Canopy Tour Monteverde
Monteverde or “Green Mountain” as it is directly translated is aptly named for its extensive reserve of lush, verdant cloud forests in Costa Rica. For those who want to explore the mysteries of the cloud forests, the most popular way to discover this unique area is by trekking across walkways built in the forest canopy – or gliding along a zip-line! The walkways were originally constructed for scientists seeking to learn more and discover new creatures.
Landscapes from the Road
Driving from Arenal to Monteverde in Costa Rica revealed beautiful landscapes, with mountains, clouds and water, of the country.
Arenal Volcano is an active andesitic stratovolcano in north-western Costa Rica around 90 km northwest of San José, in the district of La Fortuna. The Arenal volcano measures at least 1,633 meters high. It is conically shaped with a crater 140 meters in diameter. The Arenal Volcano became famous because it consistently spewed lava, gas, and ash until it went into a resting phase, in 2010. Although you can no longer see lava, the perfectly symmetrical volcano it is still impressive. Clouds obscured our view but it still seems magical.
