Day 4 – Monteverde
If you are up to the adventure, take a canyoning tour. It will start with a short walk, and once you reach the first water fall, the guide will give you the proper gear and explain how to rappel down the waterfall safely. Maybe you are looking for a little less adventure. You can take the Sky Walk, it is a wonderful opportunity to enjoy the flora of the cloud forest at a slower pace. The suspension bridges vary in length, and offer different views.
