Costa Rica: Central Valley

Monte Azul Hotel

Monte Azul is a luxury boutique hotel in the mountains and rainforest of southern Costa Rica. Monte Azul is a perfect destination for travelers looking for luxury and privacy. Every detail of the hotel was developed with the discerning traveler in mind, from high thread count sheets and large bathrooms, down to fine finishes and special details like organic soaps, which are handmade at Monte Azul. The hotel’s 125-acre private nature preserve is located at an altitude of 3,500 ft, just a few minutes’ drive from the entrance to Chirripó National Park and 30 minutes from the famous bird watching paradise of Skutch Ranch. The property includes over 1,200 meters of riverfront along the Chirripó River, numerous creeks, waterfalls, primary rainforest and an extraordinary number of animals and exotic plants.

Casita Amarilla (yellow) possesses a stunning mountain view of the primary rainforest from every window. Put your feet in the small brook that runs past your private garden or just relax and bird watch from your own deck. The luxurious high thread count sheets will comfort you as the sounds of the river lull you to sleep in the room’s premium queen size bed. The large rocks just outside your terrace feature an astonishing variety of plants and flowers that grow directly on the stone.

Casita Celeste

From the deck off your casita, enjoy your private garden abutting the Chirripó River, and be lulled to sleep by the quiet rhythms of the river. The gardens are situated at Casita Celeste so that you can bird watch without ever leaving your front door.
