A few days ago we finished a three-night stay in cabin 5. We enjoyed our stay mostly because of the nice people working there. In particular, Anibal and Roy were very helpful and also the two ladies who served us nice breakfasts. The cabins are quite rustic and sparsely furnished. We encountered a few "cottage like quirks" but overall had... More

We really enjoyed our stay at Cabinas Capulin in Monteverde. We were in cabin 3 and have 2 young kids and it was perfect for us! The kitchen is great, nice and big, and the ceilings in the cabin are very high and make it feel quite large. We made eggs and toast and fruit every morning and dinner a... More

Maybe as they say you shouldn't have high expectations or you might be disappointed. Let me share the positives though. The location was perfect. It was fun to see the beautiful hummingbirds and white-faced contis as our neighbors. We had a three hour incredible rainbow every morning! That was fantastic!!! The breakfasts were great and the cook went out of... More

We paid $65/night mid-week. Very reasonable for the area. Near town location, but more than a short walk to all but one restaurant. We were surprised at the size of Santa Elena / Monteverde. There are plenty of restaurants, two super markets, banks, gas station, etc. If you don't have a car it might be a bit difficult. Most attractions... More

My family and I stayed there for 2 nights. It is such a beautiful place, we had a great view over Monteverde and we could even see the Pacific! It was very clean and the staff there was SO helpful with booking activities! I asked for some advice and they gladly help me out. I am telling you this place... More

Cabinas Capulin is located just a few minutes from Santa Elena, but the gorgeous views make it feel as though you're sleeping in the cloud forest. The cabins are comfortable and scrupulously clean, and the property features a beautiful walking trail as well. The staff are friendly and knowledgeable. Overall I couldn't have been happier with my stay!

If you like experiencing the local culture, this is the place for you. Monte Verde's commerce began with the Cheese Factory in 1954, the same year the Capulin farm began. It was a dairy farm that provided milk to the cheese factory. Today much of the farmland in Monte Verde has become the national cloud forest preserve. At Capulin you... More

The cabin was rustic but clean and comfortable - with a fabulous view all the way to the Pacific in the distance. The staff were friendly and kind.

My wife and I stayed in cabin #6. The cabins were not fancy, but were well maintained, and had all the basic necessities. The hotel is somewhat outside the town, but being on the edge of a hill offers great views of the forest. I saw the clouds of the cloud forest come in with the rain. The owners are... More
