Monteverde Lodge

Immerse yourself in nature at Monteverde Lodge, a relaxed, 31-room property located near Costa Rica’s famous Monteverde Cloud Forest.

With beautiful grounds and easy access to superb hiking trails and a range of adventurous activities, this is a fantastic forest retreat for the whole family.

Facilities & Activities

Nature lovers are spoilt for choice here. You need not even leave the lodge for wildlife watching if you don’t want to – the gardens are packed with ferns, orchids and hydrangeas and home to everything from Emerald Toucanets to White-Faced Monkeys. There’s also a solar-heated pool in the grounds, hammocks and a yoga and meditation lookout point.

A range of activities can be booked through the lodge, including guided cloud forest hikes, horse riding and ziplining. Foodies should book onto a local coffee and chocolate tour, while children will love learning about the residents of a nearby frog pond during a 45-minute night tour. Massage therapies are also available at the lodge from 10am-7pm, with treatments using products made from organic oils produced in the Costa Rican mountains.
