Property Description

Camino Verde B&B is a Bed and Breakfast style lodging opened in 2009 and located on the edge of Santa Elena. The B&B is laid out in the style of a family house and guests are encouraged to treat it as their home. The building was in fact once the owner's family home which gave inspiration to this 'Tica House' designed hotel.

The B&B is situated a 5 minute walk from the town centre of Santa Elena, but is far enough away for it to be quiet and have more rural surroundings. This is the perfect option for those who crave the quiet side of the countryside but who require the amenities provided in a town.


Camino Verde B&B comprises private rooms which sleep 2 to 4 guests. 2 of the 19 rooms have shared bathroom facilities and the rest are en-suite. All prices include breakfast, WIfi, and Coffee and tea free all day.

Breakfast is free for all guests and is served from 6:30 am until 8:30am. However the staff are very flexible and an earlier breakfast or packed-breakfast can be arranged if you have an early morning tour, just give them prior warning the evening before. There are three options for breakfast: the first is the typical Tico dish of eggs, rice and beans and toast; the second is fried or scrambled eggs with toast; the third is a fruit platter served with toast. Real coffee and orange juice is also available for every guest.

Check-out time is 11am but guests are welcome to use the communal areas all day if they have a late bus to catch. Camino Verde also offers a luggage storage service.

The friendly staff on reception are also experienced tour agents so can give out impartial advice on all the local companies. Furthermore they can share their countrywide knowledge of Costa Rica and organize any ongoing travel. Upon arrival at the hotel they give all guests a map of Monteverde and mark out all the different tours and activities that various companies offer in the area. This way guests learn about what is available to them and can suss out how long they might like to stay for. If required they can create pick and mix packages of various activities to suit each individual.

Please let us know if you need any help on getting to Monteverde! We can help you arrange a Shuttle or a Taxi Boat Taxi if your coming from Arenal.

Also, Just to let you know, there are a lot of fun things to to here, and since we have an Info-Center we can help you arrange anything with great discounts! Prices you will find online will be higher, and availability wont be a problem, so there`s no need to book tours in advance.

Let us know if you have any questions about the B&B or on things to do!

    This place rules! One of the cleanest places I’ve stayed in ever (they emptied our trash & made our bed like twice a day). The staff was so friendly and helpful with everything and you can walk to town in a minute but they also have a lot of arrangements with buses to take you to the reserves for only a few dollars round trip. We would stay here again & again. Great service but with a fun down-to-earth backpackers feel. Love love love. (And amazing view as well :))

    Camino verde is fabulous and the staff go to great lengths to accommodate requests. Erny is delightful and really cares about your experience. The location is a short walk from the town center. The covered balconies were a visual treat.

    The staff here was amazing and very helpful! They not only recommended activities for our time in Monteverde, but also helped with booking activities at our next locations. The free breakfast in the morning was also very tasty and a great way to start the day.

    Our family (2 adults, 2 teenager's) stayed for 2 nights and couldn't fault the hostel. The staff were very helpful and knowledgeable, the room was very nice and the pancakes lived up the previous reviews. I would recommend this hostel to anyone visiting the region.

    I was staying in room 26. It’s a cute little cabin vibe room with contemporary touch. It’s clean, and the bed is comfy. It is a bit of a walk to el centro. It is nice and quite at night. Of course, there are birds singing for you time to time. Both the quietness and the singing birds are perfect remedy for a goodnight sleep. On the side note, Monteverde can get really windy time to time.

    This place was great! The bedroom was small but clean and cozy. The bathroom and shower were shared with two other rooms and we had no problem using it. The breakfast was delicious! Freshly made eggs and pancakes and great fruit. There were other options for breakfast as well (including a more traditional Costa Rican option). Downtown Monteverde was just a short walk away, and there was a delicious Soda right next door to the BnB (Soda A La Amistad). I definitely recommend getting a meal there.
