Where to stay in Monte Verde

For a small town, there are an exceptional number of accommodations in Monte Verde. There's no particular hotspot to aim for--almost every street offers several places to stay in the form of small inns or bed and breakfasts housed in traditional wooden houses. You can find a few larger hotels toward the edge of town or just beyond its limits. The high level of competition has ensured good-quality rooms and high standards of service across the board, in fact, plenty of accommodations offer spas and other luxury comforts as a part of your stay. Reserve your accommodations in advance, especially in January and February, when the town experiences its biggest influx of the year.
