Just left after a 3 night stay during the quiet (rainy) season. These cabins are a little outside of Santa Elena and up above the town which our family of 4 liked. There are basic kitchens and pots/pans, silverware, place settings in the units so you can cook some of your own meals (also hot plates, fridge, coffeepot, sink and... More

Cabinas Capulin is located outside of the town of Santa Elena. It is on a steep street which leads to the SkyWalk Zip Lines and the cabins are on a steep driveway off of the street. Our family of 6 stayed in Cabin #8 for 3 nights which provided ample beds for everyone but the Cabin is basically no frills.... More

Wow! What a special spot with stunning views!!!! My husband and I stayed in Cabin #6 for 1 night and I wish we had stayed longer. The little balcony was wonderful to sit out on and we woke up to the sound of howler monkeys in the Monteverde forest. Amazing. We had a double and a single bed and the... More

The most stunning location of any of the beautiful places we stayed in Costa Rica. Watching the 270 degree sunset from a hammock in front of the cabins was magical. Friendly and helpful service from the lovely hosts, and wonderful Costa Rican breakfasts to keep you going all day. (Tastiest pineapple of the trip, which is saying something). We had... More

We just spent 4 days in Monteverde and stayed in Cabin 3 at Cabinas Capulin. It was perfect. Beautiful setting, quiet except for the birds, close to everything, great hosts - all at a surprisingly low cost. The only thing we will do different next time? Stay longer!

I recently led a study abroad field course of university students to Costa Rica, and Cabinas Capulin hosted us all in Monteverde for 3 nights. We stayed in multiple cabins, and the instructors stayed in Cabin #8 (large cabin for a big family - amazing views). I'd definitely return there with my family as well. We also ate all our... More

Great cabin to view sunset! We did not supposed to see sunset before arriving because of the raining in the afternoon. However, thanks God, we have two fine days during our four days' stay! The great cabin to live among the Mountain and wildness! We like the kitchen, too. If the bathroom a little bit bigger, better!

We stayed at Cabin 5 and it was perfect. Great views and perfect for bird watching. It was too far to walk to the restaurants etc but we had an SUV so it was fine. With advise from the host we found a cool spot to see the Arenal Volcano (about 8km away). The place is not fancy inside (no... More

Wow! We stayed in the secluded mountain home they rent. Couldn't have asked for a better experience! Would go back tomorrow if we could! Hannibal and his brothers made our time there amazing. We toured the family farm, made a sweet drink from sugar cane, swung like Tarzan from a vein tree then experienced an amazing tree swing that the... More
