Monteverde, a “Green Mountain” Shrouded in Clouds

Tucked away in Costa Rica's Tilarán Mountain Range, Monteverde is a lush, green haven that showcases both nature's beauty and the human dedication to preserving it. The name "Monteverde" means "Green Mountain," which perfectly describes the area's vibrant landscapes. One of Monteverde's main attractions is its cloud forest, a rare and delicate ecosystem where low-hanging clouds create a constant mist, nurturing a variety of plants and animals that often become endemic to the area. This magical environment draws ecotourists from all over the world and highlights Monteverde's role as a crucial conservation zone.
