El Silencio de Los Angeles Walk - Walk around with your head in the clouds as you step into… the heart of the cloud forest with our own nature interpreters who will unveil a secret world of rich tropical life all along this 3 kilometer user-friendly trail. Located right on the hotel property, the trail was created by our hotel’s professional nature guides and is designed to showcase a variety of tropical flora and fauna as it winds its way throughout this rare and incredibly diverse biosphere. As a part of only 2.5% of the planet’s remaining cloud forests, this unique forest habitat continues to amaze our hotel guests and guides, as well as the trained research scientists from INBio (The National Institute of Biodiversity), who stablished staff the first research station to operate on a hotel property in Costa Rica.

Our guide, Jairo, helped us to understand the unique nature of the Cloud Forest, and how microclimate is affected by minor changes outside of the cloud forest. The trails were well maintained and there was always an interesting view or bird or flower.

Everyone was very friendly and helpful. The tour guides were excellent. We had a number of options for visits but just stayed in the forest around Villa Blanco as we were staying at the other places visited on day trips later in our holiday.

From the drive in, through stunning countryside, we knew this place would be special. Roy guided us on a memorable hike. Then we enjoyed an outstanding dinner, followed by coffee by fireside. What a special place!
