Why visit Monteverde?
For sure to be impressed by the unique Cloud Forest.
But here you can also learn much about plants and animals on Day and Night Tours with professional naturalist Guides.
Visiting the Frog Pond, the Serpentarium and Reptile House, the Orquid Garden and the Butterfly Garden, going on a Coffee Tour or a Gold Tour could be a special experience that you will never forget.
Get adrenaline on one of the Canopy Tours with their biggest amount of highest and longest ziplines of Costa Rica!
Or get a different view of the Cloud Forest from high above on the suspension bridges.
Horseback riding on sane horses and playing with monkeys is another special...
We had a great time in Monteverde! Andres and Jose are quick, kind, and dependable. They helped us arrange travel and activities throughout our visit. The staff are great, serving up nice breakfasts and keeping the rooms tidy. The room itself was cozy and quiet, and the view from the common areas is quite pretty.
Great helpful hosts. Inexpensive. Good breakfasts. Lots of perks. Wi-go always worked. Clean. Interesting other guests. More like a hostel than bnb.
Tina's Casitas are adorable and immaculately clean--the interiors look like little cabins/houses, and look even better than the photos. I only stayed for one night, but in that time, someone was always available to answer questions. Within quick walking distance to town center. Am going to recommend this place to friends who are visiting Monteverde!
Tinas Casitas/Camino Verde is a super comfortable, well-located bed and breakfast in Santa Elena. This isn't the lap of luxury, but it's definitely got all the essentials -- even laundry, which we didn't find anywhere else in Costa Rica. Andres and Jose are the best -- very helpful, knowledgeable and friendly, and will set you up with tours for whatever you want to do in Monteverde. Their family used to live on the site that's now Tinas Casitas -- it's a really great space. Breakfast is simple, but you can't beat free!!
The best place to stay in Monteverde. The location, grounds, room, and hosts Andres and Jose were all as good as good be. I highly recommend Tina's Casitas to anyone looking for a place to stay in the area.
Great place to stay and just a couple of minutes from downtown. Andres and Jose were also very helpful with organizing things for us to do!
We had a great time here. Andres was super friendly and helpful, gave us great advice for activities in the area as well as onward travel. The place had a real nice vibe to it, hanging out in the common areas we met great people and shared stories. Definitely stay here!
Jose cracked me up. room was clean. we had a blast in the rainforest!!!
This was a great hostel. The rooms were comfortable and the common room was a great place to meet people from all over the world. The free breakfast was really great and Andres and Jose were very helpful booking a hiking tour and canopy zip line. (Do Extreme Canopy for the best adrenaline rush.) The only frustration was that we had to pay cash for all of the tours and beers at the end of the weekend. Wish we could have used credit cards.
Andres and Gomez seem to be nice people but unfortunately for us
the rooms were undesirable. The rooms had insects all over
and got bitten badly and what bothered most was the smell of toilet
probably from the common bathroom tho ours was private.
The alternate room that was provided promptly was even worse as it appeared that the drainage was recently snaked and ahd to put up with the same for 2 more nites.
