Sobre Melvin Leitón Méndez

I was born and raised in a traditional Costa Rican family in San Luis,Monteverde surrounded by the cloud-bathed mountains of Monteverde.

Monteverde’s almost other-worldly natural beauty captivates residents and visitors alike with its dramatic sunsets, brilliant rainbows, stunning views, and ever-changing weather.

Birds — colorful, bountiful, and entertaining — were my childhood toys. Their presence around my home, and in the fields and forests where I played,marked the beginning of my journey as a naturalist, and initiated my awareness of the peace and beauty found in healthy ecosystems.

Nearly twenty years ago,I took the plunge into making a career out of what I have always loved: nature. In 1986, I received a scholarship from Rare, an international conservation and humanitarian organization, and immersed myself in studies about biodiversity and rehabilitating tropical ecosystems. Since then I have continued to expand my knowledge through training and constant contact with international scientists at the Cloud Forest Reserve.

As I have daily criss-crossed these mountain trails, observing its wildlife, and watching tourism grow in my country, I see how great an impact humans have on nature, and also how easy it is to forget how the richness of our lives depends directly on the quality of the soil, air, plants and animals all around the globe.

By using our intelligence, by travelling responsibly, and living conscientiously, we can aid ecosystems to stay strong and balanced.

My connection to Monteverde’s cloud forests has made me a passionate educator not only about the incredible diversity of plant and animal life in our varied micro-climates, but, even more importantly, about our relationship with nature.

This, our one and only planet earth, and these, some of its many and incredible varied ecosystems, deserve our admiration and respect. I hope to transmit these values through my work, and am grateful for the opportunity to share my insights and observat

Por qué Melvin Leitón Méndez eligió Monte Verde

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.

Wonderful family friendly house on quiet forested property

  • 5 de 5

The house was perfect for our family of 2 grandparents 2 parents and 2 school age kids. Melvin is a wonderful host, and helped us with tour reservations. We even went to his Family farm, where his brother gave us a delightful tour and his sister made delicious pizza. We highly recommend Melvins house!

Quiet Retreat

  • 5 de 5

We loved our stay in Monte Verde. This house was perfect for our family to decompress after the holidays. This lovely mountain home with large windows had everything we needed for a comfortable mountain stay. We had an 11 year old and 14 year old who loved the adventure as well. We recommend walking down the hill for the overlook to Nicoya Bay.

Melvin was a wonderful host & we were pleased with our tour through his family farm & night walk (pack a flashlight if you are considering a night walk). It was so easy to use him as our guide because it was one less thing to worry about - plus he is such a nice man who has a wonderful energy! On our way out of town, we did the hanging bridges at Selvatura. Melvin made a reservation for us which was very nice as well.

Our only complaint was that the VRBO directions were not good. But, anyone who has driven in Costa Rica can understand that roads are not marked & it is much easy to arrive in the woods during the day! After much Internet searching during our drive, I realized the other online booking site has much clearer directions (coming from Liberia, I should have seen that you go to St. Elena, turn left & you are 90% there). We were never lost, but we were also never quite sure if we were going the right direction - it also took about 4 hours from Liberia airport versus the 2.5 our gps originally predicted.

We thought our visit to Monte Verde captured a unique segment of Costa Rica. It's a beautiful part of the country!

Melvin´s House, a beautiful house in the heart of the Monteverde Cloud Forest is located just 2 km from the Monteverde Reserve. Has 1500 mtrs2 of virgin forest and lush flora and fauna. Birds such as the quetzal and the bell can be seen in its surroundings.

It is a guest house, designed to enjoy a relaxing holiday in the mountains surrounded by clouds and abundant vegetation. Or spend a few months sharing with a community full of recreation, health, educational activities and spirituality. If you have children, the community offers two excellent private schools. Bilingual Monteverde Friends School only 800 mtrs of your stay and the Cloud Forest School which has a private bus service.

Melvin’s House nació en el seno familiar, de un sentimiento por querer mostrar la vida de un guía naturalista, nativo y criado en un ambiente familiar, de costumbres 100% costarricenses, entre campos verdes, aguas cristalinas y sonidos propios de un bosque nuboso.

El sentimiento hogareño de un hospedaje con sentimiento propio, del ser costarricense ambiente verde, y de una atención personal, hacen que usted descubra el ser que existe entre la pasión de ser atendido por un naturalista y su ambiente familiar, transmitido al amor a la vida, junto con el quehacer diario de amantes de lo natural y espiritual que encierra sus vidas.

Junto a Melvin usted podrá descubrir rincones naturales, que guardan el sentir real de un pueblo que ha desarrollado el carácter en la atención de sus visitantes cada año, llevándose un sentido de libertad y lo puro del verdadero amor a todo lo que nos rodea en esta tierra de preservación a la vida como esencia.
