“live,travel,adventure,bless…”

“the only people for me are the mad ones, the ones who are mad to live, mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time, the ones who never yawn or say a commonplace thing, but burn, burn, burn like yellow roman candles exploding like spiders across the stars.” -Jack Kerouac.

TACO TACO

Responding to our guests’ request for breakfast at the hotel, we created Taco Taco to bring farm fresh, locally sourced, handmade Mexican food to Monteverde. Made fresh while you wait. Fast, simple and yummy. This is a little slice of tex-mex heaven in the cloud forest. Enjoy!
