The restaurant Morphos has the most breathtaking sunsets in the world. We ate here 3 years prior and we traveled to Monteverde just to eat at this restaurant again. The food is amazing. Everything on the menu is flavorful and made with love.

Be prepared for the poor road conditions, many stretches of dirt road, may require 4 wheel drive in wet conditions (we had fairly dry weather). Downtown area is charming. Some exceptional views.

Loved this little town!!! People were super friendly & lots of activities to do. The road getting here from Manuel Antonio was rough so I would recommend driving in the day time. I would definitely visit again!!

Roads to get there are pretty horrible, however, definitely worth the trip. Go early in the day to view more wildlife and recommend always using a guide.
