Good place to stay close to Cano Negro Wildlife Refuge. We drove here in a rental SUV, the lodge is 19 km back a very rough road, allow plenty of time for the drive. The lodge grounds are very nice, lots of birds, we also saw howler monkeys and a Central American woolly opossum on the grounds. The rooms are... More

Superb location for wildlife in the wetlands, many different birds on offer. Lodge organises boat trips which are well worth doing. Rooms are nice with small outdoor seating area. Good air con. Wi fi available. Lovely gardens with a swimming pool. Food good, but service a little slow. Certainly would recommend.

Place is difficult to find (long gravel road, and apparently not all signs on the main highway are in place), but good starting point to see Cano Negro. Staff is friendly and helpful, rooms are good with comfortable beds. Outdoor pool is big and nice, we even had parrots sitting above in the trees. They organise reserve tours, we did... More

Almost at the border with Nicaragua, this out of the way community hosted many species of birds. The gardens were well kept at the Lodge, and there were many interesting birds to keep us happy. We particularly enjoyed afternoon soaks in the pool. In better days, there had been a poolside bar where one could perch on a submerged stool... More

Cano Negro is a water bird watchers paradise. Located on the River Frio with lakes and lagoons. The natural lodge is pretty much the only accommodation of any note here. Food basic in a canteen atmosphere but service cheerful. Highlight is going on the lagoons. Book the hotel guide Jimy in advance - VERY knowledgeable. Lovely garden setting with resident... More

This stay was nice but I was disappointed with the lack of information about things to do and help in finding our way around. It took a couple of tries to happen upon the entrance to the park and we could not find places to go walking. I had hoped the hotel would be on the water and we could... More

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.
