Historias Lodge is a lovely, relaxing place to base yourself in Monteverde. Luis and Alba are amazing hosts and make you feel so at home that you won't want to leave. The rooms are large, clean and tastefully decorated. The breakfast is spot on and can be enjoyed whilst watching the hummingbirds on the bird feeders just outside the window....

We had a tour booked, and Alba called them to confirm etc. just to ensure we had a pleasant stay. When we got there, we only had 50 minutes before they picked us up for...
