The Monteverde Costa Rica Cloud Forest is one of the most famous conservation area in Central America. It's a tropical rain forest but because of it's altitude (1400 meters or 4.600 feet), it's called a Cloud Forest.
A cloud forest is a highland forest characterized by nearly 100% humidity throughout the year. Here in Monteverde, warm North-Easterly trade winds, filled with moisture, blow in over the Atlantic. As the winds sweep up to the Continental divide, they cool and condense to form clouds, bathing the forest in a constant soft mist. The Monteverde cloud forest receives an incredible four meters of rain every year- that is almost twelve feet.
