This B&B has so much to offer for nature's lovers. The cabins are spotless clean, the manager/owner, Esteban, is the friendliest person we have met in beautiful country Costa Rica. Monteverde and especially the charming city of St. Elena are very interesting to visit. Little shops, craftshops, a lot to do. Beds are cleans and comfortables, large bathroom, very well... More

It was really wonderful. We arrived here the day we flew it and it was so nice to feel like we were staying in a clean place. No need for AC up here. The only bummer was we could not get a wifi signal in our room. But it was not that's big of an issue. All are very friendly... More

Mariposa was the perfect place for me and my family on our recent trip to Monteverde. We were nine in all, and we stayed in the house on the left just as you enter the property. The rooms were comfortable and clean, and the water in the showers was hot. I was worried a bit about there being no air... More

We stayed several nights at Mariposa. It was a very enjoyable stay! Esteban and the staff were very friendly. The room was very clean and the person who cleaned the room would make sweet folds with the bath towels. The breakfast was delicious and our kitchen in the room was big and spacious with tons of cookware. I would come... More

We had left a pre-booked vacation rental on the Puntarenas Coast after one night because it was in a very inconvenient location, a long drive from everything we wanted to see and do. (In Costa Rica, you have to plan on taking 4 times as long to get anywhere as indicated by the map or your GPS, because the roads... More

My husband and I enjoyed our stay at Mariposa! It is run by a very nice family who provided excellent service and were very pleasant. They are knowledgeable about the area and seemed to really enjoy sharing information and discussing the area and the local animals. Each room is a cabin. Ours was in a row of three cabins and...

We really enjoyed our stay in the apartment with a resident motmot in the trees outside, agouti snuffling down in the undergrowth and hummingbirds visiting the flowers nearby. Also the fireflies in the evening were something special for us. Estevan was always friendly and helpful with any information we required and the breakfasts were plentiful and tasty. About 20 mins...
