|Located in the Tilarán Mountain Range at 4,600 ft. above sea level on the edge of the world's best known mid-elevation cloud forest, Monteverde Lodge is the expression of Costa Rica Expeditions' desire to create the ultimate lodging experience for the discerning nature traveler.|
|The dining room with its cloud forest mural, abundant tropical flora, and contemporary design is the perfect setting for enjoying a unique a la carte cuisine lovingly created especially for Monteverde by Hugo "Perla" Salas, the person responsible for the meals at all our lodges.|
|The rooms at the Lodge are designed to put you "in the forest" while protecting you from the mist and strong wind so characteristic of the area. All are spacious with solar heated hot water private baths.|
|Many of our guests find that their most enjoyable time in Costa Rica is spent in the Monteverde Lodge Gardens. Emphasizing ferns and bromeliads, we have chosen native plant species that replicate the natural cloud forest and attract its fauna. A running stream, pond and small waterfall provide a habitat for reverie birds and a host of reptiles and amphibians. Carefully placed benches provide a comfortable place, offer privacy and/or panoramic vistas to observe the wildlife, read, write, or just wile away the hours.|
|Originally just 4,000 acres, the Monteverde
Reserve now protects an area of approximately 25,000 acres, comprising
six different life zones. So many habitats in such a small area along
with extensive trail improvements allow visitors to enjoy a rich
diversity of flora and fauna with relatively little and easy walking.
The Children's Eternal Rain Forest, which was purchased by the donations of literally tens of thousands of children from 44 countries all over the world, is adjacent to the Monteverde Preserve and operated by the Monteverde Conservation League.
Nearby, the newer Santa
Elena Reserve provides a less developed but increasingly popular cloud
