After the bumpy ride, we will make a stop to stretch our legs and recharge with a cup of fresh Costa Rica coffee from the famous Don Juan Coffee Plantation. We will take a short tour through the coffee plantation and learn a bit about how the coffee beans they grow go from the plant to the yummy hot coffee in your mug.
We will hop back in the van and make the final short trek up the hill to Monteverde´s famous Selvatura nature park. The Real Deal Tours enjoys putting the tour choices in your hands, so as we enter the private cloud forest reserve, you get to choose your own adventure. Thrill seekers can choose the Selvatura canopy tour and zip their way through the cloud forest canopy. Those who prefer to keep their feet firmly planted can opt to explore the majestic cloud forest at their own while traversing a total of 8 different hanging bridges. After your cloud forest exploration, we will have a bit of time left over to hit some of the nature exhibits such the hummingbird garden and eat a tasty lunch before heading back to Arenal.
