Though lesser known, the Santa Elena Reserve is an equally remarkable, though distinct, cloud forest. Its higher elevation makes it cooler than Monteverde Reserve, and you often hike in winds and clouds. The Santa Elena Reserve sits on the Caribbean Slope and has patches of secondary forest as well as extensive areas of primary forest. Depending on your interest the trail system offers short, intermediate and long hikes.
Santa Elena is the best place to search for the Three-Wattled Bell bird. Their hummingbird gallery is busy with five different species of Hummingbirds and the trails are busy with mixed flocks of birds.
From a botanical point of view, Santa Elena offers remarkable opportunities to observe a dense plant life and learn about the interactions taking place in this complex ecosystem.← Back to Activities
