It's generally dark and wet, but comfortably warm here under the canopy of the Monteverde Cloud Forest Reserve, high in the mountains of northern Costa Rica. The air is thick and quiet, pierced only by the occasional wind-carried bird song, and the ground is littered with biomass continuing an endless cycle of decomposition and new growth. Lie here long and you will become the forest. This magnificent non-profit preserve sits approximately 5,000ft above sea level - higher up than your standard rainforest, into a system called cloud forest, - encompassing an astonishing diversity of wild flora and fauna since its creation in 1972.

Experience the excitement of my 2-week Costa Rica trip here:
