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.
