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

My wife and I and our 1.5 year old stayed in Cabin #8 with my wife's parents for 4 nights in November 2014 and had a wonderful time. The cabin is simple, clean, and comfortable. The kitchen is sufficiently stocked to reheat food, make a light meal, and make coffee/tea. The wifi was spotty, but I believe it was due... More

After a lot of research, we selected Cabinas Capulin. The cabins are clean and the property is impeccably maintained. The views from the cabin are amazing and the breakfast in the morning is delicious. The cabins are outside of town so it was great we had a car. If you have kids, definitely ask for a tour of the farm... More

I chose this cabinas after extensive research for our Santa Elena trip. It fit our needs of two families traveling together with three children and four adults. We stayed at #8 (four bedrooms, two bathrooms) for two nights. The house is simple and very clean. The view is beautiful. Our children love the wood-made rustic house. My son told me... More

Pros - great views, location, restful, idyllic, good coffee, extremely pleasant patron, a short walk into town Cons - watch out for the dogs on your walk into town, housekeeping; bin was infrequently emptied...

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!
