Background:

Frequently, the most inaccessible places are the most spectacular and memorable.  Monte Verde, Costa Rica is such a place.  I was staying in Tabacon by the Arenal Volcano and wanted to try something different.  Two boats, two jeeps, and one horse later I found what I was looking for.  Monte Verde is a huge, unspoiled cloud forest in the middle of Costa Rica.  

To get to the firest from the Tabacon area, the first step is a boat ride across the lake

Then horses to cross the rough terrain

"The payoff"...my son zip-lining through the forest canopy

One of the highest zip-lines in the world
