Camino Verde B&B is a "Bed and Breakfast" style lodging opened in 2009 and located on the edge of Santa Elena. The B&B is laid out in the style of a family house and guests are encouraged to treat it as their home. The building was in fact once the owner\'s family home which gave inspiration to this "'Tica House" designed hotel.
The B&B is situated a 5 minute walk from the town centre of Santa Elena, but is far enough away for it to be quiet and have more rural surroundings. This is the perfect option for those who crave the quiet side of the countryside but who require the amenities provided in a town.
Camino Verde B&B comprises private rooms which sleep 2 to 4 guests. Four of the rooms have shared bathroom facilities and the rest are en suite. For the rooms with private bathroom the prices are $25 for one person, $35 for a double, triple $45 and quadruple $55. Rooms with shared bathroom costs $15 for a single and $20 for a double. All prices include breakfast and tax.
There is a kitchen and a communal area here which B&B guests are welcome to use. Here there is a computer with internet connection, plus Wifi is available for guests with routers in the communal areas of both the B&B and Tina\'s Casitas.
Breakfast is free for all guests and is served from 6am until 9am. However the staff are very flexible and an earlier breakfast or packed-breakfast can be arranged if you have an early morning tour, just give them prior warning the evening before. There are three options for breakfast: the first is the typical Tico dish of eggs, rice and beans and toast; the second is fried or scrambled eggs with toast; the third is a fruit platter served with toast. Real coffee and orange juice is also available for every guest.
Check-out time is 10am but guests are welcome to use the communal areas all day if they have a late bus to catch. Camino Verde also offers a luggage storage service.
The friendly staff on reception are also experienced tour agents so can give out impartial advice on all the local companies. Furthermore they can share their countrywide knowledge of Costa Rica and organise any ongoing travel. Upon arrival at the hotel they give all guests a map of Monteverde and mark out all the different tours and activities that various companies offer in the area. This way guests learn about what is available to them and can suss out how long they might like to stay for. If required they can create "pick and mix" packages of various activities to suit each individual.

Thank you Andres for all your helpful information while we were planning our holiday in Monteverde, and also once we arrived at Camino Verde. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in your accommodation and we highly recommend it.
Had an outstanding stay at Camino Verde with Andres. I'd mentioned to him that we would be staying on our honeymoon, and he & his staff went well out of their way to put swan-shaped towels on our bed, a heart shaped out of rose petals on a towel in our bathroom and a complimentary bottle of wine replete with two glasses.
The location is very accessible to the town of St. Elena, which is a big plus. It made it easy to arrive to the place & check-in, be able to shop & get the things we needed during our stay, and easily access outbound travel upon our departure.
The affordable price point was a plus for us as well, and quite frankly, we spent more money up the hill at another location where we spent considerably more and got considerably less. The bang-for-the-buck value that we received at Camino Verde was outstanding, and the service that we received throughout our stay from Andres and his very friendly & helpful front-of-house staff was most appreciated.
Andres, Maria and Jose were great! They made us feel very comfortable and welcome.
They also booked all four of our adventures,
You should do the Tarzan Swing !
Andres and Jose were great hosts. We were greeted warmly and given all the information we needed regarding surrounding areas. Each morning we were suit a delicious breakfast of our choosing. Jose was always available to help us with booking tours, calling taxis or shuttles or anything else that we might need. The rooms were clean and nicely decorated. We enjoyed our stay at Camino Verde bed-and-breakfast. Thanks a lot guys!
Jose was very welcoming when we arrived and helped us book all our activities while we were in Monteverde. I was a little surprised when we arrived to know that we would be staying at a hotel next door called Hotel Atardecer, which provided similar accommodations as pictured in the photos, but no access to wifi from the rooms, only the common areas. This was slightly disappointing, but overall our experience was positive here.
Great hosts, great location. The view, the kitchen and dining room, and the employees were all excellent. We stayed here four nights and the staff couldn't have been more accommodating. We would definitely stay here again.
Good location and very friendly/helpful staff. Everything was good except our beds smelled a bit sour.
