About
Description
Surround yourself with nature. "El Bosque" means "The Forest" We are a small family hotel nestled in a 23-acre private forest. That's why we are quiet, peaceful and excellent for a retreat to connect with More nature. We're exceptionally friendly and our rooms are simple but reasonably priced. Our location is very convenient (4.5 stars in TripAdvisor): -The original Monteverde Reserve is only 3km (1.9 miles) away -We have two restaurants within our property -The Monteverde Coffee Center, a Wholefood Store and CASEM (Women Artisan's Cooperative) are just a 2-minutes walk -Stella (the most famous bakery in Monteverde) is a 3-minutes walk -Cafe Bure (Argentinian Coffee Shop / Restaurant featuring an astounding view to the Nicoya's Gulf) is a 5-minutes walk -The Curicancha Reserve and the Monteverde Cheese Factory are a 10-minute walk Less
