Nature enthusiasts will enjoy hikes in Monteverde’s cloud forests. While walking along the reserve’s trails or suspension bridges, stop to examine the soaring, plant-covered trees and search for monkeys or sloths along their intricate limbs. Visits to the area’s cultural attractions – including museums, coffee plantations, and the Monteverde Cheese Factory – are sure to entertain, as are a number of other diversions, including horseback rides, mountain bike trips, and zip line tours.
Hotel Las Orquideas (whose name translates into “Orchids Hotel”) is quaint and cozy. The spacious rooms are lined with wood paneling and have large windows that look out onto the surrounding area. All have comfortable orthopedic mattresses and private hot water bathrooms that are decorated with authentic Spanish ceramics.
The hotel grounds provide guests with wonderful views of the Gulf of Nicoya and Pacific Ocean in the distance. What’s more, there is a private trail leading to an impressive waterfall—a spot that is perfect for photographing or picnicking.
The hotel offers both private parking and laundry services for its guests. Additionally, cooking can be done in the communal kitchen area, making it easy to purchase food at the grocery store and eat on the cheap.
