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!

    Perfect spot for our stay in Santa Elena / Monteverde. Great facilities (incl a fully equipt kitchen and hot showers) and the room was great for our 2 night stay. Ideal location for getting to the attractions and staff (Diego in particular) were fantastic and incredibly helpful throughout!

    Exceeded our expectations, the friendliness of the staff and the knowledgable guidance they offered really made it special. The space was clean the rooms were comfortable and the breakfast was really delicious every day. The best was also getting to use the kitchen to make our dinners. Overall would definitely recommend.

    Super friendly staff, delicious breakfast, clean and comfortable room. The location is convenient for tours and restaurants. The deck is amazing to hang out on and take in the views. Parking both onsite and at a secured lot just down the road. Quiet and relaxed ambience with a mix of families, young groups of travelers, and a couple solo travelers. Could just depend on who happens to be there at the same time as you, but maybe not the best place to meet solo travelers. Would stay again.

    Camino Verde was a great stay. More like a hotel than a hostel but had good common areas to chill out. The staff were incredibly helpful and accomodating and really made our stay great. We stayed in a twin room which had bunk beds. It does say this on the website but we didn't notice it so be aware if booking that!
