Arenal, Monteverde, and the Northern Lowlands Sights

Sendero Tranquilo Reserve

  • Nature Preserve/Wildlife Refuge

Fodor's Review

This 200-acre forest is managed by the Hotel Sapo Dorado and bordered by the Monteverde Cloud Forest Biological Reserve and the Guacimal River. Five kilometers (3 mi) of narrow trails are designed to have as little impact on the forest as possible (only groups of two to six are allowed). A guide leads you through primary and secondary forest and an area that illustrates the effects of deforestation. Because of the emphasis on minimal environmental impact, animals here tend to be more timid than at some other reserves. Your entrance fee includes a guide and transportation.
