Hotel Las Orquideas is owned and operated by a local Tico family that lived in U.S. for 29 years. We are located at the entrance of the Monteverde area, only 300 meters from the small town of Santa Elena, the commercial center of Monteverde, as you drive in from the Pan-American Highway. Here you will find unique, breathtaking views of the local waterfalls right out back with a private trail. The Tilaran mountain range where both, the Santa Elena and Monteverde Cloud Forest reserves are located, the Ecological Sanctuary, the San Luis Valley and the spectacular Gulf of Nicoya, all at one location. All rooms equipped with large windows to enjoy the beautiful scenery of Monteverde and the surrounding areas. We have two styles of rooms, rustic and modern. Beds are outfitted with therapeutic mattresses and hypo-allergenic sheets and comforters. Breakfasts are prepared and served right before your eyes. Come and visit us and feel like being on vacation in the comfort of your own home.

Good morning! It's almost impossible to predict the weather in Monteverde but this time of year normal conditions should be sunny and slight cool breeze in the morning with possible thunderstorms from noon til early afternoon. I know that sounds very general but that's about the best the weather service can give us and personal experience.

Wifi available?
Yes, WiFi is available and free on the entire property. What we cannot be responsible for is services outages from our ISP due to weather conditions which is sometimes the case in Monteverde.

I know in the past you've allowed RV camping, do you still?
Good afternoon! Yes we do but it depends greatly on the size of the RV and the dates. We recently added several rooms so parking space is limited so on a date where we would be close to capacity it would be difficult to accommodate an RV if most of our guests arrive by automobile.

I don't think they do but there is a fan in the room. It is very cool at night and no air conditioning is needed. When are you traveling? This property is very clean. I have been staying here for the past three years when I come to Monteverde.
