Very nice big room in semidetached bungalow overlooking the swimming pool. Unfortunately we arrived to late to use it. Variety of flowers and plants in the garden showed to us by the owner. Grounds go to the riverbank where lots of birds can be seen. Good but expensive restaurant on site.

We arrived by bus from Naranjo. The bus left us on side of the road to Cano Negro, next to a store called Agrocolos. We missed the bus to Cano Negro so we went to Agrocolos and we asked for a ride. One of the customers agreed to take us there for $25. It's a long ride and the road... More

This place is pretty out of the way, but if you want to see some great birds, etc. it is worth the hour ride on a bumpy dirt road. We only stayed one night and had a morning tour on the river. Saw many interesting birds, pointed out by a very knowledgeable guide. The hotel room was simple but nice.... More

My husband and I were booked here by the tour group we used, Costa Rica Gateway Tours. We traveled in the off season, so there were not many guests here--just two other parties whom we saw only at dinner. The rooms are in blocks spread out over the beautifully landscaped grounds, accessible by paths, which were well-lit at night. Flowers... More

This was a great stay. The highlight were the tours on the lagoon with bird expert Jimmy. He had the gift for gauging his delivery exactly for our two person tour. Had we visited in the high season the rating probably would have been higher but the lack of visitors makes the Lodge feel a little sad and unloved. Despite... More

This place was seemingly run by a couple of really friendly and helpful girls. 42 rooms but only a couple of others were occupied when we were there! Extensive grounds with lots of birds, e.g. collared aracaris. There was also a feeding station near the restaurant that attracted many beautiful birds. Big swimming pool, although the adjacent bar was not... More

We chose this as a more remote, less touristy way to see wetland birds and were not disappointed. I don't know why but we expected the accommodation to be basic, so were very pleasantly surprised with the spacious and well-equipped cabins, gorgeous grounds, fabulous pool and really very good and varied restaurant menu. There were a maximum of three cabins... More

The drive from Fortuna was fun particularly the last 20kms on dirt roads. We couldn't find Cano Negro to begin with, but when we got there it surpassed our expectations. We were expecting something very basic, but it was beautifully laid out with gardens, trees, ponds and shady areas. There was a lovely pool, the rooms were spacious and bathroom... More
