Monteverde’s Hidden Gem

Monteverde is renowned for its lush cloud forests, diverse wildlife, and stunning landscapes. While popular destinations like the Monteverde Cloud Forest Reserve and the Children’s Eternal Rainforest often steal the spotlight, smaller hidden gems are waiting to be discovered by the intrepid traveler. One such treasure is Curi Cancha, a lesser-known but equally captivating destination that promises an immersive experience in the heart of Monteverde’s biodiversity.

About 10 minutes from the Monteverde Cloud Forest Reserve, Curi Cancha is a 205-acre private reserve that epitomizes the concept of ecotourism. Unlike the larger and more touristy Monteverde Reserve, Curi Cancha offers a more intimate encounter with nature, allowing visitors to connect deeply with the diverse ecosystems that thrive within its boundaries.

Customer Testimonials

Excellent Night Tour Nocturnal Tour

Our guide provided an excellent night tour. Our small group saw owls, a Pit Viper snake, a two-toed sloth, lots of Brown Jays, spiders, and a sleeping Toucan. His night scope allowed us to capture amazing photos and videos!

– Stephen Kinstler
Highly Recommended Night Tour

We highly enjoyed the guided night tour! We saw multiple birds (including two toucans!), a tarantula, a scorpion, a kinkajou, and an armadillo! Plus, walking around at night in a rainforest (with a guide) is pretty awesome in and of itself.

So Many Birds Birdwatching Tour

Our birdwatching tour was an outstanding experience as we saw the Resplendent Quetzal and many other birds here! We had an excellent tour guide who passionately explained exciting facts about all the birds we saw.

Great Birding Experience Birdwatching Tour

We went on this tour mainly to spot the Quetzal, and our guide took us to the avocado tree near the open gardens, where we saw a few male Quetzals flying around. It was amazing. I highly recommend it if you love birding.

Best Hike Of My Life Natural History Tour

We did the natural history walk at the Curi Cancha reserve, and I must say this was a good idea. This place has no cloud forest but is home to many exciting animals and birds that we could not see in the cloud forest. We saw many things!

My Favorite Experience Natural History Tour

We did the Natural History Tour, and it was hands down my favorite experience in all of Costa Rica. Not only did we luck out with our guide, an enthusiastic and knowledgeable naturalist, but we also found many animals along.
