Cloud Forest Family Fun

Nicole Perzov


Jardin de Mariposas

Visit the Butterfly Garden, a family friendly and educational tour led by knowledgeable staff that includes a hands-on bug petting and 4 various butterfly habitats. Stop by early as the butterflies are most active in the morning.

Sabor Tico

The BEST local Costa Rican food. Close walk from downtown, great prices, huge portions, made to order fresh smoothies, and friendly staff. You can't ask for more

Costa Rica Zip Line in the Selvatura Forest

An awesome adventure and nature park. Zip through the trees on the Canopy Tour, walk through the clouds on the Treetop Walkways, and relax in nature in the Butterfly Garden and Hummingbird Garden.

Cloud Forest Family Fun

Bajo del Tigre

Watch the sunset over the mountains at the head of the Bajo del Tigre trail, part of the Children's Eternal Rain Forest. Then continue on a guided night hike to observe sleeping birds and the nocturnal creatures awakening in the forest.

Morpho's Café

Stop for dinner at family-friendly Morpho's Cafe, offering international and Costa Rican fare. Great food made with fresh ingredients. Awesome decor to make you feel like you're dining in the cloud forest.


If you still have room in that second stomach, stop by Trio for out of this world dessert!

I would stay at: Hotel El Establo

Every room has a breath-taking view of the mountains. On a clear day you can see all the way across the bay. Impeccable airy rooms that make you feel like you're sleeping in the treetops. Delicious and expansive breakfast buffet included with your stay at the hotel restaurant.
