Albergue el Manantial, Hotel de Montana
Approx. $20 - $25

Unique Qualities: Basic rooms with small baths and electric shower heads, but great home-cooked food and cheaper than the other options in the area. A funny little wading pool and lots of birds. Owned and run by a very friendly Tico family. Guided horse back riding tours are available to a nearby waterfall, although the horses were a bit tired looking and the guide spoke no English. Again, this is a basic place and it helps to have some command of Spanish, but we enjoyed our one night here, although Kate remembers the bedbugs vividly!

Price Comparison: least expensive
Directions: San Gerardo de Dota, 9 km down off the Pan American Highway on the western slopes of the Cerro de la Muerte, approx. 40 km south of Cartaga.
