The mission over 20 years ago when the project began, was to bring the Cloud Forest and it's creatures to our doorstep.
We are happy to say that we have succeeded. The gardens have some truly special plants such as Tree Ferns, Imperial Bromeliads and Anthuriums. There are also many species of orchids, white and purple Agapanthus, Hydrangeas and much more. In the beginning we rarely saw mammals on the grounds, but today it's common to see White-nose Coatis, Agoutis, and White- faced Capuchin monkeys.
Birds love the grounds surrounding Monteverde Lodge. We often see the Three-Wattled Bellbird, the Masked Tityra and the Emerald Toucanet, among others. The songs of the Rufous-and-White Wren usually accompanies your time in the gardens.
