About the Curi-Cancha Reserve:
The Curi-Cancha Reserve is a 237-acre (96-ha) reserve that protects both primary and secondary forests. The reserve sees fewer visitors than the Monteverde and Santa Elena reserves, but has some of the best birding in the area.
Of the many birds that live here, resplendent quetzals, keel-billed toucans, orange-bellied trogons, and blue-crowned motmots are some of the best. Also present in the reserve are anteaters, three-toed sloths, howler monkeys, white-faced capuchin monkeys, and armadillos. Lowland wet montane forest dominates the lower elevations, while premontane cloud forests blanket higher areas.
Private Guided Tour:
This is a privately guided tour, so you won’t have to share a guide with a large group of people. Privately guided tours are much more intimate and typically allow for better experiences – more questions are asked and more info is gleaned.
You’ll walk along the reserve’s trails and learn about the plants, animals, and insects that you pass. You might learn about reptilian camouflage or the incredible tenacity of strangler figs. The walk is available at the time of your choosing and typically lasts about 3 hours.
Your guides are equipped with a telescope, binoculars, and informational guidebooks. Remember to bring your camera and questions – you’ll be sure to want both!

The best tour! Excellent guide
Nice clean and well maintained natural park. Enjoyed it and our guide.
For our first day we had organised an early morning guided tour of the Curi Cancha Private Reserve. We were picked up from our hotel at 7am in the dot. Our guide, Victor, was very knowledgable and clearly enjoys his job. Although we failed to see a Quetzal, we are with him for much longer than 3 hours and then he takes us back to our hotel. Despite not seeing a Quetzal, it was a most enjoyable experience.
Take a guided tour of the misty Santa Elena Cloud Forest Reserve, a lesser known cloud forest in the Monteverde area. You will walk along different trails in search of birds and mammals, discussing the amazing diversity of plants and learning all about this bio-diverse paradise.
