Monteverde & Santa Elena

Misty treetops of a gloriously green eco-belt. The Tico village of Santa Elena and the Quaker settlement of Monteverde snuggle between two lovingly preserved cloud forests. This unique area, once billed as the place to view the resplendent quetzal bird, remains one of Costa Rica's premiere ecotourism destinations.
Monteverde is great place to get inspired about a world where organic farming and alternative energy sources help to replenish the planet. That said, it's also a place where you can marvel at the latest in eco-fashion. Clearly, the balance here between eco-park and Eco-Disney remains fragile.
