Does anyone have an expierence in staying at Hotel Don Taco or Pie de Monte? Do you know if they are on the bus route?

Re: Hotels

I'm pretty sure the bus hub for Monteverde is in Santa Elena, a 10 min walk up the hill. If you want cheap acom. stay at Pension Santa Elena, It's a backpackers spot. They're very helpful with area info and great people. If you want something a bit nicer, stay at Arco Iris next door. Not sure about Don Taco or the other one. Theres a big yellow school bus that runs severeal times a day from Santa Elena to Monteverde and the cloud forest resereve that costs about 2 dollars. If you're looking for something thats close to the public bus routes, Santa Elena is your place.

Have Fun

I stayed at Don Tacos in June and it was nice. Although we had no hot water, and were told that's how it goes. The rooms are basic but adequate with good views.Free Internet at reception and a nice dining room.Santa Elena is just a short walk down the hill. The zip lining at Selvatura was awesome. I've done this in Argentina and South Africa, and this is the best.
Enjoy.

Travel Tips for Monteverde

Dairy 3 jan 2003 Monteverde/Sta Elena

by a005116

To be honnest, we've not seen much more than just trees. Beautifull trees, but the promised quetzals, monkeys, ... all on holiday. Well, the jungle itself is also quiete impessive. After the sky-walk (walking on the so famous bridges true the jungle) we did the sky-trek. There you had to "fly" from one side to the other on a stale cable. Never known that I was so scared by hights, but it was very high, up to 160m above the ground! On that highest point I had to close my eyes, but it was fun.

mantenimiento caminos y carreteras...

by pollon

when you arrive at Santa Elena and Monteverde at the end of all those holes of the bumpy ride and you are asked a free offer of 100 colones (less then 20 cents of euros) for the maintenance of the roads, you don't even think to say no thanks ;-)...

ZIP lines!

by daffodil

There are 4 different zip line tours in Monteverde. We went on the Skytrek. We got to do 16 cables (don't know why the site says 11). It was so cool to whip through the trees and even above them. After you get over your inital fear of dying it is tones of fun. It is provided. And you are always attached to the cable, but the pulley and a safety line. The Costa Rican govenment regulates the operators (they don't want bad publicity to scare tourists away).

Exhilarating and Terrifying

by jag17

You must take a canopy tour while visiting Monteverde. Monteverde is the home of the "original" zip line tour. The scariest thing I have ever done, but so happy when I did it! You start by climbing a rope ladder that is on the inside of a hollow strangler fig tree. You are wearing a harness that is attached to a cable. The cable allows you to zip across the tree tops to platforms that are placed in the trees. At the end, you rappel back down to the ground. A huge adrenaline rush!

Guided night walk

by Helga67

A guided night walk can be very interesting, it will give you the opportunity to see some other animals, especially bugs that you won't see during the day.

The night walk starts at sunset. You will be given a flash light and together with a guide you will walk the dark trails looking for spiders, snakes, and all kind of night bugs.

We did ours at the Ecological Santuary in Monteverde. The cost per person is 15 USD. The night walk starts at 5:30 p.m.
