Monteverde, Costa Rica

Getting Here Is Easy




Senda is located in the lush Monteverde region of Costa Rica’s north-western highlands. It’s just minutes from the famous Cloud Forest Reserve and much easier to reach than Arenal Volcano. Our elevated spot high on the Continental Divide provides cool mountain breezes, panoramic views across the verdant highlands and a peek of the Gulf of Nicoya in the distance.

Senda Monteverde is within easy reach of two international airports and other popular destinations in Costa Rica:

Juan Santamaria International (SJO) and the wildlife-rich Central Pacific coast

Beauty in the Trees

“Hiking in the Monteverde Cloud Forest Preserve (both guided and alone) was one of our favorite experiences in Costa Rica. There was life to be found everywhere – in the trees, under plant leaves, on the ground. The majesty of the trees was amazing.”
