I really enjoyed my run/hike up Cerro Amigos. But it's not for everyone. Let's be honest, it's just a hike up a steep dirt road, to a radio tower at the summit. Probably the most redeeming feature is that it's free, one of the only free attractions in Monteverde.

To get to the Cerro Amigos trail (sendaro), drive to the Hotel Belmar and park your car. Then follow the dirt road downhill about 50m. At the bottom of the hill, there is a sign indicating that you are to turn to the left. That is the only turn. After passing a few houses, it's just a steep grind all the way up. If it's raining up top, it can get very slippery, which is a little tough on the descent. Wildlife can be seen along the trail, and there is a craft shop (I did not go in because I was hiking early in the morning). If it's cloudy (often) you won't see much of anything from the summit. I hear that on clear days, you can see Arenal Volcano and other peaks.
