This place was a hit with our kids they explored like crazy!! The animals just roam free. Tons of iguanas everywhere in every color shape and size. The tiny mini horses are so friendly my kids fed them and they come up to tie fence to be loved on and petted. Don't bother trying to catch the iguanas there too...

Every thing overpriced and no option around. Once you are there you are trapped and you need to pay an expensive cab 40-60$ to go back to Liberia . Service is bad activities as well. I recommend to avoid this hotel and rincon de la vieja.

We have mixed feelings about our stay here. My husband put together a trip for 9 people in Costa Rica. This was our last stop for 4 nights and the driver of our small bus dropped us off, to return at the end of our stay. Upon arrival, the front desk had no records of our making reservations for 5...

Staff were very friendly with enough English to satisfy basic needs, desk clerk was very capable with English. No a/c but fans were sufficient with nighttime cooling, hot water showers. Great grounds for birding (Southern Lapwings, scarlet tanagers, palebilled woodpeckers, etc) and hiking back to see white faced monkeys and keel-billed toucan, experience sulphur pools and water fall pool. Very...

This lodge provides all you need as a base camp for local hikes, tours and activities. Although the room we stayed in did not have air con, the area is naturally breezy and blows through well. The nights we stayed were particularly windy, which made our room a little noisy, but not a problem by any sense of the imagination....

This is one of the most beautiful places I visited in Costa Rica. The staff is very friendly and the food is great. If you are looking for a place to enjoy nature this is the place because it has a lot to offer.

The winding gravel road leading upwards from the Pan-American Highway to the Rincón de la Vieja National Park is dusty and bumpy but as compensation offers many idyllic views such as the many grazing horses and ponies (Kelly U. was in heaven) in the pastures surrounding the entrance gate of the Rincón de la Vieja Lodge; a hotel consisting of...

Such beautiful surroundings! Unfortunately the hotel itself can really improve! Beds are squeaking and pretty uncomfortable, power in the bathroom is inconsistent and at times non existent (the toilet wouldn't flush and it then flushed by itself after half an hour!!), the breakfast food is pretty greasy and bland.... Such a pity because it has the potential of being a...
