We had such a great lunch and experience at Miriam's that we went back another day. The deck and the birds made it a spectacular experience. We took a tour of some of the cabins. We would gladly stay there for Miriam's cooking alone!

I didn't spend the night there, only passed by for a lunch. I had a great time, the view is awesome and the birds come to the deck to eat whatever Miriam throws. Prices are very good and the food is excellent and very good portions, I've been there twice.

If you want great wholesome home cooking, be sure to stop at Miriam's. We stayed one night in her cabin just a short drive from the restaurant so we got to enjoy a breakfast and dinner there. We still talk about her cooking because we miss it so. The portions were big and delicious. Her homemade jam was so good...

We stumbled across Miriam's by chance, originally stopping for a refreshing drink, after our walk. We sat out the back and enjoyed the wonderful array of birds that visited the bird table and trees. Not only did we enjoy a freshly made blackberry juice but decided to stay for lunch and ate like kings! The food was fresh, tasty, plentiful...

We stopped here for lunch as a walking group of 20 people. We were given a very warm welcome and served a delicious chilled fruit cocktail drink before sitting down to a substantial lunch of traditionally cooked food. The quantity and quality was excellent, as was the opportunity to watch the birds on the feeding tables at the rear of...

We stayed 2 nights in a tiny wooden room with a bathroom. We ate our meals at Miriam's and they were the best of our whole trip: simple, fresh, typical cuisine. Miriam was warm and welcoming. We were there to see the queztals farther down the valley, and with the help of our bird guide, Melvin, we did!

The cabins are located in a beautiful surrounding either close to the family owned forest with some trails or close to the restaurant. Our cabin (number 5) was very little and very rustic, but we just loved it! Everything seemed to be handpicked and very personal. There is a coffee maker, warm water and even a little electronic heater. But...

Miriam's is a little gem of a place, overlooking a beautiful valley with a large waterfall. While eating some traditional Costa Rica food, (try the Trout is just sublime) you can watch 6 or seven species of Hummers on the feeders plus Tanagers and other birds. Make sure you have a camera as the birds are close, real close

This is a wonderful little gem in the mountains of the Tilaran Cordillera. The family property consists of several hectares of preserved old-growth, primary forest as well as additional plantings done over the past 40 years or so. Starting with the family home and a restaurant, various cabins have been added which provide sufficient space and solitude to really relax...

Mariam treats you right at a very affordable price, with excellent food, and lots of birds right outside your door. Birding is especially good on the deck outside her dining room and you go down the road a short way to the wild avocado trees to see and photograph a Resplendent Quetzal.
