I stayed at la Casona, this is the lodging right at the entrance of Monteverde CLoud Forest Biological Reserve, they own this Albergue too, rates are excellent and they include 3 meals and entrance to the reserve, but the best is yet to come, once all tourists leave, around 4:00 p.m, and specially when it gets dark, you have that wonderful cloud forest just for you...amazing sensation!!!! Is the only lodging in all Monteverde where you actually sleep almost inside de forest. The rooms are basic, but you don´t need more, you can share a room with shared bathroom (hostel like) or you can choose a private room, whith private bathroom, with hot water. This is really UNIQUE, the best experience in monteverde, if you are visiting the area, don´t miss this reserve and stay the the CASONA.

Thank you for your comments, we really do an effort to offer good services and we feel glad that you enjoyed being so close to the forest, this is very unique for La Casona, no other lodge offers staying almost inside this beautiful and important cloud forest. Hope you can come back and visit us again soon.

While my friend and I could have chosen any hotel in the area, we decided for a more unconventional option and stayed at the Monteverde Reserve. The Reserve has its own lodging giving you free access to the park at any time. For $64 a person, we had our own room and all of our meals were included. We were expecting just buffet style food, but we actually had some of the best meals while at the park.

Everyone was extremely friendly and we were greeted immediately upon arrival by one of the park guides. Also, all of the proceeds go directly toward the park.

The room is very basic (more like a camp), but that is all you need for Monteverde.

For more information, click here: http://www.cct.or.cr/english/reserva_monteverde/tarifas.php

Note: You pay in cash or debit card upon arrival and you simply reserve by e-mail.

Prices includes: 3 meals, entrance to the park, which is normally $8-10
$53 bed + shared bathroom
$64 bed + private bathroom

HINT: Take the night tour at the park - well worth it and we saw some cool animals )nectar bats, snakes, tarantula, etc). It's $17 and lasts about 3 hours!

Room Tip: Book a room by e-mail and pay at the front desk when you get there. The prices are fixed and it's a great deal!

Thank you very much for your nice comments, we feel glad that you found the value of this lodge, with the rate all the meals are included and they are very good, also entrrance to the famous Cloud Forest as many times you wish to go in. It is defenetely a very good option if you want to be close to nature.
