At 4,600 feet (1400 meters) above sea level, located next to the Cloud Forest, the Monteverde Lodge offers luxurious and comfortable accommodation on your Costa Rica tour. The Lodge has quiet, lush gardens to relax in after a day of discovering the area or just to enjoy your morning and the views, sipping some tasty "Cafe Monteverde". Situated just outside the small town of Santa Elena, the Monteverde Lodge is conveniently close to the center and not far from attractions in Monteverde either.
The remote little village of Monteverde is mostly known for its majestic Cloud Forests. These forests, which are subject to mist and clouds year round, have an incredible rich flora and fauna and are shrouded in a mystic atmosphere. Walk around and discover their beauty and if you're lucky you might see the Resplendent Quetzal, other exquisite types of birds and maybe even some mammals. The area has other types of forest as well, that are equally interesting to visit, giving you an idea of the great biodiversity in Monteverde. If you're done hiking, there are various educational tours available like a Coffee Tour or the Monteverde Cheese Factory tour or you could challenge yourself on a Canopy zip line tour and fly through the tree tops.
The Monteverde Lodge is committed to keeping the tourism impact on the environment as low as possible by recycling, using solar panels and high efficiency lighting and water-saving fixtures. The restaurant at the lodge offers a combination of delicious local and international dishes, all with an "haute-cuisine" touch. After dinner the inviting fire place next to the bar is a good spot to unwind.

The trip was terrific with great planning on your part. Most of the adventures were not mainstream and somewhat off the beaten path which made it especially enjoyable!! We felt taken care of and you all were readily available to respond to questions and issues. I would highly recommend your company and friends have already expressed interest based on our pictures and excitement.
