Trapp Family Lodge is a lovely ecolodge and the closest to the Monteverde Cloud Forest Reserve. Located at the end of the dirt road, near the entrance to the reserve, the lodge offers a quiet and serene base camp for exploring the wonders of Monteverde. Lodge amenities include a restaurant, bar, free parking area, and cloud forest views. The lodge also provides wireless internet access so you can stay in touch.

The Monteverde Cloud Forest Reserve is within hiking distance of the hotel. The protected cloud forest is an enchanting and beautiful place to observe rare highland bird species. A short drive will lead you to the Monteverde Cheese Factory, a delightful Chocolate Shop, or the CASEMCOOP Women's Coop, which offers unique handmade souvenirs with proceeds going to the women of the Coop. The Monteverde town center is about a 10-minute drive, and Santa Elena is approximately 15 minutes away. Of course, the ziplines and hanging bridges are all in the same general area, all of which are within 20 minutes (may take longer if you are on an organized tour as other guests will be picked up and dropped off).

Expect quiet days and night at the Trapp Family Lodge. The wood-paneled restaurant offers views to the cloud forest, a relaxed ambiance, and tasty international cuisine with a local flair. Guests can also enjoy tropical cocktails at the lodge's lounge and bar area.

Rooms at the lodge are spacious and surprisingly comfortable for an ecolodge. Superior Rooms are in the main lodge building, while the Mountain Suites are in a building positioned up a small hill from the lobby area. The 26 rooms all offer two queen size beds, cable TV, telephone, hair dryer, and great views. Check the Amenity Section for details of each room type.

All in all, Trapp Family Lodge is a fantastic choice for ecotourists in search of a peaceful ecolodge near the Monteverde Cloud Forest Reserve. The staff is ever warm and welcoming, offering a genuine feeling of pura vida. Contact us now to add this charming ecolodge to your Costa Rica vacation!
