The hotel is very convenient in relation to sights and restaurants and yet in the middle of the forest. Unfortunately, the bungalows are really poorly built and decayed. The own "trail" is also expired and unsecured. Worst of all was the attempt to us with...More

About
Description
Surround yourself with nature. "El Bosque" means "The Forest" We are a small family hotel nestled in a 23-acre private forest. That's why we are quiet, peaceful and excellent for a retreat to connect with More nature. We're exceptionally friendly and our rooms are simple but reasonably priced. Our location is very convenient (4.5 stars in TripAdvisor): -The original Monteverde Reserve is only 3km (1.9 miles) away -We have two restaurants within our property -The Monteverde Coffee Center, a Wholefood Store and CASEM (Women Artisan's Cooperative) are just a 2-minutes walk -Stella (the most famous bakery in Monteverde) is a 3-minutes walk -Cafe Bure (Argentinian Coffee Shop / Restaurant featuring an astounding view to the Nicoya's Gulf) is a 5-minutes walk -The Curicancha Reserve and the Monteverde Cheese Factory are a 10-minute walk Less
