The jungle: an unearthly symphony of cries, croaks, and screeches. At the Monteverde Lodge & Gardens, you’ll hear it all loud and clear. That’s because this luxury eco-hotel has no TV and no air-conditioning—so that you can immerse yourself in the blend of silence and wild hullabaloo that is the Monteverde cloud forest. The tinamou’s whistle and flutter, the black howler monkey’s croak, the scarlet macaw’s chatter: you’ll hear them all just outside your window, as you wake to the glories of one of Central America’s most stunning paradises.
The Monteverde Lodge & Gardens has won numerous awards for its design and service, from National Geographic’s Tours of a Lifetime Award to TripAdvisor’s Certificate of Excellence. That’s because the hotel erases the boundary between man and nature, enveloping you in Costa Rica’s gorgeous natural scenery. From orchid trails to frog ponds, private terraces to gardens aswarm with hummingbirds and butterflies, this one-of-a-kind experience allows you to feel your oneness with nature’s most primal mysteries.
