Package Itinerary

The “clouds” that hover over the forest are actually a continuous mist, created by the extreme humidity at this altitude, about 1,600 meters above sea level. With this constant cover, the forest below is always moist. That makes it ideal for the wealth of plants that grow here, which include hundreds of species of beautiful orchids and ferns.

Of course, wildlife abounds here as well. The Santa Elena Cloud Forest is home to an astonishing number of animals. Feline species include pumas, jaguarundi and the endangered jaguar, which sports black spots over an orange-yellow coat that is prized for its beauty. Spider monkeys and sloths also make the forest their home, along with the bright red poison dart frog and the extinct golden toad.
