We are known as Monteverde because of the Monteverde Cloud Forest reserve.
From the town of Santa Elena it is about 25 minutes to the end of two roads leading out of town. One goes to the Santa Elena Cloud Forest Reserve. Also along this road are located the Canopy and Suspension Bridge tours.
The other road leads to the Monteverde Cloud Forest Reserve and passes the Cheese Factory, Bajo de Tigre trails and many hotels and restaurants.
Everything then is spread out. You can stay at one hotel close to the Monteverde Reserve which is nice and quiet. However then you are farther from town and restaurants and stores.
You can stay in town which is very convenient to walk to stores and restaurants. The trade off is a bit more noise.
Or you can stay at any hotel along or off the main roads. Then you have a good chance for less noise.
Rainbow Valley Lodge is close to town but yet the rooms are isolated down below the road and thus more quiet.
We are located a 15 minute walk to town and three minutes in a vehicle. We are located on the road leading out of Santa Elena going south down the mountain to the main Inter American highway (# 1 ).We are 10 blocks north (towards town) from the new gas station.
