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
The restaurant at CASEM offers authentic Costa Rican cooking at a good price. The food is reliably delicious served in huge portions. The arroz con pollo is some of the best around. It is not fancy, but it is a comfortable, kid-friendly place and the staff is always friendly.

The menu was handwritten on a... 更多
All goods are locally made so my family made sure to stop in and buy gifts at Casem. Impressive and diverse selection. Casem is also a great bird-watching spot.

As many items there are hand made, they could look like junk but we found many items that couldn't be found in the town centre. Wonderful initiative too. There is a great cafe just next to it, a coop coffee shop. Lovely place to sit... 更多
Seeing the handcrafts created by members of the Artisans Cooperative was a "must" for us when in Monteverde. We purchased small items to take home as gifts, pieces we know will last for years and years. Do make a point of stopping in. There's a great coffee shop nearby as well as a new shop that sells beautifully crafted homemade... 更多
We liked the embroidered items (shirts, decorating cloth/linen). Other than that, crafts at CASEM were okay. It’s a medium size store, front was better than the back (feel a little dusty with old looking coffee table books on shelf). There was work shop and gallery upstairs. We didn’t try the soda in store. It’s in the same proximity as Stella... 更多
