How to get there: From San Jose, take the Pan-American Highway going north. Continue north through Miramar and watch for a restaurant called the “Caballo Blanco” with a large white horse on its sign and is along the right side of the road. From there, turn right at the road sign for Monteverde and Selvatura Park. Follow the signs towards a turnoff along the right side that is just beyond a gas station. The first few miles of the road are paved and the rest is unpaved and bumpy. Follow the winding road as it gains elevation. There are more signs along the road.
