Hotel El Bosque is nestled in the Monteverde region, a hot spot for eco-tourism in the Central Highlands of Costa Rica. Monteverde is huddled between two primary cloud forest reserves and surrounded by a patch of active volcanoes. The abundance of plants and animals here makes this destination ideal for nature lovers.
Put on some hiking shoes and enjoy the beauty and bounty of both the Monteverde and Santa Elena Cloud Forest reserves. Both have excellent trail systems, suspension bridges, and fast-flying canopy adventures. There is also ATV tours, butterfly and hummingbird gardens, horseback riding, insect museums and a cheese factory for visitors to explore. The quaint town of Santa Elena has supermarkets, restaurants, cafes, and more.
Hotel El Bosque is built into the heart of the Monteverde region, only 3 kilometers from Santa Elena and 2 kilometers from the Monteverde Cloud Forest Reserve. In fact, guests won't have any trouble making their way to the reserve, as the bus stops daily in front of the hotel. This lodge is perched mid-mountain, and is surrounded by lush gardens and a thick forest. The hotel runs its own forest trails that extend beyond the property, so guests can enjoy a leisurely stroll whenever they please.
The hotel's architecture involves a series of rooms laid out in a horseshoe around the main courtyard. The rooms are far from the road, so guests will get the peace and quiet they desire. All accommodations come equipped with a private bathroom, hot shower, coffee maker, and fan. There is a tasty Italian restaurant, Tramonti, next door and a famous bakery down the road. With a friendly and helpful staff, and a quiet location, Hotel El Bosque is the perfect place to retreat and relax after a long day spent exploring the area.

Feedback from Travelers
The hotel was right in the middle of the nature preserve. Very scenic! We did a bird watching tour right on the property. Morning coffee and breakfast were very convenient.
Staff friendly and welcoming. Accommodation simple but clean and adequate. Well placed for the cloud forest and night walk. Local Italian good and also local bakery great place to see birds as you have your drink as they feed them bananas to encourage them!
Standard cabin, exactly as described. Perfect location. Loved waking up to howler monkeys outside my window!
