Many are bilingual - English and Spanish speaking. The community is very diverse culturally including Hispanic Costa Ricans, who are mostly Roman Catholic, biologists originating from several countries
Monteverde is in the Tilaran Mountains of NW Costa Rica on the Pacific side of the continental divide at 1400-1600m (4000-6000ft) elevation. The area has become a prime international ecotourism destination, mainly because of the protection of large areas of cloud forest by private interests. There is now a large infrastructure of tourism related businesses in the region offering everything from hotels and restaurants to guided nature experiences and adventure sports.
