‘Senda Monteverde’ is perfect for:

Nature lovers, romantic getaways, and families in search of adventure.

Perched on a lush hill at the foot of a mountain, Senda is a unique Monteverde hotel in one of the greenest and most mystical forests of Costa Rica. This is a place to enjoy both modern comfort and natural beauty.

What to Expect

  • Silence, nature, and comfort.
  • Boutique feel. With few rooms and villas, attention is more personalized.

What NOT to Expect

  • Total isolation. The nearby town of Santa Elena is within 15 minutes walking distance from the hotel.
  • Resort amenities. Cayuga hotels make sure to enhance the real local experience.

Arrive to Senda Monteverde after a scenic drive across the countryside and woodlands. The hotel’s position is privileged and a delight to enjoy. It’s right on the continental divide between the Caribbean and Pacific sides of Costa Rica.

With two different nature reserves right on its doorstep, this hotel is located just in the outskirts of the wild cloud forest. It offers well-kept gardens and privacy to its guests in an area ideal for both relaxation and adventure.

Take it easy and enjoy the misty mountain around you or hit the road and go out exploring in search of excitement. Either way, Senda Monteverde can be the comfy and luxurious base for your vacation.
Recently remodeled, this 30-year-old property looks smart and stylish, merging its love for the outdoors with the need to set back and unwind. Enjoy detail-oriented attention, gourmet dining, and green scenery during your stay.

A Luxury Monteverde Hotel

The Senda Monteverde hotel is right on the edge of the famous Monteverde Cloud Forest Reserve and the Aguti Wildlife Refuge, making it a window to the unique Costa Rican cloud forest.

The hotel itself has its main facilities at the bottom of the hill, and all its stand-alone bungalows (or ‘casitas’), are distributed around the property. They are easily accessible through a stone path and are within walking distance of the main quarters.

Each bungalow has modern designs and sophisticated living spaces that bring up the best of both worlds. They all have expansive views of the forest and gardens, some even let you see the Pacific ocean on a clear day!

The experience is enhanced by the detail-oriented, personalized service at the hotel. From top-of-the-line amenities to carefully prepared meals, this place is an oasis of hospitality.

The surrounding wildlife is also treasured and abundant. There are ferns, mushrooms, and exotic flowers looking out from all around.

Get your complimentary rubber boots on, along with the walking sticks and stroll around the place. Spot everything from small animals, like stream frogs, hummingbirds, and colorful insects, to coatis, sloths, and monkeys.

Make sure to bring a camera to capture some of those surprises the forest provides.

Keep Up the Pace: On-Site Activities for All

Relaxing on your personal balcony is great, but the beauty of Monteverde is that it invites you to go out and explore. Whether you prefer calmer activities or an adventure full of adrenaline, Senda Monteverde has you covered.

The multi-purpose room is a place for low key events, like yoga, meditation lessons, and historical and cultural lectures. What is more, there is birdwatching, a playground for the kids, cooking and cocktail-making classes, and even Spanish lessons you can take.

The sustainability tour is also great for both children and adults alike, as it teaches how the hotel manages to preserve the forest that gives it the name.

The greatest attraction is the forest itself. With a good pair of boots and a guide, head out to explore nearby butterfly farms and waterfalls. Take a coffee tour to see Costa Rica’s most famous product, or see cacao plantations that offer organic chocolate.

Monteverde is a nature lover’s paradise. The Aguti Wildlife Refuge has over 60 acres of vegetation and wildlife, or discover over 200 bird species in the Curi-Cancha Reserve.

For those more adventurous, there are zip lining tours, aerial trams to enjoy treetops, and hanging bridges to admire the forest and its canyons. Go horseback riding or explore a part of the jungle full of bats. Whatever your fix, there is something in Monteverde for you!
