  • We stayed at Coati Place Hostel which was a very simple hostel but with a beautiful view and a lovely owner. I was on a very strict budget and this was the cheapest place, however there are many beautiful cabins/hotels in Monteverde if you have a higher budget.

  • Myself and my friend stayed at Cabinas Jenny which you can find on Air BnB. It was a complex with a couple of rooms, each with their own little kitchen and a balcony overlooking the sea. It was lovely and we fell asleep to the sound of the ocean every night.
