Thursday, Cloud Forrest Reserve, and on to the Pacific.

Cloud Forest Hike, Jaco

This morning, drive by the Children’s Eternal Rainforest, part of the Monteverde cloud forest region. The Children’s Rainforest was purchased with donations from school children around the world to be preserved forever. Next, enter a cloud forest reserve, home to epiphytes, orchids, ferns and tropical birds, for a guided walk. Cloud forests are like rainforests, but with less rain and more humidity. Look for many species of hummingbirds in the feeding gallery. Lunch at a cloud forest restaurant. Then, to the Jaco area on the Pacific Ocean for a two night stay.
