A comfy space right up the hill from the beach in Montezuma. We are fortunate to be a short hike from the upper Montezuma waterfalls, and that puts us between two river valleys that the monkeys wander through. Come enjoy the tropics with us!
Our basic rooms are simple, but comfortable, with Air/conditioning, private bathrooms, Satellite TV, and free wifi in the house. Guests also enjoy a full homecooked breakfast, and unlimited access to our butterfly garden. Check our calendar for the lower rates are offered for daily, weekly, and monthly stays in our low season!! If our basic rooms are booked, contact us for the balcony room availability!
You have full access to the house, your own private room with a private bathroom and A/C, wireless internet, and helpful staff that will give you the inside scoop on the area.
Interaction with Guests
We have been living here in the jungle by the sea for over 8 years, so we have lots of lifestyle tips. There will be interns working at the house to help you with activities and plans, and we live on the other side of the property, which makes us available at any time for your needs or questions.
This is a very laid back beach area. Lots of things to explore, and plenty of good food downtown.
We are located up a steep hill, so many people either hoof it for the exercise, or rent ATV's or 4x4 rental cars. Even if you do go for the exercise, doing a ATV rental for a day or two really opens up the rest of the peninsula.
Other Things to Note
We are also offering low weekly and monthly rates during certain times of the year, please feel free to check the calendar for low prices for extended stays!
We do have two dogs on the property, so please let us know if you are thinking of bringing a pet, which can be a challenge in the jungle. We don't allow smoking in the house, but there is a designated smokers hang out on the property.
This is the second review I am writing because we liked it so much that we returned for a second week in our same trip! We felt so welcomed and enjoyed the warmth and care of the staff here. It is a place that is bubbling with new ideas and an openness is explain their wealth of knowledge on all subjects relating to the environment from butterflies to scorpians to craft beer. We had the pleasure of sharing our music twice for small live concerts and that too was very enjoyable.
We enjoyed staying at Mariposario, the room was clean and comfortable. Also very good breakfast and Ryan makes himself very respectable quality beers. I recommend it a lot !
Thank you guys !

Prior to arriving, the communication with the host was very efficient with a fast response time. Directions and descriptions were very clear. Upon arrival my friend and I were welcomed by a very friendly girl who we later learned was volunteering there. She was very informative and knowledgeable about the area and answered all of our many questions. They were not kidding about the steep hill leading up to their driveway, but taxis were very reasonably priced to and from the main part of town.
The room was small but all we needed. Clean with a great air conditioner! Breakfast there was amazing! Everything was so tasty and fresh. The owners wife helped us the first morning and again, was very informative about the property and the area. She told us about the butterfly garden, which was very breathtaking. She encouraged us to go that morning because we might be able to catch a butterfly emerging, and sure enough we did! Josh, one of the owners was very nice as well and again, very informative and helpful. I definitely plan to return here on future trips to Montezuma!
They brew their own beer! It is delicious! You must try it while you are there! The cream ale was our favorite!
We so enjoyed our stay at Mariposario. We felt very welcomed by Josh, Pauline and Ryan who own and run the place. So much to see and learn in their lovely butterfly garden and their budding micro brewery with excellent craft beers. The breakfasts were delicious and the very personal, friendly and warm staff made us feel right at home. Our room was comfortable and cheery. We loved all of it ; so much so that we are returning for another week on this trip. Be prepared to deal with the 3 steep hills that you must traverse to get to this lovely place. We got in shape quickly. My only suggestion would be some reliable shuttle to get back and forth to town even if it is prescheduled and guests need to work around that schedule.
We really enjoyed our stay at Mariposario. The staff was very helpful and friendly and knew the area of Montezuma very well. The breakfast was wonderful with juice, eggs and other Costa Rican food. The room was clean and had a good airco. A nice extra is the butterfly garden, which guests can use for free. All in all the people of Mariposario made our stay in Montezuma careless and we really felt at home.
Accueil chaleureux, chambre propre et avec du charme. Le petit déj est préparée par une super cuisinière! B&B situé sur les hauteurs de Montezuma au calme.
This was a very nice place to stay, clean and very comfortable. All the staff were great and helpful with all our questions. And of course we must mention the outstanding breakfast every morning that was always different and excellent. The other great thing was the monkey's coming and steeling sugar packs from the tables and sitting in the tree beside you eating them and lacking there fingers.
