Camino Verde B&B is a "Bed and Breakfast" style lodging opened in 2009 and located on the edge of Santa Elena. The B&B is laid out in the style of a family house and guests are encouraged to treat it as their home. The building was in fact once the owner\'s family home which gave inspiration to this ¨Tica House¨ designed hotel.
The B&B is situated a 5 minute walk from the town centre of Santa Elena, but is far enough away for it to be quiet and have more rural surroundings. This is the perfect option for those who crave the quiet side of the countryside but who require the amenities provided in a town.
Camino Verde B&B comprises private rooms which sleep 2 to 4 guests. Four of the rooms have shared bathroom facilities and the rest are en suite. For the rooms with private bathroom the prices are $33 for one person, $44 for a double, triple $55 and quadruple $66. Rooms with shared bathroom costs $23 for a single and $33 for a double. All prices include breakfast and tax.
Breakfast is free for all guests and is served from 6:30am until 8:30 am. There are three options for breakfast: the first is the typical Tico dish of eggs, rice and beans and toast; the second is fried or scrambled eggs with toast; the third is a fruit platter served with toast. Real coffee and orange juice is also available for every guest.
Check-out time is 11 am but guests are welcome to use the communal areas all day if they have a late bus to catch. Camino Verde also offers a luggage storage service.
The friendly staff on reception are also experienced tour agents so can give out impartial advice on all the local companies. Furthermore they can share their countrywide knowledge of Costa Rica and organize any ongoing travel. Upon arrival at the hotel they give all guests a map of Monteverde and mark out all the different tours and activities that various companies offer in the area. This way guests learn about what is available to them and can suss out how long they might like to stay for. If required they can create "pick and mix" packages of various activities to suit each individual.

The host made us feel comfortable and hospitable. We were expecting a private kitchen in our room but it was a shared kitchen. The pictures seemed to indicate the former.
We had such a great time in Drake Bay, even though we drove in with a Corolla. That was not a good idea. The little cabin was clean and all we really needed to sleep and shower. Our hosts were super kind and helpful. Carlos even took us on a walk through Corcovado Rainforest and it was so informational and gorgeous. We would definitely return!
You must stay here if you plan on going to Monteverde! Jose was our host and we booked all our activities through him. He is very organized and was spot on with his recommendations. We personally enjoyed the night tour and the ficus tree (they weren't even on our to-do list) and highly recommend these activities as well as the zip lining. The breakfast is very good, the rooms are nice and the beer is cheap ;) thanks Jose!
We stayed at Camino Verde for three nights. The best part about this stay was our host and the staff. Everything is well organized - especially the tours and all the staff are great. The free breakfast comes with a range of options and its pretty good. We stayed at other places where the breakfast was similar but not as good. The place has a good vibe and had a great group of people staying at the time.
Camino Verde was a great place to stay, with a lovely view from our room at Hotel Atardecer. The gallo pinto at breakfast was delicious!
