Montverde Cloud Forest
There’s a forest in the clouds in western Costa Rica. A dewy jungle thrives where the Cordillera de Tilarán mountain range meets the skyline. I trekked through the Mountverde Cloud Forest Reserve with all the wonderful Photojojo folks during our annual workcation. You can see more photos on our dedicated Costa Rica Workcation Blog.
The reserve we visited installed 8 ‘skywalks’ through the forest. These canopy bridges are as tall as the trees in some places. As you walk, the bridges sway just enough to make your heart pound.
Everything here is gigantic. I’m used to seeing ferns cooped up in terra cotta pots on a porch or by a TV. In the cloud forest they have the freedom to become unbelievable behemoths. The fern here is easily bigger than a truck.
