At the Monteverde Bat Jungle you are able to learn all different things about bats: the diversity of bats, the abundance of bats, where they root and what bats eat (including such things as fruit, nectar, insects, frogs, fish, birds, lizards and mice). Bat wings are different than birds wings and also this will be well explained. Echo location and baby bats are of course also things information is to be found about. 

The bat jungle has 80 live bats of 8 species in a huge flight space (52 sq m, 560 sq ft), which is designed to look like a tropical cloud forest at night. You can watch the bats and bat feeders from a "Bat Habitat", which is a glass enclosed viewing area. While you are in the "bat habitat" you will be able to hear the echo sounds that the bats make, the sounds are transformed with a "bat detector". 

There are lots of interesting exhibits which will teach you the importance of bat conservation for controlling bugs, regenerating tropical rain forests and pollination flowers. You will be taught about specific conservation issues, like making bat houses and bat exclusion (gently moving the bat from one place to another, when they are unwanted). 

This tour is a nice and relaxing addition to your time in Monteverde, the tour takes only about an hour depending on how long you want to stay and observe the bats in the "bat habitat".
