We liked how quiet and peaceful this place is. Esteban is a great host and gave excellent ideas / advice what to do / visit during our short stay. Mariposa B&B is located near the entrance to the Monteverde national park. So if you don't have a car, it might be a challenge to reach it and move around. The... More

I stayed here 2 nights in December and was very pleased with my experience. This is a family run establishment with 6 rooms facing the hills of the cloud forest. Basic rooms but very clean, comfortable, and with great wi-fi. Breakfast is cooked to order and served piping hot. Great location, close to the cloud forest reserve, and easy downhill... More

The apartment has two rooms with 2 full (almost queen) beds each, a kitchen and a living room. Everything was well maintained and clean. Esteban is really nice and makes you feel like home. He helped us decide on... More

We stayed in the 2 bedroom,2 bath apartment. Plenty of room for the four members of our family. Good coffee and adequate breakfast in the morning. The best pancakes I had on our ten day trip. Esteban, who ran the B&B, was a wealth of information for the area. Also helped us arrange a night walk in the forest, and... More

Estaban was the perfect host, polite, knowledgeable & helpful. We stayed at the Mariposa for 2 nights, the apartment was as described and we had no trouble finding it. It was a lovely tranquil setting & felt like we were living in a tree house. Sadly we missed the visit from a family of armadillos but there were loads of... More

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...

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
