Travellers' Choice
Located in the Original "Old Town" Monteverde, and at walking distance to shops, pastries, and great restaurants, El Bosque is a Small Eco-Lodge in a beautiful setting completely surrounded by nature with gardens and trails to explore, as well as tours right on the premises (a birdwatching tour and a night walk in the forest). Solar Power is collected through panels and is used to light up walkways and driveways, as well as to heat the water in the showers. Onsite tours are responsibly limited to small groups to keep the forest quiet and sustainable. Friendly Staff will help you make plans and arrangements for other things to do and places to visit to make the most out of your stay in Monteverde. If you're looking for a simple, quiet and relaxing place to stay, away from the crowds, surrounded by its own private forest, but still at walking distance to a coffee shop, a bakery and three excellent restaurants, this is your place. El Bosque is especially recommended for travelers between the ages of 30 and 70 (grounds are flat so it's easy to walk) who are looking for a less touristy, more authentic travel experience, with abundant nature and wildlife (especially birds) at your doorstep.

I live in CR and this is my 4th stay at El Bosque. Rooms are spotless, comfy beds, delicious food, great wildlife, extensive trails and wonderful staff. Wifi throughout. I love the location because I can walk to both the Curi-Cancha and Bajo el Tigre reserves, Stella's bakery is across the street and the Women's Cooperative is next door.

Ernest and his team manage a lovely peaceful , clean corner of Monteverde. The rooms are generous fairly priced , spotlessly clean and in the heart of what you are looking for. The breakfast is excellent , the dinners are great after a long day of walking and exploring. I stayed here for three days and saw more wildlife here than at any other spot . Emerald toucanets , capachin , howlers, Motmots. If you want a caring quiet place to lay your head then this is it . To Ernest and his team a big thank you , keep doing what you do !

El Bosque is a nice cosy property. With many free walking trails and a night walk with a guide, which enhances the experience totally. Unfortunately, due to COVID there were many restrictions and the restaurant was only serving breakfast. Rooms are well maintained and laundry service is fast. Ernesto, is a fantastic host. He assisted in activity bookings, restaurant suggestions and was all over the place making sure everything was in order. Will definitely return in normal times to experience their real hospitality.
