Why Leo & Reina Arguedas chose Monte Verde
This beautiful land was once part of the farm belonging to our father, Rafael Arguedas Herrera, who was a pioneer of Monteverde; His family was the sixth to reach the region. Back in those days the major product of the farm was sugar cane as well as cattle. The Arguedas brothers worked together with their father, pressing cane through a trapiche, and boiling it to obtain molasses and brown sugar, products that were used at that time instead of refined sugar. Grateful for our inheritance of this beautiful place, we strive to preserve and protect it, and continue our father's work of reforestation in areas that were once pastured. We wish our beautiful farm to endure forever.

Beautiful, comfortable property convenient to all Monteverde/Sta. Elena Activities
This is one of four cabins, arranged so each has privacy and beautiful garden/lawn space. There are trails around the working farm/"plantation" that are fun to walk and many photo ops. The family members are very helpful with information on activities and helped us with arrangements. The location is extremely convenient to the Tico town of Sta. Elena, which has every kind of services, and to the many nature reserves, yet is sheltered and quiet. They will bring you a sumptuous farm breakfast for a nominal charge with their own fresh fruits, juices, eggs etc. We loved our stay but wish we had more time, as there is so much to see and do nearby. One caveat: inform yourselves of times of road closures as the access road to the Monteverde area is only open for 1/2 hour at a time a few times a day and the trip up involved long waits and rough terrain. We had no problem on the way down because they told us the best times to leave and not have to wait in a long line. We plan to return and will definitely choose the Cabañas Valle Campanas again as our base in the Monteverde area.
Great property with beautiful landscaping
The property is very well maintained. The construction of the buildings is relatively new, spacious, and although there are multiple units on the property, laid out in a way that feels private. The family that runs the property was very pleasant and helpful. There is a sign at the end of the drive marking the property, as without this would be difficult to find due to not being on a main road. Great sunset views!
Beutiful property, great service, and amazing location.
Couldn’t have asked for a better experience. The family who runs the properties took care of us and even helped us out with finding activities to do. They truely helped make my girlfriend and I have an amazing experience and love Monteverde. The cabin we stayed in has everything you need and entire property is beautiful. We were also able to order homemade breakfast from them upon request which was extra tasty.
