Walk just 10 minutes through the forest from Monteverde Lodge to the Ecological Sanctuary. This small privately owned reserve is part of a biological corridor, located in a transitional forest that goes from tropical moist forest to tropical dry forest.

A favorite birding site, the Sanctuary is known for the multitude of wildlife that makes the Sanctuary its home. Among the often seen residents are the Long Tailed Manakin with active leks during the months of April to July, Three Wattled Bellbirds, Chiriqui Quail-Dove, Two-toed Sloths, Prehensile Tailed Porcupine and Agouti.

no smoking

Smokers Be Aware!
Costa Rica has recently passed one of the strictest smoking regulations in the world; hotels are 100% SMOKE FREE.
If you are a guest at the hotel, and want to smoke, by law you are required to leave the property. This is a 300 meter walk to the road outside the main gate, day or night, rain or shine. We realize that this is very inconvenient, but it’s the law. There is an $800 fine for breaking this law.
