Monteverde Area is known around the globe for its conservation efforts and lifestyle centred around respect for nature.

Santa Elena is the area's main service centre with various shops and nearby tourist attractions like hanging bridges, canopy zip-lines, butterfly and frog gardens.

Although its main attraction is the Monteverde Biological Preserve, the region also features a variety of natural sites, picturesque paths, flora- and fauna-watching opportunities (e.g. the resplendent Quetzal), natural landscapes and more.

As a pioneer in ecotourism, Monteverde offers a wide range of hotel options to virtually satisfy everyone and accommodate all budgets.
