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!

Yes, you can tour the Cloud Forest without staying at the Villa Blanca Hotel. It is not a requirement to stay at the hotel facility, since the hotel is inside the cloud forest reserve. However, you should probably take into... More
