Beautiful gardens, great people. The room was clean but average. We felt secure and comfortable. We had a vehicle so the parking was excellent. The breakfast was a nice Tico style. We didn't eat dinner but I hear it's great too. The chocolate tour was very informative and interactive, our girl leading it was super.

We arrived at the airport at 11:30 and managed to stop at the La Paz waterfall on our way to TIrimbina lodge. We spent the following day exploring the rainforest on their well marked trails. We spotted a Howler monkey and a two-toes sloth and quickly became experts on spotting the Strawberry Poison-dart frogs and the green and black poison...

Very comfortable rooms and good meals. The trails are excellent with the areas across the river quite good for birds. The staff was very knowledgeable. We bought nothing at the gift shop but they had a nice selection. This was a fine place for birding and very close to La Selva.

Beautiful resort. Nice rooms and pool. Hotel staff very friendly and helpful. Lots of steps but golf cart made it nice for those with walking problems. Not really near anywhere (Quepos or Manual Antonio) so transportation is needed if you want to go somewhere.

We visited La Tirimbina for their Chocolate Tour and were very pleasantly surprised by the location. A 250 mt hanging bridge takes you to the forest reserve and nature trails, one of which is used for the Chocolate Tour, which was educational, entertaining, and most importantly delicious. We didn't have time to experience anything else around the area, but we...

Nature is what drive to Costa rica, do not missed this place, great birding and nature walks, need to cross a hanging bridge over Sarapiqui`s river. The type of forest it is a lowland tropical rain forest, early walks are better than afternoon, more chances of seen wildlife mostly birds. Bat`s lecture are very informative.

I enjoyed my stay at Tirimbina Lodge. I was also grateful to have access to transportation to enjoy other activities and food in the area. The meal plan was expensive for lunch and dinner, but the quality did not match the price. The trails through the forest were excellent, and walking them alone was peaceful and rejuvenating. I highly recommend...

We stayed in one of the Lodge's deluxe rooms for three nights. All the staff we met were very friendly and helpful. The room was reasonably spacious, clean and comfortable. It also had the benefit of a private terrace, though the privacy was somewhat invaded when a sloth was spotted at the top of a tree just outside the room....

This was a place we stayed at for one night as part of a 7 day adventure trip. The rooms were nicely decorated and very clean. It may not have all the amenities of a Hilton but keep in mind that you are in the middle of a jungle. The surrounding area and grounds are beautiful. All the staff was...
