Night hike in the cloud forest
Nestled in the highlands, Monteverde is a magnet for travelers, who indulge every outdoor fantasy. One of the most understated – and provocative – tours is the night hike, based in Santa Elena.
Guided by expert naturalists, groups venture into the rain forest at night, where they discover a cornucopia of creatures large, small and deadly.
Not only can guides spot and identify these species in the darkness, they also relate volumes of knowledge in a simple, conversational style. Night hikes are inexpensive, easy to arrange and unforgettable.
Robert Isenberg totes his camera into the night and sees the jungle in a whole new way.
