Very nice place not far away of rincon de la vieja national park. The rooms are placed in a small house within a beautiful quiet garden. Nice and comfortable room. The owners are helpful in giving advise on what to see in the national park and they serve good breakfast. They can also tell you about the simple local restaurants in town and how to walk to a waterfall nearby (to which their dog will follow you in case you don't ask them not to),
We went there easily by public bus and they can organise a shuttle to the national park the next day.

We stayed 3 nights at this cozy and friendly inn. The owners are great people and make you feel welcomed. They gave us super information on resturants,trails and hot springs. We fell in love with their dog Luna. The breakfast was fantastic. Will stay again when visting Costa Rica.

Room Tip: Stay in the first room, nice view of the jungle.

Very nice place to stay. The property is well kept and everything looks really nice. The rooms dont have airco but just a fan. I was there in a very warm period, but though it dit worry me a bit, the fan was more than adequate.

The breakfast is superb and you can even order a lunch pakkage if you intend to spend the day hiking.

The owners are more than helpful an do their best to make you feel at home. They take lots of time to explain what there is to do in and about Curubande and Rincon de la Vieja.

But it doesn't stop there, they also more than willing to help you with giving tips about other area's in Costa Rica, which was very helpful for us. They also warned us that the park was closed the day after we planned to book our nights stay, so we booked it for a day later, which made it possible to enjoy another wonderful day in Monteverde.

El Sol Verde is approx a 15 min drive away from the park, so if you have a car thats close enough. The owners can also help you hitch a ride on a bus going there if you let them know in time. Keep in mind that this area is rather remote, so it can take quite some time before a cab can come pick you up.

To sum it up, if your visiting Rincon de la Vieja and your looking for a place to stay, look no further, you've found the spot.

We stayed here two nights and were well taken care of. When we first arrived our host Ingrid told us about the sights and restaurants nearby. She also told us about a great little swimming hole nearby. Our room was clean and well appointed. The bed was big enough for my 2m + tall boyfreind. The breakfast was very typical (eggs, toast, jam, coffee, tea, juice) and good. We took advantage of the laundry service. the camping area looked nice. The warm shower felt great after an all day hike to/from the ricon crater.

A short cab or bus ride from the Liberia Airport gets you to Curubande where El Sol Verde is situated.Only minutes from National Park Rincon de le Vieja "El Sol Verde" is the perfect spot to start your adventure.It offers modestly priced rooms as well as a beautiful little camp ground. You can pitch your tent or keep it paked away and stay in a custom designed wonderfuly ventilated "tent shelter". The camp grounds includes a lovely constructed bathroom and shower area,a BBQ as well as a large outdoor wash sink for dishes and clothing.(they will also rent you camping dishes for a few bucks) The owners,Gerard and Ingrid, are wonderful people who make you feel at home and offer valuable advice and information about the area and Costa Rica in general.They filled me in on what to see and do in the Park, and also what beaches I should check out on the Pacific Coast(they lived on the coast for some time) My so-called "extra features" of El Sol Verde would be; Ingrid's breakfast, Gerard's handcrafted stone work, the wonderful view , the awesome swimming hole down the street and the huge mango tree loaded with mangos.
