Santa Elena Rainbow Valley Lodge

OK I'm going to be in S Jose for a wk. Thinking of coming in a few days early to visit this area. I know Interbus goes to Monteverde but is there any shared shuttle type transport from San Jose or the Airport going to Santa Elena close to RVL? Is the area worth the trip with just 2 full days to spend? Thanks in advance for any insight.

Rainbow Valley Lodge is situated close to the road between just before Santa Elena. Excellent place with fantastiic owner. Monteverde area has plenty to offer and with two full days you will have time to enjoy its specific beauties.

Thank you both! RA not so much the inscets ;- ) have those here in Florida...but the peace and quiet, clean air and a day tour are appealing. I read such fantastic reviews...think I will give it a try. I kept trying to convince myself to stay closer to the city this trip but RVL feels right even if it will be the rainy season in October! Now hoping there is an opening.
