One of my fans wanted more pics of the Monteverde Inn. I highly recommend it (http://www.monteverdeinfo.com/maps/monteverde.htm#monteverde-inn).
It was difficult to find at night, because our GPS didn't have the inn in its database (it kept sending us to the Monteverde Lodge, unfortunately). I nearly had a meltdown, I was so tired from driving all evening on unpaved roads.
But our travails to find it--driving down rocky, one-lane roads at night in the cloud forest--were worth it. The inn had a tremendous view of the Gulf and Peninsula of Nicoya (see previous post). One of the best things about it was the manager, Anthony, a cheerful, helpful host.

The building our rooms were in. We were on the edge of a cloud forest (see previous post with me in the center of a fig tree, and a tree covered with epiphytes).

Outside the breakfast room, a strange creature lurked. We never were quite sure what it's name was. It seemed related to raccoons.
