Melvin and Saray welcome you to Monteverde! Melvin's House grew out of our family's desire to share our home life with visitors from around the world. Melvin is a naturalist who is native to Monteverde, and who has raised his family here. Melvin was born and raised in a large Costa Rican pioneer family who came to the San Luis Valley to make a new life outside of the capital city. At Melvin's House, surrounded by rolling pastures, clear mountain streams, and the cloud forest alive with sounds and color, you will experience a warm, family environment. We welcome you to explore with wonder and excitement the rich cloud forest environment surrounding our home. We hope to transmit our love of nature to you during your stay and that this brings you to a better knowledge of yourself and of your connection to the natural world.
