Monte Verde Lodge is located at 5,000 feet in the Monteverde Cloud Forest Reserve. Clouds and mist, even during the dry season keeps this area green and lush. The Lodge grounds were filled with beautiful plants, flowers and a Agouti (raccoon family) that I chased for a couple of days and got nothing but a blur. Trying to remember the advise of our professional photographer on the Antarctica trip, who advised us to put our cameras down sometimes and just enjoy the view. Memories are great too!
