Arco Iris Mountain Lodge in Monteverde

Arco Iris Lodge is a tranquil oasis in the middle of Santa Elena, Monteverde. Located just one block off the main road, you feel as though you are set away from all.
The hotel grounds are beautifully landscaped and perfectly maintained. Numerous fruiting and flowering trees attract birds, butterflies and many other animals.

A patch of old growth forest surrounds the property and we are proud to protect some of the tallest trees close to the village of Santa Elena. For relaxation and wildlife watching you find various areas for lounging, including tree swing-style chairs.
Spread out on our vast property are twenty lovely cabins for our guests. » Rooms at our Hotel
