Welcome to Reserva Santa Elena


This cloud forest is slightly higher in elevation than Monteverde’s; as some of the forest is secondary growth, there are sunnier places for spotting birds and other animals. There’s a stable population of monkeys and sloths, many of which can be seen on the road to the reserve. Unless you’re a trained ecologist, the old-growth forest in Santa Elena will appear fairly similar to that found in Monteverde.
