Camino Verde Hostel and B&B
Camino Verde B&B is a "Bed and Breakfast" style lodging opened in 2009 and located on the edge of Santa Elena. The B&B is laid out in the style of a family house and guests are encouraged to treat it as their home. The building was in fact once the owner's family home which gave inspiration to this 'Tica House' designed hotel.
The B&B is situated a 5 minute walk from the town centre of Santa Elena, but is far enough away for it to be quiet and have more rural surroundings. This is the perfect option for those who crave the quiet side of the countryside but who require the amenities provided in a town.
Camino Verde B&B comprises private rooms which sleep 2 to 4 guests. Four of the rooms have shared bathroom facilities and the rest are en suite. For the rooms with private bathroom the prices are $25 for one person, $35 for a double, triple $45 and quadruple $55. Rooms with shared bathroom costs $15 for a single and $20 for a double. All prices include breakfast and tax.
Camino Verde backs onto Tina's Casitas and is run by the same people, which offers even cheaper private rooms and dorms. There is a kitchen and a communal area here which B&B guests are welcome to use. Here there is a computer with internet connection, plus Wifi is available for guests with routers in the communal areas of both the B&B and Tina's Casitas.
Breakfast is free for all guests and is served from 6am until 9am. However the staff are very flexible and an earlier breakfast or packed-breakfast can be arranged if you have an early morning tour, just give them prior warning the evening before. There are three options for breakfast: the first is the typical Tico dish of eggs, rice and beans and toast; the second is fried or scrambled eggs with toast; the third is a fruit platter served with toast. Real coffee and orange juice is also available for every guest.
Check-out time is 10am but guests are welcome to use the communal areas all day if they have a late bus to catch. Camino Verde also offers a luggage storage service.
The friendly staff on reception are also experienced tour agents so can give out impartial advice on all the local companies. Furthermore they can share their countrywide knowledge of Costa Rica and organise any ongoing travel. Upon arrival at the hotel they give all guests a map of Monteverde and mark out all the different tours and activities that various companies offer in the area. This way guests learn about what is available to them and can suss out how long they might like to stay for. If required they can create "pick and mix" packages of various activities to suit each individual.

The homely layout to the B&B is created with the incorporation of a living room (with great views of the rolling hills of Monteverde and Nicoya Gulf), kitchen and dining room and there is a good-value grocery store right next door. There is also a big supermarket just down the road. Furthermore some of the cheapest restaurants in town are a few metres walk down the road from the B&B.

DirectionsShow MapHide Map
From the central Bus Station walk Southwest. Across from the church you will find an entrance, follow that entrance pass Bar Amigos, straight down the dirt road for 325m. (We are right next to Tinas Casitas) We are almost the last lodging on that road, we are between a small mini market called Las Orquideas and a small restaurant called la La Amistad
Upon initial arrival head to the Camino Verde Property in the town centre where staff will arrange for a free shuttle to take you from there to the B&B. This is a useful feature because although the B&B is very close to town it saves guests having to try to work out their way around an unknown town.
