Thank you for visiting the reserve and contributing to reforestation and environmental education. The waterfalls are beautiful this time of year now that it is raining again.

We spent a day walking the trails and greatly enjoyed the variety of vegetation, birds, waterfalls, and the surrounding scenery. We marvelled at the older trees that were each a masterpiece botanic garden, with bromeliads, ferns, vines, and other vegetation all taking their positions on...More

Really nice area to explore. We didn't go with a guide so we didn't see a lot of wildlife, but the waterfalls were beautiful. We also went swimming in one of the rivers which was really fun.

Cloudbridge is one of our favorite places in the World. It demonstrates so well how ex-farmland can be converted back into vibrant rainforest within a relatively short period of time, how that re-wilded land integrates seemlessly with the surrounding primary forests, and how it all...More

Took the bus from San Isidro to San Gerardo De Rivas then walked a mile or so to the reserve. Sent several hours hiking and enjoying the many waterfalls. Love the history of Cloudbridge and that it is on a donation bases. Life Is Good

Probably a few hours drive. You'll have to drive to San Isidro de la General and then back up toward Rivas. If you look up Monte Azul resort, there are good directions for driving. If you get to Monte Azul, you just stay on... More
