Santa Elena Reserve

The Santa Elena Cloud Forest Reserve is located in the area of Monteverde, about 7 km north of the town of Santa Elena, from which its name originates. Located in the Caribbean part of the continental division, at an average height of 1600msnm, this Reserve is bathed by the north trade winds creating a cloud yell system that is maintained almost all year round, leading to the development of an exuberant diversity of plants that give life to an evergreen Magic Forest.  This Reserve in turn is part of the community when administered by the Parent Board of the Professional Technical College of Santa Elena.  It is located within the Arenal Tempisque Conservation Area (ACAT) is part of the Arenal Monteverde Protective Zone and in turn is located within the Biological Corridor Pájaro Campana.
