Hotel Description

Claro De Luna: Your Home in Monteverde Costa Rica

Looking for a place to turn back the clock and escape from the trappings of modern life? Situated amongst the lush, green mountains of the Monteverde Cloud Forest Reserve, Claro de Luna is a treasure for those seeking a natural experience that is free from the pollution and noise associated with the modern concrete jungle. Earthy and accommodating, this charming hotel is nestled beside a family-owned horse farm and features breathtaking views of the Gulf of Nicoya and the Tilaran Mountain Range.

Founded by a small Quaker community in the 1950's, the surrounding community of Monteverde remains relatively untouched by modernity as the "ticos," or locals strive to preserve this special place for generations to come. Take time to experience the sights and sounds of this rich forested area. Take a stroll over to the Frog Pond to observe the brilliant ecosystem comprised of tropical insects and amphibious creatures before gliding over the tree-tops on the sky tram to take advantage of zip line excursions and suspension bridges to enjoy amazing views of the forest.

The beautiful, mahogany-trimmed rooms feature a large private bathroom with quaint amenities such as double beds, telephones, tour service and a scrumptious breakfast in the morning. After hiking through the forests, stop in for a slice of pizza at one of the most unique restaurants Monteverde has to offer. Pizzeria de Johnny's location offers beautiful views of green forests, ornate woodwork and some of the finest Italian food in the area!

If you crave adventure and yearn to explore the natural beauty of the green mountains, then lose the chains of civilization and set your sights on Claro de Luna.
