Clean, comfortable, tasteful rooms with a modern feel. The dinner and breakfast we had at the restaurant were delicious and the home brewed beer was outstanding. The restaurant has an open area with marvelous views over the garden and special light effects at night. The butterfly garden is a real treat to visit. Very friendly people working here. It was a pleasure.

Our stay was fantastic! The micro brews tasted great as did the breakfast. We especially loved eating with monkeys every morning. We wish we had more time to tour the butterfly garden. The staff was friendly and knowledgable about the. area. We definitely want to come back and recommend this place to anyone thinking of staying here.

The Mariposario is a true gem. With free access to the butterfly conservatory and a restaurant on site with breakfast included, this was well worth our stay. Breakfast was delicious and I learned so much about local life and sustainability efforts talking to Douglas and Ana. There are only 4 rooms, rooms are clean cute and simple. Huge shower with hot water though with such warm weather a cool shower is by far more refreshing. I would definitely stay here again. Gracias por todo. Nos vemos

We loved everyone there! Such great food and hospitality. We actually walked up the hills with backpacks to get there, but think thrice if it is not something you'd do, but adventure it up if ya want! Enjoy the food! Such a great time here. Super close to the waterfalls and beach. So relaxing. Can't wait to come back!

Fun place to stay. Far enough out of Montezuma that it is quiet but close enough to enjoy the town. Meals were excellent. Restaurant on site was terrific.

I just loved the aura of this quaint little Inn. It provided such a peaceful and relaxing time for our stay in Montezuma. I can't say enough about the staff at the Maraposario. First of all Ryan was so helpful prior to our visit with so much valuable information about the area. Anna was such a pleasure to talk to and shared such great stories about the inn and what goes on around Montezuma. And the assistance with booking our tours and calling for taxis was wonderful. The free breakfast was a huge bonus! The food in the Clandestina was amazing and Phoebe took such good care of us. Overall we had a great time and will recommend this place to other travellers.
