It is located 31kms from Liberia and it borders with the National Park Rincón de la Vieja. It has an area of approximately 2,000 acres, 1,400 of which are intended to regenerate the forest and where adventure activities take place, always protecting the environment. The remaining 600 acres are dedicated to cattle raising and the ranch produces the majority of the products that the Lodge consumes. « less

We started off with the best tour guide ever ( Goose ) and horseback riding through the trails. Beautiful scenery! Down to the steam room, mud bath and hot springs. I had never had a mud bath so I got one that day. The mud was so warm and relaxing. After it dried and I rinsed off I joined my... More

My friend & I came here on a guided excursion. First we hiked up through the beautiful forest and zip lined down. The zip lining was sooo much fun...and easy to do. Near the end of the zip line, we found out there were monkeys. Our tour guide was nice enough to take us and another couple to see them... More

We drove up from Playa Conchal in the morning and my wife, 10 yo son, and 6 yo daughter did the zip line and water slide. Absolutely amazing fun, great guides on the zip lines, we all loved it. Next time we'll spend the night.

We had a party of 8 ranging from age 8 through age 71. Everyone participated in all of the activities offered, including zip lining, water slide through the jungle, horseback riding, mud bath and hot springs. The lunch included is wonderful and yummy. We had a lot of fun laughing together!

My wife and I went here one day during our honeymoon and it was pretty good place and had a bunch to do. Zip-line, Hot springs, Mud Baths, Food, Water-slide. Overall was good but it was a little grungy. The mud baths weren't really baths and were more like rubbing mud on you and then washing it off. We had... More

The Buena Vista Tour was so great! We were staying at the Playa Flamingo, so we had to ride quite a ways to get there. We actually had a Turismo van come to pick us up early, and we got a ride into Liberia, where we waited and got on the actual bus for the tour. We had a guide,... More

I cannot say enough about our experience at Buena Vista! First, and most importantly, the staff was incredible! They treated us so well, and were very good a their jobs. The zip lines (and tarzan swing) were a lot of fun. I was never concerned about my safety, and the staff was very competent. The water slide was also so... More

I can't say enough good things about our visit here. From the outset it felt like we were being treated like royalty. Everyone we met was extremely nice and went out of their way to give us the best experience we could ask for. We had a BLAST on the ziplines and even got the nerve to do some stunts.... More

My husband and I were booked through Costa Rica Vacations to do the mega combo with the horseback ride, the hot springs and mud bath, the water slide and the zip lines. I don't know what I was thinking, I have a fear of heights! The horseback riding was ok. Those poor horses on some very rocky downhill slopes. I... More
