Monteverde and the cloud forest: El Establo

Visit Us

El Establo

The mid-range, low rise El Establo hotel has sweeping views over the Costa Rican cloud forest at Monteverde. The building is from the exterior appealingly rustic, and rooms are modern and well-furnished comfy with large windows overlooking the foliage.

Essentially it is a low-key resort hotel with a spa, bars, swimming pools, football pitches and tennis courts. The hotel is spread over extensive grounds, and there is a shuttle bus to transport guests to and from the further, higher rooms. There is no air-conditioning or fan but there is usually a cool breeze at night. There are two restaurants but plenty of others in the town, which is within walking distance or a short $2 taxi ride away.
