Drink Lattes in the Jungle in Monteverde
If you visit Monteverde, you are surely visiting for the cloud forest, an expanse of jungle home where quetzals and howler monkeys and thousands of other species roam. Most people visit with tour guides, as you really can't see any of these creatures without a trained tracker with a telescope. The tours usually end in the hummingbird garden, where the hummingbirds drinking from sugar water-filled fountains are nectar for bird watchers and Instagrammers. But the part of the entire experience that no one really talks about is the cafe, Cafe Colibri (hummingbird!), which turned out the finest latte I had in all of Costa Rica, inexplicably topped with a foam ghost.
