Monteverde is set within the lush, cloud-forested mountains of Costa Rica’s Central Highlands. Visitors will likely enjoy the outdoor activities that Monteverde is known for—namely, hikes through inspiring cloud forests (both at day and night), walks along canopy-level suspension bridges, and tours of high-flying zip-lines. Horseback riding is pleasant in the early morning, a time when many birds can be seen, and trips to the local museums will teach visitors about bats, butterflies, frogs, orchids and more.
The Swiss Hotel Miramontes is set on a piece of property that is surrounded by pine trees and blooming tropical flowers. Its accommodations are warm, wooden and spacious. Paintings and murals decorate the walls, and many rooms have small tables for sitting, eating, writing or reading. All rooms come equipped with a private bathroom and hot water shower, and some rooms have porches and a cable TV. All accommodations at the Miramontes offer guests a wonderful place to rest and relax after long walks through Monteverde’s spectacular cloud forest reserves.
The hotel has a restaurant that serves both national and international cuisine, including dishes that hail from such places as Switzerland, Austria, France and Italy. A free breakfast is offered here every morning.
Guests are invited to peruse the hotel’s orchids garden – which holds over 200 species – and butterfly collection. There is a library on hand for guests that are in need of a book, as well as a free shuttle to Santa Elena.
