The hotel offers a perfect setting for the visitors who love bird-watching, nature photography and serenity of a mountain retreat. It has been designed to offer home-style comfort in the warmth of all wood construction, assuring the guest an unforgettable vacation. Around 1987, when the number of scientists and tourists visiting the Monteverde Biological Reserve
Monteverde Cloud Forest Costa Rica
began to rise significantly, it became clear that the Monteverde region required more lodging and restaurant services to meet the increased demand. Stepping in to fill this need, Hotel Heliconia opened with only five guest rooms, and one for the owners – doña Roxana and her family – thus launching itself as a tourism pioneer in Monteverde.
Our efforts have paid off. Today, Hotel Heliconia offers our visitors an enchanting space, surrounded by vibrant gardens, lush with local plants, and 55 comfortable, well-equipped rooms. In short, we have created an ideal environment for enjoying unforgettable vacations, drinking in fresh mountain air, observing the cloud forest and, of course, relaxing and savoring the peace and quiet. Of course, we also offer an impressive list of activities, such as hanging-bridge and canopy tours; nocturnal forest tours; natural history walks, horseback tours and visits to Monteverde’s coffee-, milk- and cheese-producing areas, as well as a number of attractions, including a butterfly garden, a reptile and amphibian garden, a hummingbird garden and an orchid garden (boasting some species found nowhere else in the world)
Located in Monteverde, a privileged location, that places it near two of the most beautiful protected tropical forests in Costa Rica, the well known Monteverde Cloud Forest Preserve and the Santa Elena Rain Forest Reserve (at six kilometres).
