We stayed 2 nights at El Viandante B&B.and it was great. The rooms are clean and S.Elena village is at walking distance. Lorenzo, the owner is an amazing host. He was very friendly and he gave us very good recommendations both regarding activities to do in the area (e.g. night tour in the rain forest, canopy tour, etc) and about restaurants / caffe in town. I strongly advise you to stay here if you plan to visit the Monteverde area.

Don't expect too much from this B&B. The room is extremely basic and if you do not have a 4x4 vehicle you probably will not make it up the short but very steep hill. Owners are very nice and if you just want a place to crash for the night then it will suffice.

We stayed at Hotel El Viandante February 16 thru the 20, 2011 and had the most wonderful time. Grace and Renzo go out of their way to make sure you have a great time. They are so full of knowledge and two of the nicest people we have met in a long time. The breakfast was always yummy and more than enough and always home cooked. The rooms are clean and pleasant. Unfortunately we had to cut our stay short by a day and still had so many things to see in the Santa Elena area. We think it is a must to spend more than just a day or 2 in this area. Yes we would and hope to go back some day soon. We have put this B and B on the top of our list and recommend it often. Larry and Brenda, Denver, Colorado

We really enjoyed our stay here. The owners are very friendly and helpfull and their younds 2 kids are very very beautiful. We stayed 3 nights , the room was pretty new, very big and the bathroom was clean and big. The breakfast was good and the breakfast/common room had an amazing view of nicoya´s gulf. We did zipline, horseback riding tour, trapiche tour and hiking at the s.elena preserve. We want to go back again next year....
