You’ve heard of rainforests and maybe even remember hearing a few other types of forests from your 7th grade science class. Do you remember learning about cloud forests? I had never heard of these before moving to Costa Rica.

Costa Rica has 12 micro-climates. In a few highland areas you can find cloud forests. A cloud forest’s unique feature is 100% humidity. They are rare and attract scientists and nature lovers because of the immense amount of wildlife that can flourish in this cool humid jungle.

These special forests are worth a visit to! You will be surrounded by clouds and mist and maybe even a rainbow or two! Imagine walking across a bridge through the sky, looking down on clouds below you!

You will want to come prepared. This is nothing like being at the beach. It will be very cold so bring a jacket. I’d also suggest hiking boots and a hat. Of course come with a camera, too.

There are a number of cloud forests inCosta Rica, most notably Monteverde and San Gerardo de Dota. Some people like the cloud forests so much that they live in the closest one to San Jose and commute 1.5 hours each way for work!
