We recently stayed at Mariposa Bed & Breakfast for the second time in 4 years. First my wife and I liked the reviews and gave it a chance. Thoroughly impresses, when we got a chance to take our whole family down, we knew where we were going to stay in Monte Verde. I can't say enough great things about this...

We were extremely pleased with Mariposa. Esteban, the owner, was helpful with park information and local area information. The breakfasts were delightful and we had several choices. The room was quiet and we had a view of the forest and were able to hear birds often.

Mariposa B&B is a little out of town, but on the way to Monteverde Cloud reserve. It's beautifully located and more quiet than a hotel in Santa Elena. The cabins are in the middle of a nice garden. If you sit on your small terrace for a while you'll see an abundance of birds flying by. The cabins are clean...

We have stayed here for three nights and enjoyed every single minute. Especially Esteban was very kind and also the breakfast with Gallo Pinto was very good. The room was very clean, with hot shower and a safe in the room. Mariposa would be our first choice when we come back to Monteverde.

Great location between Santa Elena and the cloud forest reserve, good restaurants nearby and Stella's bakery and coop too. Esteban was super helpful, nothing was too much trouble for him to sort out and he is full of useful local information which you won't find in the guide books! We stayed one night in the b&b before moving to the...

I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at Mariposa. Esteban and his family were fantastic! They were so kind and helpful. It really felt like they were allowing you into their home. It was awesome to see the activity of hummingbirds right outside my window. I enjoyed getting out and making the walk into town for some exercise. A clean room with...

If you're visiting the cloud forest, why not stay in the clouds? Mariposa Bed and Breakfast puts you right there. This small, family-run property is a cluster of spotless rooms and suites in the misty forest populated by multi-colored birds that make this area their home. Esteban and his family aim to please, with their home-cooked breakfasts, gentle style and...

This was a charming place run by Esteban a very friendly and kind gentleman. If you want to be in your own cabin in the middle of the Cloud Forest..this is the place for you. Our cabin was all wood with kitchen, microwave, big dining table, refrigerator, a/c., big open windows facing the forest..overall beautiful architecture and wood details. Breakfast...

Yes, Estaban and crew were great. Clean and home-like is true. Loved the extra space of the kitchen suite, especially with kids (2 & 4). Breakfast was good to start our day. Estaban helped us plan our itinerary and travel jeep-boat jeep to Arenal. Computer use was handy. Foods from the coop store store, night hike at the children's reserve,...
