We took a short taxi ride from the Cloud Forest Lodge into Monteverde for lunch at Stella's Bakery and decided to take a look at this store located across the way. They have lots of pretty embroidered items made locally. The prices were a bit high though. Maybe on our next visit, we will try the little restaurant hidden at... 更多
Oh my, what tasty food! Original, favorful, plentiful - the best Tico food we have had on our month long trip. Seriously good. The restaurant is located in the back of the craft shop. It's a hidden gem. Not well known by most tourists. Our airbnb host highlighted the restaurant as a place to eat. Excellent value.

There is an amazing store with the work of many women artists, I bought beautiful handkerchiefs embroidered by hand.

CASEM is the only souvenir shop located in the Monteverde Community that sells arts and crafts made by local artists. These group of women started their coop many years ago and have gone a long way. They are working hard to acquire all they need to teach other women how to create art and provide a way to help each... 更多
The owner of the house we stayed at brought us here. And boy were we thankful for it! We had the special root and beef soup, both the cheese and chicken empanadas, and braised beef with home made freshly ground corn tortilla. They were all amazing! The passion fruit juice was very tasty. I wish we had room to eat... 更多
