Ficus Trails Night Tour Overview 

Ficus Trails Night Tour is a light 2-hour walk in search of the creatures of the night, recommended to anyone who wants to see a few mammals, sleeping birds, and a wide variety of insects.

Animals in Monteverde, Costa Rica, are more active and prominent during the nighttime when they come out searching for food and shelter, so you will have many more chances to see them on a night tour. 

Ficus Trails Night Tour takes place on a farm with its private forest, including amazing fig trees, where you can see some wildlife.

Ficus Trails Night Tour Specializes in Birdwatching

Ficus Trails Night Tour takes place on a small farm comprising primary and secondary forests, open areas, and fruit trees that attract some local wildlife, especially birds.

Even though every night is different and nature is unpredictable, we typically see more bird species than most local night tour companies resulting from the combination of having a farm next to a forest. 

For example, we usually see toucans and hummingbirds sleeping in the fig trees next to the farm. However, in addition to spotting birds, we typically see big animals, such as monkeys, and fascinating insects, such as Tarantulas. 

Ficus Trails Night Tour Group Sizes

You will join a group of four to ten people, with a local tour guide who will give you an introduction and flashlights before starting the walk on Ficus Trails. Spots are limited, so you need to book in advance.

Restrictions: Ficus Trails Night Tour is not wheelchair accessible, and it is not suitable for kids under the age of 5. 


Ficus Trails Night Tour Meeting Point

Ficus Trails Night Tour is a short 2-minute drive from Santa Elena, Monteverde. Even though you can include transportation with the tickets for an extra fee, we recommend driving to the park directly whenever possible. Getting here by your means can save you up to 60 minutes since the shuttles have to stop many times at multiple locations to pick up or drop off travelers.

After you make your online reservation, you will get an instant confirmation email that will include a link with Google Maps’ driving instructions, so you can easily follow along if you decide to come with your vehicle. 

Book Now with Flexible 24-Hour Cancelation

Ficus Trails Night Tour has a much smaller capacity than other more touristy, busier local night tour companies. Therefore, we recommend booking the tour in advance to ensure availability, especially during peak tourist seasons.

We offer a 24-hour, flexible cancelation policy, so you can book now to secure your spots and have peace of mind knowing you can cancel directly from your confirmation email at least 24 hours before the tour day, and you will get a full refund. No questions asked, and no need to call in, email, or message anyone to cancel.
