Where to begin! Mariposa is an absolute delight to stay in! Esteban is a gracious host and his family go out of their way to ensure all your needs are met and your comfort is a top priority. The rooms border some forest where we spotted owl, Motmot, opossum, squirrel, toucan, a family of coati, and numerous beautiful insects and...

If you are planning to stay in or near Monteverde, but don't want the hustle and bustle of busy Santa Elena centre, this might very well be for you. It is best to have a 4x4 to get to this B&B and the Monteverde cloud forest reserve, but maybe it is doable with a normal car. I would just not...

This is a lovely peaceful lodge, the rooms are spotless and the Monteverde coffee in the room is amazing. We did not have a car so used Interbus to get to and from Monteverde who dropped us off and picked us up from the lodge so that was easy. We walked to both the Monteverde and Curi Cancha reserves from...

My wife and I stayed 2 nights at the Mariposa B&B and we loved it. Location was easy to find with Google Maps and Map.me. Location: We drove through Monteverde, then 5 more minutes on gravel road and their sign is clearly displayed to left side of road. You drive up a steep paved drive where there is parking on...

Breakfast was very nice, pleasantly and promptly served to us by Esteban. Great start to the day with options for hot and cold drinks, cooked breakfast or granola option all served with fresh fruit. Our room...
