This is a beautiful place where science meets nature. The hiking trails are very good. But the drive to get to Cloudbridge is very bumpy!

The Cloudbridge Reserve was nothing short of a wonderful experience and one of the highlights of my trip to Costa Rica. A warm welcome by Tom and Linda, enjoying the expertise and bird knowledge of Matt, absorbing the beautiful nature and noises of the cloud...More

This was a semi-challenging trail to various waterfalls, sometimes steep with rolling rock, but the views were worth it. Wonderful waterfalls! Spectacular trees! Beautiful flowers! The reserve is high enough that it stays relatively cool and we had no mosquitoes. The renovation of the forest...More

Cloudbridge is the beautiful result of a 15 year effort to reforest the area at the entrance to Chirripo National park. Getting there is half the fun... the road gets bad... then you get to the hotel Uran and then it gets really, really bad......More

To be honest, we visited this reserve by "accident". We wanted to visit the Chirripo National Park. But after our journey in Cloudbridge, we were very happy that we didn't go to Chirripo. We did the longest trail, which combined a piece of the Chirripo...More

Probably a few hours drive. You'll have to drive to San Isidro de la General and then back up toward Rivas. If you look up Monte Azul resort, there are good directions for driving. If you get to Monte Azul, you just stay on... More
