The development of this area began some decades ago with the settlement of North American Quakers looking to live a quiet and secluded life in harmony with nature. Besides dairy farming, they were dedicated to protecting the surrounding cloud forest and eventually created the now world-famous “Monteverde Reserve”. Due to the constant ascent of tourists wishing to visit this area, many villagers decided to build and manage mostly small, rustic hotels or lodges and nowadays Monteverde offers many different options of accommodations.
