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 in search of food and shelter, so you will have a lot more chances to see them on a night tour. 

Ficus Trails Night Tour takes place on a farm with some forest around it including amazing ficus trees where you can see some wildlife. Most of the wildlife that will be seen will be in the form of insects. 

You will join a group of four to eight 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 takes place at Ficus Trails, a short 2-minute drive from Santa Elena, Monteverde. Even though transportation is included, the recommendation is to drive to the park directly whenever possible. Driving to the park 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.
