About this listing
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.
I don't think I could say enough wonderful things about this place. My boyfriend and I decided to stay here on a whim, seriously only because the place we wanted to stay wasn't available for our entire trip and I had a good feeling about the Mariposario. I was right!
First of all, air conditioning. Awesome. The rooms are simple, but more than enough. Second, access to the waterfall. So easy, it's almost cheating. Third, incredible staff. All friendly, welcoming, and accommodating. Super cool people. Then, THE BEER. After spending a month and a half in Costa Rica working on my grad school fieldwork, I was so grateful for non-pilsner beer, as much as I love a cold Pilsen. The cream ale was my favorite. Last but not least, the food. Truly incredible and both of our favorites in Montezuma, which is saying something considering we spent 6 days there and ate out for nearly every meal. We even walked up the steep hills after moving hotels, just to eat here again! Delicious free breakfast too, which changes daily and never failed to impress.
In a nutshell, this place would be perfect if it were a *little* closer to town/the beach. But that being said, I still wish we'd stayed here longer!
Lovely place. Great people. Good wifi. Close to the beach and the waterfalls with a car. The butterfly garden is very sweet
Overall, we had a very nice time at the Butterfly B&B. The place was clean, the room was well equipped with amenities and AC and the breakfasts were wonderful. We were disappointed however that the listing said there would be a kitchen but in reality the kitchen is not really available to guests (just a very small amount of fridge space). Overall I recommend the B&B and make sure to get a tour of the butterfly garden (free for guests) while you are there.
Our (email hidden) and Butterfly Garden was wonderful. Everyone was very helpful and kind to us. They helped us plan our zip lining, ATVs and our boat taxi. It was very very helpful and great that everyone was willing to help us out for whatever we needed. The room was nice and had air conditioner , great restaurant inside and wonderful cooks and breakfast and dinner! The city of Montezuma was great experience and was quiet , nice people and gorgeous beaches. Our favorite was the Playa Grande since it was more secluded.
A very nice place to be. In the centre of the junge, with a bar looking over/in to it. Very nice crew, they can help you planning a tour. Its located on walking distance of the town center. The rooms are not big, but it's enough, airco is great and the bathroom is also fine. We spend a lot of time in the bar, drinking there homebrewed beer. The included breakfast was perfect.
Lovely place, very friendly and helpful staff. The restaurant is amazing, we couldn't help but eat there every night, the food was so good. They also have there own home brewed beer. All in all our stay was wonderful, we would definitely recommend to friends and would stay there again.
Sehr nette und offene Leute, die uns geduldig und hilfsbereit mit Tipps und guter Laune begleitet haben. Das essen im neuen Restaurant ist frisch und lecker. Gute Musik! Idyllischer schmetterlingsgarten neben der hotelartigen Unterkunft.
