Satisfying everything from bird watchers to nature lovers to adventure fanatics, Monteverde really has it all. That might be what everybody thinks, but we are proud to offer something more, something new and different, and more importantly something more personalized and deep.
SAVIA is a sanctuary for nature, biodiversity, and scientific knowledge. Developed as a natural playground, SAVIA seeks to create an experience in which its visitors can interact intimately with the flora and fauna of the tropical forest in a symbiotic manner.
The experience is offered through four different immersions to choose from: Bird Quest, Morning View, Nightfall and After Hours. Each designed with particular activities given the time of the day and the groups interest (maximum 6). There is also the option to design your own immersion. The immersions all include walking through the different layers of the forest, ground level to tree top guided by our forest and canopy mobility experts to ensure safety and inspiration. You also get the chance to vertically rope climb a 91 foot Fig tree to the first platform where delicious gourmet snacks and beverages designed by Hotel Belmar’s chef await. This means a farm to table experience, directly from our organic garden and Madre Tierra Farm to the tree.
If for some reason you don’t feel like climbing, no worries! There is a hanging bridge that takes you directly to the platform! Here you get to enjoy yourself, the view and the forest.
The second platform takes you to a small canopy, crossing to another tree top while savouring being immersed in nature. And the third platform, offers a stunning view of the Pacific Ocean and feel the breeze from the Caribbean. A sanctuary where two oceans meet and clouds meet treetops.
But it’s not all adventure, good food and great views. SAVIA really commits to giving each guest the opportunity to really explore nature.
With a sensory garden and high-tech gadgets, you get to wander off and really interact with the forest life around you. The Forest experts can help with any questions about plants, insects, animals, natural history, sustainability, climate change, biodiversity and more!
SAVIA is definitely unique in Monteverde, it’s an experience where connecting back with nature is a priority, where you decide what feels good and where everybody around you is happy to give you the experience of a lifetime.
