Monteverde Costa Rica 60109
A veritable mountaintop compound, El Establo offers an array of rejuvenating body therapies at its Green Leaf Spa. The grape and vanilla baths complement body wraps of algae or mineral rich clay. Local sloths strut their stuff, hanging from trees around the property. In true mountain lodge form, the power turns off during the night, so bringing a battery-powered alarm clock is a good bet. The two restaurants ensure a variety of food options, including a full breakfast buffet. The grounds are so wide that the hotel shuttles guests to and from their rooms.
