Monte Real Bed & Breakfast
Welcome! Thank you for visiting our Monte Real accommodations web site. We are located about 2 km from the business district of Atenas in a quiet, private setting. The International Airport Juan Santa Maria is within a half-hour reach and sites of interest, including beaches, are about an hour away by car or bus. We offer guided tours to any of a variety of Costa Rica's natural wonders conducted by my wife (Costa Rican/Tropical Botanist), myself (U.S.A./Biologist), or we can make arrangements to book you with a tour operator based on your preferences. Also available for participation as volunteers are a variety of sites including an orphange, elementary school, organic coffee plantation, orchid nursery and watershed project located in the Atenas City Government protected forest. We also offer Spanish lessons during weekdays tailored to your level of interest and time commitment. We have an extensive reference library on topics relative to Costa Rica covering plants and animals, maps, national parks, forest and biological reserves and other protected areas, and specialty tours. Our guests have come from a variety of countries, including Japan, Canada, the U.S., Ireland, Germany and England. Should you decide to stay with us, we look forward to having you!
