Monteverde Cloudforest Reserve
Monteverde Cloudforest Preserve - Probably the most stark contrast between cloudforest and other types of tropical forest is the exaggeration of epiphytic plants that adorn the tree trunks and branches. Thick, spongy moss, bright red and green bromeliads, dangling ferns and ornate orchids compete for space on the crowded bark. In the Monteverde Cloud Forest Preserve there are over 870 different species of such plants living on the trees.
