Your personal guide to Monteverde and the highlands of Costa Rica Monteverde and the highlands of Costa Rica attract scientists, bird watchers, and wildlife lovers from all over the world. Its biodiversity covers: virgin cloud forests and multi-century old strangler fig trees, the continental divide where you can see both the Caribbean and the Pacific coasts, reserves that offer views of Arenal Volcano and provide the few remaining homes of the endangered resplendent Quetzal. canopy tours, zip lining, night tours, bird watching tours, butterfly gardens, hanging bridges, buggy driving, horse-back riding... the list is almost endless. So much to do in so little time. In order to make the most of your stay, you require the services of a personal guide who can show you the very best the area has to offer - without having to spend a fortune! My name is Johnny and not only have I lived in the area for most of my life, I am incredibly fortunate that I have realised my childhood dreams; to become a naturalist guide to the most bio diverse forests and unique & fragile ecosystems that the world has to offer.Contact me in order to discuss how I can best help you to make the most of this stunning location.Wishing you a great trip! Johnny Villegas
