Does the Guided Tour at the Monteverde Reserve in Costa Rica Include the Entrance Fee? Are We Guaranteed Entrance?

When you book a private guided tour or a regular guided tour the entrance fee is included. There are, however, strict limits on the number of entrances to the Monteverde Reserve (described above) which are outside of our control.

The best way to ensure your entrance is to arrive at the time of your scheduled tour or private tour. In some cases during peak entrance periods there is a short wait before the tour begins inside the reserve, but there is still plenty of nature to view just outside of the reserve. During peak season it is common for the guides to do some exploring around the entrance of the reserve for a few minutes until the trails near the entrance clear up.
