I wonder how tripadvisor got the idea that the Monteverde Cloud Forest Reserve is a location and not a destination. The truth is, they need to fix it because i noticed that other attractions and even restaurants are posted as located in the Reserve too. Thank you for trying to get Tripadvisor to change that misleading information, I hope it works. I tried too and I am still waiting for an answer. I even sent them a map of the Monteverde area provided by the Monteverde Institute and they still don't say a word. Since I visit Costa Rica a lot and Monteverde is one of my favorite places, I am worried about this confusing situation that causes people to go to the wrong places or to get lost. Perhaps I should add a MAP of Monteverde as a picture so that some people may be able to see it. Any way, thanks for your response and good luck with your new business. Where in La Cruz is your Bird Watching Tour located? May be I will visit on my next trip. Have a good one.

Once more. The location indicated right below your business name says "Monteverde Cloud Forest Reserve" This is the wrong location and if you or tripadvisor places your business in the wrong location, some one needs to clarify such error. When one visits Monteverde many people in town try to sell many tours and some of those people are not honest about anything. The least thing every honest business should do is make sure the information published about where and what they do is correct. So, I did not see your map I read your first hand information on tripadvisor and after checking I noticed the location is on an Attraction. No one can offer a guided tour at any time at the Monteverde Cloud Forest Reserve, except for the Monteverde Cloud Forest Reserve. No one should offer a tour of any kind at your place in La Cruz unless it is you. The Reserve is a famous place and if one reads your advertisement it sounds like if it was located where it says is located, the Reserve. You do pick the name of the place you own but I will appreciate it if such location could be properly corrected so others won't book tours in one place and end up in another. For the sake of your business and the respect of others that is my suggestion. Such kind of information may cause the wrong impression in any of us visiting a place, specially for the first time.
