Cabañas Valle Campanas

Welcome to Cabañas Valle Campanas.


We are a small establishment operated by an authentic Costarican family, located at five minutes drive from Santa Elena downtown.


We offer comfortable cabins with fully equipped kitchen making it ideal for families and visitors who wish to stay in the Monteverde area for several days.


We invite to take a short walk through our property, where is not uncommon to spot different animals such as toucans, sloths, coati, agouti and birds since Valle Campanas is also a refuge of an amazing quantity of birds , including the famous Three-wattled Bellbird during the time it migrates through our area.


Our ideology is the satisfaction of our guest, as we offer the best personalized service in a familiar environment.


Come and enjoy the peace and privacy we offer you here in this small piece of paradise.




This beautiful property of 12 hectares was acquired by our father Rafael Arguedas in 1972 who was one of the first settlers of Monteverde.


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, grinding and boiling it to obtain molasses and brown sugar, products that were used at that time instead of refined sugar.


We still use this Trapiche today, as a remembrance of our father; we also have fun demonstrating to our visitors how well it still works. You will enjoy a glass of delicious fresh sugar cane juice as it pours out of the Trapiche.


Grateful for our inheritance of this beautiful place, we strive to preserve and protect it for future generations, and continue our father's work of reforestation in areas that were once pastured hoping that our beautiful farm will endure forever.

“An amazing experience”
My girlfriend and I stayed at Cabanas Valle Campanas for two nights and didn't want to leave. Reina and her family were incredibly welcoming and the property was stunningly quiet, peaceful and verdant. The individual cabins provide a lovely private place to relax, and are set apart from one another, surrounded by trees and grass. Ours had a balcony overlooking a beautiful valley and forest, with a hammock that we set up in the evenings. Reina helped us choose activities during the day, restaurants at night, and gave us a guided tour of the property and gardens, during which we were treated to a refreshing glass of freshly made sugar cane juice. We also helped feed and milk the family's cows, and saw the endangered Agouti Pacas they keep as pets. These are experiences you simply don't get in the average hotel, not to mention Reina's deservedly famous breakfasts, which no one should ever pass up. These were the best meals we had our entire time in Costa Rica!  We would definitely love to return.

"Highly Recommended”
My family stayed at this small hotel in Monteverde for three days last week. I can't say enough about it. The host family - led by Reina, who oversees the hotel - were fantastic people who made sure our every need was met. Whether it was laundry, cooking exemplary breakfasts, or making last-minute, rush reservations for a family activity, Reina always came through. She was also good enough to give us a short tour of her family's working farm, which was a real treat and gave us a chance to drink some freshly minted Sugar Cane juice. The cabin we stayed in was two stories with plenty of space, and all four of us look at our stay here as one of the true highlights of our fantastic trip to Costa Rica.
An extra note about Reina's breakfasts: they were the best we had in Costa Rica, period. Great fruit juices, coffee picked and roasted on site, fresh EVERYTHING made lovingly and deliciously by Reina and her great staff. I highly recommend Canbas Valle Campanas.

We wish never had to leave!

Our cabin was quiet all day and we woke with the sounds of the birds on our porch.  A perfect place to enjoy Monteverde/Santa Elena, while still feeling like you are away on the country. Only a 15 minute walk to town and a great way to stretch legs. We will make this a stop on all our trips to Costa Rica! Thank you so much for being the perfect hosts. Adios

We’re so happy we found this little “Hidden” piece of Costa Rican treasure….Thanks you for providing so many extra special treats that made our stay so memorable.. As many have mentioned before breakfast was delicious and your homegrown coffee than we have tasted here. Your help and advice in booking our trips & transfers was invaluable and it was a pleasure to meet you and your family. We will miss spotting all the birds and animals from the balcony! We hope to rerun one day…

Muchas gracias, Pura Vida

What a beautiful place you have. We were fortunate, to have found your lovely bed and breakfast. Such a charming home and family we over the farm tour with all the educational bits- coffee, bananas, sugar cane and Sloths.

We were so glad to stay the extra day and go on the private horse back ride. Thanks you for all the wonderful suggestions, for an awesome breakfast. You certainly live in a cloud.
