Interaction with Guests
We will greed guest at the time of arrival, and show them around the house. I will also be available to help guest setup for local attractions.
National Geographic called the Monteverde Cloud Forest Reserve "the jewel in the crown of cloud forest reserves".
The town of Monteverde was originally settled by a group of Quakers that came to Costa Rica in the early 50s because the country had recently abolished the army. Quakers object to war, by principle, and are now considered conscientious objectors, but at the time they were being drafted, or being sent to prison for refusing to fight for their country.
They were also responsible for the first conservation efforts, originally to try and preserve the water source. Soon biologist visiting friends and family discovered the unique biodiversity of the plants and animals of the cloud forest, and soon a more formal and widespread conservation movement took off.
The main local non-profit thru which the international effort was channeled is the Monteverde Conservation League, now responsible for purchasing a lot of land to be preserved for perpetuity. One of their visitors center is Ben also known as Bajo Tigre. Our house is basically right on the entrance to Bajo Tigre.
4 Wheel drive is recommended since the roads are not paved. It is also possible to take a bus from Puntarenas or San Jose, or a shuttle service, like Interbus, from most locations in Costa Rica. Taxis are available in town for getting around locally, and most attractions include transportation.
Other Things to Note
I´ll be glad to help guest with questions regarding all the local attractions, and will also help make arrangements to visit them.
We expect our guest to be respectful of the property and neighbors. No smoking indoors, no parties…
