“Great homestay placement”
Reviewed 8 November 2009

Monteverde Homestay arranged a great homestay for us with a local family. The host family was very pleasant and helpful. They even helped me find a local doctor when I unfortunately got sick during my trip.

The food that the host mother provided was amazing. Better than anything we ate at the surrounding restaurants. The accommodations were simple and clean. I found it a very cozy environment. We shared the bathroom with the host family, but that made for pleasant exchanges. If you are going after a five star resort with all the amenities, this is probably not for you. But if you'd like to meet some local people and avoid touristy hotels, you might give them a try.

We took a coffee tour through them at a local coffee plantation. We were the only ones on the tour so we got a lot of individualized attention. Amazing coffee too!

We arranged our stay with them via e-mail. More info. can be found at their website:
