Fodor's Review

This private, 52-acre wildlife refuge is laced with four trails and houses birds, sloths, agoutis, and coatimundis. You'll also come upon two waterfalls and a coffee plantation. If you can't make it all the way up to the Monteverde Reserve for the day hike, there's a guided, two-hour twilight walk that begins each evening at 5:30. Reservations are required.
