This was our favourite place to stay during our time travelling around Costa Rica. Our upper cabin had beautiful views overlooking the forested valley, with wildlife often venturing close to the door. It was clean and comfortable, and came with a small kitchen (microwave, skillet, fridge, coffee maker etc) so we could pack chopped fruit and sandwiches bought locally to take for snacks during our cloudforest walks. It’s located at the edge of Monteverde so it was nice and quiet at night, but only 5 mins from the town centre (~1000 colones by taxi). The owner, Rolf, couldn’t be more helpful. He was great at getting back to our emails when we booked our stay, and was a fantastic host, providing us with discount vouchers at good restaurants and attractions in Monteverde. The guide, Rafa, that Rolf arranged for us at Monteverde cloud forest was fantastic, and made it the most memorable day of our 3 week holiday. We can’t praise the place enough – can’t wait to return.
