El Establio in Monteverde - This was a very nice resort. It is situated on a rather steep hill, which had a wonderful view of the cloud forest. The walls are very thin so if you have loud neighbors you will hear them. We had a tour bus parked outside the main door. Lucky for us, we only had to hear them for one night. We were in the 600 building which over looked a pound by a restaurant that we only opened for a couple hours during Happy Hour. We never made it back in time to try it. The resort was very large and included breakfast which was really crowded and had a good variety of food, from cereal to made-to-order omelets. Both days there were tour busses waiting for people to finish their breakfasts. We went to the El Trapiche Coffee and Sugar Cane Tour. It is a great little family owned and working farm. The tour lasted a couple hours and was very informative. They show you where and how they grow the coffee and the sugar cane. Towards the end of the tour you get to make some candy with the sugar cane and it tastes wonderfully like molasses. The next day we did the 100% Adventure Combo Tour. We enjoyed the zip lining, steam room, horse back riding and hot springs.
