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!

    We arrived a lot later than we had originally planned but they had the key ready for us and allowed us to officially check-in the next morning. Breakfast was delicious with plenty of options! Great patio for a wine night. Getting tours set up was extremely convenient and lots of great recommendations. Everything was either close by or transportation was provided. Everyone was really helpful and friendly.

    We had a fantastic stay. All the staff members were extremely helpful and made great recommendations for us for trips in the area (we recommend El Tigre waterfalls!). The common rooms were nice and the breakfast was great!

    One of the best places I’ve stayed through the website. Host was amazing and so helpful in booking us tours and transportation around Monteverde. The breakfast was top notch and the views from the balcony are some of the best in the city. We had a wonderful experience and hope to be back sometime!!

    This is one of the most beautiful places I have ever stayed at - hostel, hotel, airbnb - it was gorgeous. Breakfast is provided and is delicious and big enough to fill you up for morning activities. The staff was knowledgeable and was able to recommend the best activities and the best places to go for good prices. 3 min walk to town. I wish I had booked a longer stay here. DO NOT BOOK ANY OTHER PLACE if you are going to monteverde.

    This is the best place I’ve ever stayed. We wish we could have stayed longer. It is in a great location, five minutes from downtown and right next to restaurants and a grocery store. The view is beautiful of the mountains and clouds. The breakfast is amazing. Jeaustin was probably the best part of our stay. He was so helpful and booked us a shuttle and a tour and helped us with everything we needed. I would 100% recommend staying here in Monteverde!

    Wow, this place is very special! The staff are amazing and so helpful, I honestly just loved talking with them too! The view from the breakfast restaurant is beautiful, I sat out there with a friend for a few hours and it was very chill. The breakfast is included for everyone and delicious. The rooms were comfortable and clean, the bathrooms were also impeccably clean. It's not a social atmosphere, more like a B&B/hotel vibe, but that kind of works for this place. It's a place to relax!

    I think Camino Verde is more like a hotel than a hostel. The receptionist was super nice and welcoming, my room was super clean and nice. The breakfast was also good, and the hostel is located really close to the city center, so it's easy to go out for a dinner. The hostel can arrange you programs or shuttles to different places. I would definitely recommend this place!
