Dive into Monteverde with us and craft memories that echo the spirit of adventure.

What Customers Say About MonteTours

Best Experience Ever! Nature Tour by MonteTours

Best experience ever! Our guide was excellent. He started the tour by setting expectations upfront and then took us through different paths. We spotted some cool snakes, insects, and birds! And our guide captured the pictures on our phone through his scope.

– Vaishnavi Soundar
Small Group Tour Night Tour by MonteTours

We had a fabulous time on this tour! The guide was incredibly knowledgeable, and our group was tiny, which was fantastic. We could have listened to him talk all night about the native plants and critters of Costa Rica. Highly recommend checking this out!

– Megan Aquilina
So Many Birds! Birding Tour by MonteTours

Amazing. We're birders and wanted a birding tour specialized in that area, and we're happy we found this place. Our guide was the most passionate person I've ever met. He deeply respected nature and found many bird species for us, which is what we wanted.

Getting Started on Your Trip to Monteverde

Suppose you’ve been to our website before and know precisely what you want to book. In that case, we recommend you click the “Book Now” button (top-right on desktops or center-bottom on mobile devices), as that will open up the widget to get your tickets for tours and shuttles or your reservation for lodging through our accommodations’ partner

On the other hand, if you’re unsure what to book, we recommend you jump back to the top of this page so you can browse the different sections to learn more about each service. For example, suppose you want to go ziplining but don’t know which Monteverde tour company will suit you best (several companies offer ziplining tours in Monteverde). Then, instead of jumping into the booking widget, you will want to click on “Tours > View All,” then go into the Zipline category to learn the critical differences between each offering to find out which one will suit you best.

Alternatively, suppose you have questions or need help with your booking. In that case, you may contact us with the following contact information, and one of our friendly customer service agents will assist you. We’re available daily from 6 AM to 10 PM Costa Rica Time.
