El Establo


Nestled in the misty cloud forest, El Establo is the area’s largest eco-resort in Monteverde. The grand luxury hotel offers large suites and a long list of amenities. They boast the area`s best views, heated indoor pools, spa, restaurants, café-bars, special events center, internet access, souvenirs shop, tennis court, basketball court, mini soccer court, hiking trails, canopy tour and a charming staff. It is considered by many as the best place to stay in cloud forest Costa Rica.


Starting off as a simple road-side stable, the property has not stopped growing in the last 25 years. The now expansive resort offers rooms and suites tucked into the hillsides and offers luxury amenities rarely seen in the area like tennis courts and hot tubs. However, the hillside location also means lots of hiking or waiting for shuttles to navigate the huge property.


All rooms feature either two queen-sized beds or one king-sized bed with orthopedic mattresses, beautiful views of the Nicoya Gulf from either a private balcony or terrace, wall-to-wall carpeting, large bathrooms with hot water and a separate shower and bathtub, hair dryer, telephone, cable TV, security box, alarm clock, closet, mini-refrigerator, and rocking chairs. Suites have an additional living area; Honeymoon Suites have a Jacuzzi tub. The hotel also has a serious commitment to the environment and promotes sustainable and responsible practices that insure the minimum impact on the environment.


While in the area, be sure to visit the Monteverde or Santa Elena Cloud Forest Reserves. Both are amazing experiences for birdwatchers and anybody interested in nature. Visitors also come to Monteverde to do things like; hanging bridges, bike riding, ATV riding, canopy ziplining, horseback riding, visiting waterfalls, reptile and animal exhibits, coffee or chocolate farm tours, guided tours, hiking trails, butterfly gardens, cloud forest hikes, night nature tour and eco-parks. Desafio can help you get the best prices on hotels in Montevered and plan the perfect Costa Rica vacation!
