I loved staying at this little lodge. The rooms were cozy, ours had comfortable bunk beds, and were clean. The lodge has shared bathrooms but I never had any trouble getting in a shower (however I did have a large beetle as company). There are...More

I traveled to Monteverde to capture the serenity and beauty that this little mountain community has to offer, so La Colina was the perfect location for me to stay. The lodge recently took on new management not long before I arrived, which must have had...More

La Colina Lodge is a beautiful mountain lodge located at the edge of the Monteverde Cloud Forest. 150 Meters from the Monteverde Cheese Factory, you will find our rustic, log cabin style hotel full of art and bright More colors, with a cozy warmth in our dining room where most nights you will find an old wood stove burning. The views and sounds are simply breathtaking! You will wake up every morning to the sound of the famous Bellbird, fresh air and a view of biodiversity like you wouldn't believe. At La Colina Lodge, you will find art, music, beautiful community, great staff, nature at your doorstep, and lots of love! Less
