Monteverde Lodge

Monteverde, Costa Rica

The winding paths of Monteverde Lodge’s beautifully manicured gardens are flanked by ferns and bromeliads, and a stream, pond, and small waterfall provide a habitat for riverine birds and a host of reptiles and amphibians. The elegant dining room, with its cloud forest mural and abundant tropical flora, offers excellent Costa Rican specialties, and a large Jacuzzi is available to unwind in after an active day exploring the cloud forest. Spacious rooms with private bath have two double beds with fluffy comforters and large windows, and are designed to put you “in the forest”—there are no TVs!
