Far above the crystalline beaches of Costa Rica, among the peaks of the Tilarán Mountains, lie the mystical cloud forests of Monteverde.
It is an otherworldly place shrouded in low-lying mists pushed silently through the forest foliage by an ever-present mountain breeze. Monteverde’s remarkable climate spans the Continental Divide giving life to thousands of rare plants and animal species from both the Pacific and Atlantic hemispheres.
The region’s first settlers—followed by scores of biologists and scientists—understood the area’s profound biological importance and created the Monteverde and Santa Elena Reserves to protect its natural treasures. Monteverde Cloud Forest Lodge lies directly between the two, within the Bellbird Biological Corridor.
In addition to it´s 25 suites, the lodge has a main house and restaurant, , an outdoor bar and fire pit, extensive walking trails, and elevated platforms for viewing wildlife. The property even encompasses its own private 23-hectare nature reserve, home to Costa Rica’s Original Zipline and Canopy Tour, offering a thrilling treetop perspective of the cloud forest.
Our suites occupy luxury cabins with wide private terraces positioned to take in the gardens and natural surroundings. Guests enjoy plush pillow-top beds, imported linens, gourmet Costa Rican coffee, nightly turndown service, soft bathrobes, and free WiFi. An ambiance of tranquility and peace permeates the property with birdsong and the warm aroma of a wood fireplace a constant companion.
