Monteverde Cloud Forest Reserve Costa Rica
Monteverde Cloud forests Costa Rica The area is host to the Monteverde Cloud Forest Reserve and several other natural attractions.
The head village is Santa Elena, the area's largest town and tourist hub, Situated at 4,662 ft (1,440 m) above sea level. (Population 6,750).
In the early 1950s, a group of Quakers from the United States left their homes in Alabama and arrived in Monteverde, established a simple life in Monteverde, centered on dairy and cheese production. 
Some of these families helped establish the Monteverde and Santa Elena Cloud Forest Reserve some 20 years later.

Monteverde Cloud forests You'll feel like you're on top of the world. Monteverde's cloud forests are the byproduct of fog (a thick, low-hanging cloud) tangling amongst the leaves and branches of the forest canopy. 
The sun has a hard time breaking through this thick veil of clouds. This causes a slower rate of evaporation and thus provides the plants with a bounty of life-giving moisture. 
The Monteverde Cloud Forest Biological Preserve of the Tropical Science Center is the first private area for the conservation of wildlife founded in Costa Rica in October of 1972 and It draws roughly 70,000 visitors a year.
It is also home to an astounding number of plant and wildlife species. There are around 3,000 plant species in it, over 100 mammal species and 400 bird species.
Monteverde has several reserves to take in the area’s abundant nature, but one of the most popular is the Monteverde Cloud Forest Reserve (Reserva Biologica Bosque Nuboso Monteverde).

Arenal, one of the world's most active volcanoes.
Volcán Arenal, a beautiful, 1657-m high conical andesitic stratovolcano,with a crater of 140 meters.
The amazing Arenal Volcano.
On July 29, 1968, Arenal awoke from its slumber. A thunderous earthquake shook the area and a subsequent explosion of lava wiped out three nearby villages.(although it is now known that eruptions have occurred on and off for the last 7,000 years.)
 Located in La Fortuna near Lake Arenal. 
Since 2010 the activity has subsided and no new lava flows have occurred. It is however an undisputed fact that this is still an extremely active volcano likely to erupt violently at any time.
