This is a very cute and quaint place. The property was quiet, serene, and lovely. Esteban was very accommodating especially because we had to check in past the time stated online. He waited for us to arrive and kindly checked us in. The room was spacious, had 2 beds, a coffee maker with free coffee. The bed was comfortable, clean... More

My three nights' stay at Mariposa is truly excellent, since the moment I arrived at Mariposa, Esteban and his whole family were so friendly and helpful about tour and activities etc. Mariposa locates outside of town and more close to Monteverde Cloud Forest Reserve with 20mins walk, and it is also convenient walking to Cheese Factory and some restaurants nearly...

Two bed room suite with wrap around balcony is very spacious and relaxing, surrounded with trees. Esteban is so polite and helpful, extremely nice owner and host. Breakfast is freshly made to order and very delicious, loved all the fresh fruits. Its... More

Recently we were lucky enough to stay at Mariposa Bed and Breakfast for our vacation! Initially, we had booked our stay in Monteverde to be at another highly rated B&B in the area. About one week before our set adventure to Costa Rica began, we received word that our reservation was not confirmed at other place. Needless to say I... More

We arrived to be greeted by our wonderfully gracious and gentle host, Esteban. He was extremely informative about the Monteverde and Santa Elena area and his tips were spot on. We had an impeccably clean and spacious cabina with 2 rooms and an ensuite, plus a delightful balcony amongst the higher canopy trees. The balcony gave us the opportunity to... More

Excelent place to stay! The rooms are sparkling clean (ours had a full size bed and a single bed) the breakfast is really good (one has a choice of Costa Rican Breakfast, or pancakes or granola cereal, all come with tropical food) and the location is great. It is near Refugio Monteverde, the Cheese Factory and Curi Cancha Reserve. Fully... More

We were a little afraid, because of some not so good reviews and worried about what we expect to find there. What we found was a very warm and welcome feeling, which esteban gave us. The house was very clean, very spacious and yes, a little bit at the edge of nowhere, but perfect if you want to visit monteverde... More

Excellent warm welcome from Esteban, lovely and smiling costarican host. Good advices and always available. Cosy bungalows in the garden. Full breakfast with fruits, pancakes, gallo pinto. Excellent value for money. Room close to Monteverde reserve, 10min away from Santa Elena by car. I definitely recommend!

This is the only B&B located in Monteverde. The other ones are in Santa Elena and Cerro Plano which are part of Monte Verde but not Monteverde. Monteverde got its name from the first settlers from Fair hope, Alabama and that is the place were Mariposa is located. They have few but nice little cabins right in the heart of... More

Readers might want to know that my husband and I and another couple were on a birding trip; we tried to find places that were economical, clean, well taken care and that contained enough habitat on the grounds to attract birds. With that in mind, Mariposa was my favorite stay during my recent trip to Costa Rica, although it is... More
