    Great budget stay IN the Monteverde Cloud Forest!

    I had a wonderful stay at the Casa. Delicious and plentiful breakfast. My own room. The hosts are the sweetest people ever. The best part is the proximity to the Monteverdi reserve. This home is well outside the little town of Santa Elena and is located up in the cloud forest. I was able to catch the local bus up to Montverde Reserva for 700 colones. Just flag it down. No need for tour. There are a couple of restaurants, a bakery and an art centre very close by. Walk to the Quaker run dairy for cheese and ice cream or walk to the ‘other Reserva’ of Curicancha which is also an excellent cloud forest park. Anyhow, Casa Alquimia is a good place to stay and I have no hesitation in recommending it to other budget travelers. There seems to be several long term renters there which is lovely.

    Great Stay for Budget

    The family is amazing and so gracious. Unless you order a room with a bathroom attached you do have to share, which can get a little crowded and you may have to wait a bit. Breakfasts were timely with varied fruit, coffee or tea, eggs (cooked how you prefer), toast, and fresh mango preserves. If you are looking for a budget friendly, unique experience I recommend staying at Casa Alquimia.

    This is a very special place. The owners are both artists and make an incredible breakfast. They will help plan any day trips you need as well. I felt very cared for as a single woman Traveler.

    Our thoughts

    We thought the couple who had the place were lovely. However, to be honest, the place was a bit of a dump. Not the cleanest, lots of unfashioned projects, and some distance to the main town. Still, for 1 or 2 nights, it was OK
