This exhibit provokes a new appreciation for the often misunderstood creatures of the night. The Bat Jungle exhibit is the culmination of 40 years of research conducted all over the world by Dr. Richard LaVal, a longtime member of the Monteverde community.

At the Bat Jungle you will learn everything you’ve ever wanted to know about bats. And then a little bit you may not have known you wanted to know about bats. There are a number of interesting exhibits that will teach you about the importance of bat conservation for controlling bugs, regenerating tropical forests, and pollinating flowers. You will hear about specific conservation issues, like making bat houses, and bat exclusion (gently moving them out of a place where they are unwanted).

Once you’ve absorbed all this, you’ll move on to watching bats in action. The bat jungle has more than 40 live bats from 7 different species in a huge flight space (about 52 square meters) that is designed to look like a tropical cloud forest at night. You can watch the bats visit their feeders for fruit and nectar from behind a glass enclosed viewing area.

no smoking

Smokers Be Aware!
Costa Rica has recently passed one of the strictest smoking regulations in the world; hotels are 100% SMOKE FREE.
If you are a guest at the hotel, and want to smoke, by law you are required to leave the property. This is a 300 meter walk to the road outside the main gate, day or night, rain or shine. We realize that this is very inconvenient, but it’s the law. There is an $800 fine for breaking this law.
