Tucked at the foot of a cloud forest is the luxury mountain lodge Senda Monteverde. Perched high on a plateau overlooking the highlands of Costa Rica, you’ll enjoy spectacular sunsets from your suite and easy access into the nearby town.
Hailed as “the jewel in the crown of cloud forest reserves” by National Geographic, Monteverde is the place where zip-lining was born. You can enjoy this and so many more forest adventures during a family holiday to this eco-lodge. Enjoy complimentary access to Aguti Wildlife Reserve, home to its namesake the agouti, which is just a hop, skip and jump away over a hanging bridge.
Choose from a spacious family bungalow or the privacy of a romantic hillside retreat. The 24 suites are dotted across the property offering spectacular views of the cloud forest towards the Gulf of Nocoya. Extra-large windows seamlessly blend the outdoors with the inviting interior space. Open-air terraces are the perfect spot for relaxing after a day of high adventure.
