A great base for exploring the whole southern end of the Nicoya Peninsula. We stayed for three nights and it was a great place to start the day and retreat to in the evening. Our only suggestion would be fly screens on the bedroom patio doors for those of us who attract the mossies. Great beer available too!

We LOVED staying here! The staff was knowledgeable and friendly (the owners are great people), the grounds are beautiful, and it is nearby to some great hikes (the waterfalls!). Be forewarned that this B7B is a bit of a walk downhill to the city center, which means UPHILL back to your room at night.

Every once in a while we come upon a place we can't seem to get enough of. This is what happened to us during a recent visit to Costa Rica. Mariposario B&B was recommended to us by some friends in Canada and when we arrived in Montezuma one evening we went to see is there was a room available. Being... More

It began with me asking Josh what would be the best way for getting from Monteverde to Montezuma with only using public transportation. On the same day he replied with a detailed description of the route. With that we were able to get to Montezuma without any problems and also save some good money compared to the shuttle. Throughout our... More

We stopped in to check out the butterfly garden. This is located right uphill from town, which is great for those looking to get lost in paradise away from shops etc yet still be close enough to the amenities. The butterfly garden a peacefully beautiful place, filled with native plants and an abundance of winged creatures. The staff were friendly... More

Our stay at the Mariposario Montezuma Gardens was wonderful. This is a lovely family run BnB. I was traveling with my young adult son who is 27 and we both felt more than comfortable there. We were welcomed by warm and friendly staff members such as Ivan. We were given a lovely room with a hot shower, great advice, books... More

Mariposario Gardens in Montezuma is a wonderful place to stay. We felt so welcome that we didn't want to leave. The people here are kind, enthusiastic and so very helpful. The B&B offers a work-exchange program, so you will find lovely young people working here. If you are looking for a genuine eco-friendly hostel with all the amenities, look no... More

Spent five nights here, and wish it could have been twice that long: The very efficient and extremely hospitable staff made us feel like we were at home in a family atmosphere; the room was nice, with a comfortable bed, air conditioning, and balcony; the jungle and wildlife was at our fingertips; the nearby village was quaint and relaxing, with...

We began our 3 month trip to the area with a one month stay at Mariposario. We were in the purple room with the huge balcony. After a few days I remarked to Michael that we really had not seen much wildlife. I looked to my left, and right next to us, a howler was stretched full length, eating leaves... More

Very nice B&B, ppl extremely friendly, great advices for all the restaurants and spots of Montezuma. Breakfast is fantastic, and rooms are just perfect. only watchout would be regarding the prices of the activities, even if sub contracted to other companies (for snorkeling, etc), theB&B is taking a commission on the price, could be up to 10$ per person vs...
