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.
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.
A great place for travelers who do not want to be in the center of Montezuma, but want to feel they are out in the country. There is a back path to an awesome waterfall and there is a butterfly garden right there. The staff was wonderful and very knowledgeable about the local area. The public spaces are pleasant with monkeys in the trees right off the deck. The breakfasts were the best we had in Costa Rica.
It is a steep walk from the center of town...we usually walked down and took the inexpensive taxi back up.
Would go back in a (email hidden)ally liked it there.
I guess Montezuma just wasn't our thing. We like to do things just the two of us, relax and being in nature. We didn't really find this here.
The B&B felt more like a dorm to us. It was quite loud at night, people were up until late so we had some short nights. The breakfast was fine though and you can use the communal kitchen if you want. The room was as described, we were a bit disappointed by the butterfly garden, there weren't a lot of butterflies when we were there.
Montezuma is a real backpackers town, with a hippie vibe. The beaches are a bit crowded, but you have the chance of seeing baby turtles, which is awesome! If you feel like hanging out with a lot of free spirited people, this is the place for you. It just wasn't for us.
The Mariposario represented our last stay of a three week vacation and it was a good way to cap off a great trip. The staff at the Mariposario are all wonderfully friendly and helpful and the room is very comfortable with A/C and our own shower. The breakfasts were delicious and the butterfly garden is very peaceful and beautiful. Close by are several nice waterfalls and some fun hiking/climbing. The town at the bottom of the hill has many food options and a ton of tours leave from there on a regular basis.
We loved this B&B and it is was great value. When you enter, you get the feeling of serenity. Everyone is in a good mood and enjoying what they are doing.
All of the staff were extremely friendly and accommodating. The rooms were very clean, the bed was comfortable, and even have A/C and TV's with satellite reception. I was able to watch an NFL playoff game one evening. Wifi worked well. The breakfast was delicious.
We also enjoyed seeing the butterfly garden, which is free for guests. They even had some other wildlife to view such as a scorpion, and a blacklight for you to view it under.
The staff let us know when some butterflies in the garden were exiting the chrysalis (I learned what that is) so we could go out and take a look. We ended up learning a lot.
We also enjoyed the free hike out the back to view the waterfall. We wish we could have stayed longer!
