Ficus Sunset Suites
Set into the highside, the elegantly designed Ficus Sunset Suites offers views of the Gulf of Nicoya and the surrounding cloud forest. The rooms are decorated with brilliantly finished wood and the artwork of Peruvian painter Batista. An experienced staff maintains these impeccably clean rooms and is dedicated to ensuring that you have an unforgettable stay. Antawara restaurant, under the direction of Peruvian Chef Miguel Gonzalez Gamarra, serves an eclectic menu of tantalizing seafood, mouth watering poultry, and delicious vegetables grown in the local garden.
While Monteverde lacks a town center, cafes and galleries (in addition to excellent views) are readily available en route to the cloud forest. On a particularly clear day, visitors are treated to a view of both the Caribbean and Pacific Coasts for a viewpoint on the continental divide. The virgin forests and abundant wildlife within Monteverde and Santa Elena Cloud Forest Reserves is the primary focus of most visitors to this area, but don't forget to enjoy a tour of the Monteverde Cheese Factory.
The concierge at the Ficus Sunset Suites can offer great recommendations for adventure tours and traditional folk activities in the Monteverde area. In Selvatura Park, visitors can experience canopy tours, a treetop suspension bridge, butterfly gardens, and more. The Heliconia Ranch offers an agricultural diversity tour, which provides insight into the ancient lifestyle. Additionally, guests can hire a naturalist or acquire maps to explore the local trails. Trails around the property lead into the cloud forest where visitors may catch a glimpse of the elusive sloth or the noisy howler monkey.
