Cozy B&B and Butterfly garden.

Bed & Breakfast - Private room · Montezuma-Delicias Rd, Montezuma, Puntarenas 60111, Costa Rica

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!

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!

The Space

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!

Guest Access

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.

The Neighborhood

This is a very laid back beach area. Lots of things to explore, and plenty of good food downtown.

Getting around

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!

  • I was only at Mariposario for a couple days, but it only took a moment to see that Josh and the crew have a really wonderful energy.

    The hotel is great, really nicely decorated, the a/c in the room is wonderful after a day of exploring the beaches and other cool areas around Montezuma. The butterfly garden isn't huge, but it is beautiful. The walk down to town is about ten minutes, but the hill is really steep, so you might want to cab back up, it only costs 2000 colones.

    Finally, Josh was really great and made sure I had everything I needed. Suzanne was very sweet and helped me get a can set up for really early when I had to leave. Ivan was great to talk to and told me about some fun spots to check out in Montezuma.

    Oh! And the breakfast was great. There is a beautiful seating area on the deck looking into the jungle, wonderful way to wake up. Thanks gang, I really appreciated the vibe up there.

  • We stayed at Mariposario, during our time in Montezuma. This was one of the best affordable places we have stayed. The beds and rooms are nice, there is a great vibe, everyone is very nice and helpful, good exercise walking to town, and breakfast is the best. The butterfly garden is really neat and the owner is very knowledgeable about it and almost any other thing you want to know about Costa Rica. We would definitely stay here again!

  • I've stayed at many different hotels and B&B's, and while some were better, I think none really felt like home as Mariposario. I think Mariposario doesn't strive to be a 5*, and it shouldn't. It's perfect the way it is. The staff is friendly and always ready to help. The place itself is very clean and reasonably priced. During our stay of 4 nights we enjoyed waking up to a different breakfast, which was really tasty every time. On our third morning, while we were enjoying coffee, we saw a large group of white faced monkeys, which was at that moment a big deal for us. From what I understood this happens fairly regularly. The place is about 10 minute walk from the village, and we enjoyed a bit of a walk after dinner. Needless to say, we had a great stay at Mariposario B&B. Many thanks to Josh, Mary and others for making us feel at home. We'll be back!

  • It was a very pleasent stay at Mariposario. They are located in a very quiet place in the middle of Nature in Montezuma and still only 10min walk from the center! The service was fantastic: they came to pick us up since we were not finding the place and did even let me house a super powerful hair dryer! I would definitely come back to this place!
