Monteverde Discovery Tour starts early departing from Guanacaste. We will drive by the cities of Liberia and Bagaces before turning with direction to Tilaran, one of the windiest towns in Costa Rica. From this point, we will drive for about 60 minutes by the gravel road.
At your arrival, you will visit the Monteverde Hanging Bridges. Here you will have a tranquil introduction of the flora and fauna of the forest canopy. It allows a vision of the forest from a different perspective which starts with a walk on the ground taking you up to explore the treetops, a hardly discovered habitat, called the “canopy”.
Monteverde Hanging Bridges enjoy a total of five bridges, the longest of which spans around 984 feet. The trails extend for slightly over a mile and a half (2.5 km), making this tour extremely feasible for anyone in moderate shape. The climb is not strenuous or muddy, as the trails are well maintained and generally very flat. Your guide will help you learn about native plant and animal species.
At Monteverde Coffee Tour you will learn about the ways that the coffee cherries are picked and the lifestyle of the workers that carry out this task. When the coffee cherries are ready to be picked (from November through to February) this activity can be performed by the visitors.

As well, the washing process of the mucilage that is found underneath the pulp and the separation of the first class coffee beans from the rest.
