Monteverde Paraiso Reviews
Jul 22, 2007
If you're going to see the volcano and have some cash to splash, you could do worse than here. It is a resort hotel and, as such, it is a place for holiday-makers and geared accordingly: it has its own restaurant (expensive), swimming pools, hot springs, etc. If you like hot springs, you can do a tour to another far more expensive resort called "Tabacon" described by me old mucker Rob as a James Bond set. I digress!
Due to the hot springs, you are likely to spend some time in the wet bar - which is fed by the spring water and is a weird, but not unpleasant, experience. Sipping cocktails whilst enjoying the mineral warmth around ones lower body is freakish.
Oh yeah, there is a live volcano next door. All the rooms are of the chalet variety and all are on a hillside looking directly at the side of the volcano where the lava comes jumping down. Assuming you get a clear night, the sight is spectacular. Every room has a veranda overlooking said view. You will not forget it.
You're looking at around US$70 per night...
