Yahaira Brenes Cruz

Yahaira has been working at the lodge for just six months, but is proud to have grown up in and still call Monteverde home today. She has also lived abroad, both within Costa Rica and in the United States.

She says a long stay in Pennsylvania played a large role in helping her to develop both English language skills and a sense of adventure. At age 21 she applied for a program that placed Costa Ricans desirous of studying another language in touch with employers in the United States. There she worked in a restaurant and shared an apartment with fellow young Costa Ricans.

no smoking

Smokers Be Aware!
Costa Rica has recently passed one of the strictest smoking regulations in the world; hotels are 100% SMOKE FREE.
If you are a guest at the hotel, and want to smoke, by law you are required to leave the property. This is a 300 meter walk to the road outside the main gate, day or night, rain or shine. We realize that this is very inconvenient, but it’s the law. There is an $800 fine for breaking this law.
